Mad_Ferret (1013) - SWEDEN - APR 24, 2016
Baronen 2014. Fl, hemma
App: rejält mörk rödaktig mahogny färg med ett svårbyggt gulnat skum.
Aroma: Oj vad mycket farin! Eller är det honung med soja? Soja, farin, karamel/sirap med djupa toner av plommon/sviskon och romdränkta russin plus klistrig alkohol. Udda men spännande.
Taste: Stor sötma av knäck och sirap som balanseras bra med lite lätt rostade av kaffe och sötsyrliga plommon och beska med pomerans och örter. Russin, lakrits och läder är med i mixen också.
Palate: Stor men ändå slimmad och följsam med mjuk kolsyra och viskös/klibbig textur.
Overall: Sveriges bästa brittiska barley wine? Tydlig men mjuk alkohol, hög sötma, bra maltkaraktär, inte för forcerad humlekaraktär. Känns som en superkandidat att slänga i källaren några år till. Men visst fan går det att dricka nu.

330ml bottle from Systembolaget, vintage 2014, abv 10.4%. Murky brown with a fizzy tan head that disappears quickly, leaving no lacing. A lot of raisins in the aroma, Sangria and dried fruit, malt and dough. Smooth, sweet and rounded mouthfeel, mildly carbonated. Very sweet taste, raisins dominate, toffee, honey and dates. Too sweet.

23Skidoo (69) - SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2016
Dark brown, decent head. Aroma: oxidised green apple, oats, tobacco, tomato juice. Taste has similar notes, plus some wood, honey, more pronounced tobacco, leather, green leaves and raisins. Bittersweet. Velvety body. Complex and unexpectedly good.

MichaelAwesome (6501) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2015
Recht dick und ebenso stark mit angenehmer Trinkbarkeit, etwas an Würze, einiges Früchten und einer gewissen Säure. Vollmundig, dem Alkohol durchaus zugetan und leicht getreidig. Dennoch belebend und befriedigend.

McTapps (6715) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle from a trade. The beer has got a hazy dark brown colour with a smooth head and smooth body. Aroma of barley, malt and bread. Taste of intense barley, cookies, barrel, malt, rum, roisins, straw and fruits. Intense finish. Nice and good one.
