cjl6 (57) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Drank at the tasting room. Okay lets be honest... for a 10% ABV in a Belgian golden I expect the candi sugar to dominate, drying out the pallet and turning a strong beer into a lighter beer with a slight malt background and a yeast flavor to dominate the flavor. All that I could think about by drinking this beer was how thick and heavy it is. If I drank this through a straw it would take effort to suck it through the straw. This is not an easy to drink beer. Yes the flavors are very complex and nice, but it takes effort to finish the gorgeous tulip glass it came in. My friend agreed, and then the couple to my side also agreed, offering us some of their beer if we would like it. I gave it a 2.7 because yeah it is a very tasty beer but if Im trying to kick back a few beers and hang out with friends this wouldnt be my first choice.

Tide (3642) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 18, 2017
Draught at Hair of the Dog. Hazy amber color, white head. Bittersweet taste with citrus, ripe fruits, peach, resin, a bit of hops, pine and earthy notes. Bittersweet finish with citrus, hops, peach, resin, earthy notes and a bit of alcohol. Excellent brew, a kind of a mixture of barley wine and Belgian strong ale.

Korcz (2915) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Pomiędzy Triplem a utlenionym na miodowo IIPA. Całkiem spora goryczka, sporo miłej, owocowo-przyprawowej słodyczy. Fajne.

josanguapo (1511) - SPAIN - MAR 18, 2017
From Mikkeller Shop. In Teku glass. Batch 96. Playing Shantae Pirates Curse. Pretty alcoholic and sweet. However, its not unpleasant but just the opposite thanks to a good usage of candi sugar and hops. Sticky and oily

Butelka, bottlesharing w Piwotece. Taka wypadkowa DIPA i BW. Sporo chmielu, ale też przyjemnie słodkie i gładkie. Fajne.

mariuspoenari (2204) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2017
Sampled at ACBF 2017, Vichte. Clear golden pour with a thin fine-grained off-white head. Notes of citrus hops, bitter hops, dried fruit, caramel, soft alcohol. Feels more like a triple IPA than a barleywine, but I am not complaining!
