Brilliant. Displays barrel like a hammer to the face. Smooth easy malt holds the body.

harrisoni (17685) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle grand tasting RBESG14. Hazy amber no real head. Candied tangerine. Sweet. Barrel ageing helps the beer. Pretty decent. Like it really. Nice.

olio (9744) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2014
33 cl bottle. BBE 12/2015.
Pours cloudy mahogany color with a minimal head. Lots of sweet fruits and toffee on the nose, caramel malts, some biscuits, bourbon, wood and faint syrup. Sweet apricot and sugary caramel on the flavor, lots of bourbon, mild vanilla also. Soft carbonation, full-bodied, nice warming alcohol burn on the finish. This might be too sweet for some but its just the right amount for the alcohol content. Very good.

Melker (254) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
Deep mahogny color, bone white head. Super nice aroma of bourbon, caramel, oak, dried fruits, vanilla, hints of smoke. Taste is very sweet and very heavy. Some nice bitterness also. Alcohol is well hidden. Really love these heavy and sweet barley wines but one bottle is too much, had to share with a mate.

Thought this was exciting and different. The aroma and taste differs. Aroma has lots oF bourbon, taste has more sugar. Complex and nice IF a bit sweet. Too much with 33cl...

Leini (1924) - SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy amber body with pretty very low head. Aromas of vanilla, caramel, dried fruits, oak and fudge. Distinct flavors from the bourbon barrel, followed by alcohol, dark fruit pepper and syrup.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Bouteille. De Molen Shop.Robe ambre lumineuse , quasi absence de mousse. Nez malt , caramlise ,pralin lgrement bois. Alcool trs prsent . Bouche ronde trs sucr , le caramel et la praline dominent , puis des notes de vanilles , de pruneaux et de chne enrobent cette bouche gourmande. On sent bien les armes typiques du bourbon. La final est alcoolise avec des notes de cerises confites . Corps liquoreux et plat. Un barley wine trs charge a boire en digestif et a rserve aux amateurs du genre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cool_Bond (2469) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2014
Alcohol and yeast is what I feel most of the smell. Very heavy taste of licorice, oak and alcohol. A heavy bitterness that more passes to alcohol flavor and fills the mouth a long time. What I like about this so I would not recommend it. It was not really my Barley Wine beer. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Oklar brnstens frgad med ett mycket litet och orange skum. Doft: Alkohol, fat, kola, ntter, grymt vermogen citrus, gummi. Smak: Samma som doft men inget gummi + fat, st humle. Alldeles fr mycket alkohol i bde doft och smak, srskilt i smaken.
