Bottle shared with (and courtasy of) The Bergen tasting crew, and Gunnar. Has a hazy dark brown colour with a medium beige head. Lots of hops in a fruity aroma with the addition of dried fruit, pine and rye. A lot of malt in the flavour and more powerful hops as well, almost herbal with grass and pine. The mouthfeel is soft and slick, and has a medium bitterness. A very nice ale! I also understand that theres a huge difference between an English barley wine and an American one. This is closer to a DIPA.

bulldogops (2320) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2016
Golden pour with a bubbly tan head, decent retention. Aroma is American oak, vanilla,cracked wheat, vanilla, powdered sugar, wildflower honey Low-medium carbonation, explosive alcohol warmth and depth. Palate is a whirlwind of malty sweet, and alcoholic, earthy dry tones. A phenomenal beer.

Couleur brun/rouge du plus bel effet, mousse prsente, mais pas trop non plus. Assez discret au pif, on peroit les malts et du caramel, mais faut pas mal chercher. En revanche en bouche a pte de partout avec des notes de pruneaux et de vin cuit de type Porto. Les houblons sont aussi pas mal prsents pour une bire du genre avec une amertume assez prsente. Vraiment trs chouette !

ajnepple (5413) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2016
12 oz single bottle from Mollys Spirits. Reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, resinous hops and light alcohol. The flavor adds medium to heavy bitterness and mild sweetness with hints of fruity esters. Full body with a lingering hoppy finish that mellows out to a nice balance as it warms. A nice sipper overall.

Mrkt brnstensfrgad, disig. Alkoholig doft med apelsin- och grapeskal. Vins smak med en stor beska som kommer direkt, mycket av det vita p grapenfrukten. Tja, lite fr mycket beska, blev lite enkelsprig. De Klomp: Barley Wine-provning

Una Barley Wine de color marrón anaranjado y baja carbonatación. Su aroma es a caramelo toffee, manjar y toques frutales de mango y plátano maduro. Su sabor es a toffee, caramelo, ciruelas, vainilla, chocolate amargo y cáscara de pomelo con el alto amargor del lúpulo y un final alcohólico a cognac. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Echon (414) - rhus, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2016
Deep red. Malt, caramel, dried fruit, a bit of alcohol and some spicy hops come to mind here. The taste is full and sweet, with a good bitter finish. It hides the abv fairly well. Full body. Overall, a great barley wine. It is not overly sweet, as some of Evil Twins beers tend to be, and I enjoyed it until the last drop. Not as vinous as The Perfect Nose. Rich and tasty.
