courtesy of, and shared with Gnoff.
Aroma; lactose, malty, grainy with dark fruits; raisins that seemed to give a stronger aroma with the age.
Taste, chocolate malts, with a chocolate milk palate, overal profile keeps a good dose of abvand aspect is rather boozy. deanso (10178) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - AUG 26, 2010
not much head. Amber colour. Great barley wine. Very smooth! JorisPPattyn (10061) - BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2010
Light gushing to medium, dense yellow-cream head, not very stable over ruby-brown beer; clear burt for the very last of the bottle. Rich malty nose, with alcohol and something lactic, sweet spices and mild hops. Rich taste, alcoholic and cakey, with hops blending seamlessly in. If anything, more meaty than lactic in the mouth. Very good balance. Quite rich velvety MF, and feels more carbonated than it looks. Long warming aftertaste with alcohol-preserved orangequarts. Dangerously drinkable little bottle, dangerously likeable little nobleman, both very expensive... tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2010
Pours a clear amber to reddish. Almost no head. Smells like port, karamel, roasted malts and wood. Taste is immediately the roasted malts, which is quite surprisingly. Ends somewhat acidic with sweet hints. Aftertaste is complete hop bitterness and little acidic. bb (9657) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Bottle. 2009. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Rich malt and caramel aroma with light dried fruit. Malt and toffee/caramel flavor with dark fruit and light alcohol. Medium-plus bodied. malt/toffee and dried fruits linger with light alcohol.

Hazy brownish with a small slightly tan head.
Malt, malt, malt! Yes it was very malty both in the aroma and taste. The aroma also contained syrup, dried dark berries, raisins and caramel. The taste was sweet but not sugary, sticky, thick mouth feel. Aftertaste was long and contained some alcohol. A good Swedish Barley Wine gunnar (9326) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2015
