*NEW* 2017 vintage 650 ml bottle (Blue Label) purchased at a local liquor mart. Aroma consists of caramel, raisins, vanilla and herbs. Appearance is an almost clear red/amber colour with a minimal tan head. Taste is lightly sweet with a slight sourness and alcohol presence. It's an smooth, easy-drinking brew that will only get better as it ages! tderoeck (10983) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2017

Thank you for sharing tderoeck! 650 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG17. 2014 Vintage. Dark amber, little head. Nose is thick herbal sludge, bitter malt syrup, caramel. Surprisingly bitter herbal, thick bitter herbs, malt syrup, caramel, sludge. Nice lingering thick bitterness. Crude & far more bitter than expected especially with age but a very neat USA style bitter Barleywine. Benzai (17000) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2017

0.341l waxed twist-off cap from 2008 shared with The Tasting Crew and our Kristiansandsfriends. The first twist-off cap I’ve ever seen waxed ... Looks nice also. Deep blurry ruby almost with a small kinda islands and sidesticking off-white head. Sweetish caramel and malty nose. There’s raisins tones, burned raisins with oxidized traces in the back. Old bottle, but it works. Slightly burned in a way. Burned red fruits. Some alco warmth tailing this. Pleasant. 16.06.2014 shrubber85 (11762) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle (2014). Woody raisin, cherry, toffee malt, and hay aroma. Copper with small head. Moderately sweet raisin, cherry, orange, toffee malt, and moderately bitter alcohol and herbal hay flavor. Nice body and balance. Great fruity flavor - delicious. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 13, 2016
Clearish ruby red, big malty aroma. I havent had this since the 12oz waxed bottles in about 2009? Very fruity, slightly boozy with a little citrus. Overall very good, i hope they continue making it. dchmela (3089) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle from Steve, 2014. Deep reddish pour. Huge malt sweetness, slightly wine notes. Taste is smooth malt, big body and hoppy bite. Really good. vadie (1257) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2015
Rouge foncer avec une petite robe tan. L’arôme à plein de fruits séchées, du malt, caramel et l’alcool. En bouche il y a les mêmes saveurs et plein du corps. L’alcool est présent, mais il ne masque pas le goût.
