It’s intense, attention seekingly hoppy, and definitely your kind of beer. A beer with a big ego, drive and a huge thirst for recognition.

330ml bottle (Puu, Tallinn)
Lovely rich barley wine aroma. Nice mahogany persistent head. Nice woody nutty taste, pleasantly sweet malty palate. Finish nicely drying, perhaps too drying, but I will put up with it, as I do like it. Does get the boost on. Raw, but does manage to hit most of the

CaptainTilven (191) - Nancy, FRANCE - MAY 28, 2016
Dégustée à 13,6°C. Corps de couleur cuivre foncé très jolie, opaque; mousse beige rosé très fine, somptueuse mais qui fond vite pour disparaître totalement. Arômes de pamplemousse et de fruits exotiques, malt et caramel; un peu de café; un petit côté métallique; peut-être des fruits rouges. Saveurs de cacao; amertume très enveloppante, très profonde, une pointe d’acidité qui raffine. Beaucoup de corps et de rondeur, avec du raffinement. Grande complexité mais peu d’harmonie.

Dark translucent brown color with small off-white head and crazy messy lacing. Aroma has nice strong barley and alcohol tingle, slight vinous notes. Flavor has great smooth caramel malts, slightly bitter, a bit of cocoa almost. Very smooth and easy drinking for 10.3!

PabloZab (1521) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Butelka 330ml. Piwo klarowne o miedzianej barwie, czerwonawej pod światło. Piana koloru ecru jest średnio obfita i szybko redukuje się praktycznie do zera, nie zostawiając śladów na szkle. Aromat jest dość intensywny, słodkawy, słodowy, delikatnie karmelowy, owocowo-winny ale bez nut alkoholu, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku słodkie, słodowe z nutami karmelu, owocowymi i nutką alkoholu ale w przystępnej postaci. Goryczka dość wysoka, nieco alkoholowa, delikatnie gryząca z wyraźnym efektem rozgrzewania już po kilku łykach. Piwo delikatnie oleiste, treściwe w odczuciu choć przeszkadza nieco ciut wysokie wysycenie i nieco za duży alkohol ale tylko w smaku. Pije się powoli z przyjemnością, delektując się każdym łykiem i mając na względzie moc trunku. Przyjemne piwo choć z kapci nie wyrywa, bardzo dobry aromat ale zbyt agresywnie alkoholowe w smaku.

(Evil Twin Freudian Slip) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 10.3% Deep red colour on the body with a small tan head, good density and retention. Aroma has plenty of hops, anise -reminding of sambuca- , red fruits, light orange peel. Taste has also red fruits, anise, alcohol, sambuca or ouzo reminding flavours especially on the afinish and aftertaste, orange peel, light citrus. Medium body, good carbonation, sticky palate. Quite good, interesting barley wine.

Bottle. Heather and I picked these up at DeLock’s in Munster after a quick trip to 3F’s (side-note: bad idea visiting the brewery a week before DLD). Coppery brown pour, medium off-white head, nose is candy sugar, maple, vanilla, dried fruit (dates, figs and prunes), marshmallow. Mouth is medium-full, but not sticky like some, definitely drier than I like my barleywines (Heather agreed), but tasted an awful lot like everything you’d find in good candy minus the sugary part -- caramel, toffee, vanilla, maple, brown sugar, then some lingering bitterness. Overall this was good, although I’d like it better a touch sweeter. Just hit 1,234 ratings... like an alcoholic Sesame Street lesson in counting. Hopefully my liver holds out til 12,345 ;-P

Bawelt (874) - Lyon, FRANCE - APR 19, 2016
Une barley wine comme je les aime, comme elles devraient être. Nez typique : un fond vieux caramel fumé, du porto, des fruits rouges, un fond pomme cannelle, équilibre parfait. Bouche archi ronde, très équilibrée, peu éthylique. Hyper caramel, assez liquoreuse, pointe d’amertume aux aspects oranges amères. Bouche moins riche que le bouquet mais très équilibrée, puissante. On perçoit les fruits rouges dans la longueur.
