Mad_Ferret (1007) - SWEDEN - APR 9, 2016
Draught at Hatten. Pale clear bright orange amber, no head. Gluey alcohol caramel and dried fruits with some leather and spice. Sweet and spicy alcoholic with leather, citrus and dried fruits. Spicy prickly alcoholic finish. Salty. Big body, low pointy carbonation, oily sticky. Complex, hot and fruity. Probably quite nice after a few years.

2008 vintage bottle shared at the Grem. Huge oak-forward nose with honey, caramel, dark fruit, vanilla and star anise. Good sherry-like mouthfeel with more vanilla and oak really dominating again. Very creamy on the palate. Sweet and oaky on the finish. Really fantastic beer for a person who doesnt like most barley wines.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2016 On tap at the brewery. Cloudy orange pour with bone white foam and top to bottom sheeting lace. Taste is sweet and savory with fantastic flavors of toasted coconut, toffee, vanilla, licorice. Aroma is woody along with all other taste deScriptors. Finely carbonated, creamy mouthfeel. My first perfect beer after almost seven years on this site, holy cow. Regular Fred is one of my favorite beers of all time and barrel aging just raises up an already awesome beer to phenomenal in every respect.

Draft. Aroma of. Tight, thin lace. Flavors of apple cider, chewy caramel, a hint of toffee. Oak comes through at the finish, slightly high register, then a clean finish. No hint of booze. Just flavor.

tom10101 (5543) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle (12 oz). Vintage 2013. From cparles, thanks! Clear dark copper with a small beige head leaving little lacing. Aroma is wonderfully complex with molasses, oak, vanilla, toasted malts, tobacco, figs, dates, toffee, raisins, caramelized apples, chocolatey notes and mild to moderate spiciness. Taste is mellow and reasonably sweet with tobacco, vanilla, oak, raisins, toffee, caramel, toasted malts, chocolate, mild to moderate spiciness and a bit of alcohol. Full body. Moderate to medium carbonation. Liquorous mouthfeel. Fruity finish with a nice alcohol warmth. Wonderfully balanced and complex Barley Wine. Im usually not fond of the style, but I had no problem at all drinking the whole bottle by myself. Amazing beer!

Davros (2871) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2016
Pours amber with a small head. Nose shows oak, honey, vanilla, toffee, sherry and golden syrup. Flavours include more golden syrup, soft booze, whisky-like characters, faint oxidised notes and soft grassy hops. Seriously good.
