50 cl bottle @ home, BBE: doomsdayolio (10692) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2012
Aroma is sweet and ”sticky” with somewhat harsh malt, lots caramel and hints of berries typical to danish ales. Flavour is sweet with lots of harsh malt, some oaky notes and caramel and slightly stinging alcohol that does not disturb much. Also hints of ”Danish berries” on some sips. Good.
50 cl bottle. BBE on Doomsday.jmgreenuk (10385) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 10, 2012
Pours clear amber color with a large frothy head. Aroma of ripe fruits, hops, toffee, strong caramel and hay. Flavor has also lots of caramel, ripe fruits, mild alcohol notes and some yeast. Some dark ripe berries appear on recoil. Quite rich malty palate with a mild alcohol kick at the finish. Somewhat floury and stuffy palate.
Bottle courtesy of and shared with Iphonephan. Poured a cloudy golden brown with a light frothy head. A wonderful mellow bitter aroma with a strikingly over bitter taste for a barley wine, but the bitterness is short lasting and the palate is rather smooth. A really rich and special beer.

Bottle. Pours a nice dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma is really nice and malty, lots caramel, toffee, sweet malts, brown sugar, some hop bitterness still left, though I think this is an older bottle, marmalade and more traditional English fruit flavors. The flavor follows the nose, I get lots of the caramel and toffee, the sweet malt, brown sugar, dark fruits, some hop bitterness, marmalade, fruit cake and the traditional English fruit flavors. The body is medium to full with a silky mouth feel. Overall a great Barley Wine, I would love to see this barrel aged!
