Pure class! Beautiful aroma of coffee, grass, red berries and several other things. Taste of licorice and a perfect level of bitterness. Lovely-looking too. Bassadam (15) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 30, 2012
My first experience with this beer style... and surely not last. Rich lightly sour taste with nice bitter end. alfhansen (35) - Bryne, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2012
33 cl bottle at home. Saved this for International Beer Day, and this one certainly did not dissapoint. Very heavy biscuity and dried fruit aroma also a bit of citrus. Nice caramel and biscuit flavour, very complex and does a good job concealing it’s very rough 10% ABV. A very surprising and distinct chinooky finish makes this one of the better barley wines i have had so far. My girlfriends comment was "it taste like good rum", and i can not fault that, it actually does. tderoeck (11163) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2014
10/IV/14 - 33cl bottle from... Kees maybe? Don’t remember, I’ve had it in my beer fridge like forever. Drank @ home - BB: XII/2013 (2014-360) If I got it from Kees, then thanks a lot for the bottle! If not, then just thanks for making such an awesome beer(s)!Fin (11329) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2012
Clear red purple beer, small irregular beige head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, bubble gum, peach candy, some caramel, sugary, sweet, red lace candy, strawberry jam. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: lots of strawberry, other red fruits jam, some overripe banana, pretty sweet, caramel, some citrus, soft bitter touch. Aftertaste: very fruity, raspberry and cherry candy, bitter hops, some caramel, sugary, red lace candy. Lovely!
On tap at De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 02.03.12 Pours amber with a white head. This is initially quite furiously both bitter & sweet with an emphasis on the bitterness. There are some dusty hops and a significant warming from the alcohol. Citrussy (lemony) under that sweetness with a slight pithy edge. A7 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.1

Barley wine greatness from Emelisse. Somehow they mixed the sweetness of a barley wine with the smooth bitterness of hops. Really good. Benzai (17008) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 2, 2012
Sampled @ PINT Winterbierfestival, Gouda 2012. Slightly hazy dark amber color, small off-white head. Smell slightly malts, pretty hoppy, slightly sweet. Taste malts, sweet, alcohol, hops. Full carbonation, medium body. MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber, tea like colour with a small beige head. Aroma is full of malts, caramel, madeira. Flavour is quite sweet and a bit alcoholic, but again backed up by strong malty base. Even carries a bit of a hoppy bite in the end of the flavour. Long lasting, bittersweet aftertaste. Nice in balance and a great sipper! Abijen (2572) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
Pours a dark orange muddy brown unclear beer with a good white head. Smells alcohol alot, bourbon, vanilla. Tastes chocolate, vanilla, raisins, alcohol. Heavy shit. Average carbo, thick body and a sticky texture. Bit too old maybe but still very good.
