blutt59 (6522) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2011
bottled, thanks to bu11zeye, another great beer from these guys with the lego people labels, dark amber color with soapy foam, aroma and flavor of french toast and honey comb, very floral and malty but not overbearing, almost mead like

MichaelAwesome (6486) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2015
Recht dick und ebenso stark mit angenehmer Trinkbarkeit, etwas an Wrze, einiges Frchten und einer gewissen Sure. Vollmundig, dem Alkohol durchaus zugetan und leicht getreidig. Dennoch belebend und befriedigend.

(330ml bottle, 2010 vintage thanks to bu11zeye - Rating #3300!) clearish orange with a creamy tan head. Nose of honey, sweet caramel, a bit floral, smells so delicious. Taste is toasty, tiny bit alcoholic, sweet caramel. Wish it tasted exactly like it smelled. Still very nice.

obguthr (5941) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Wicker, grain, subtle peanut hulls, and overripe orange nose. clear orange, medium head. a tad swee, overripe orange the predominate flavor with peanut skins toward the end. Finishes more bitter. a little hot on the back ewnd, but its a barleywine. Rustic and dirty.

mansquito (5766) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 330ml ($3): 2009 bottle. Pours a brownish murk with a small head. Aroma is boozy, sugary, malty, and cakish. Taste is slightly boozy. Rather sweet. Mouthfeel is much lighter than expected. This aint that good of a barley wine. The extra years didnt seem to mellow out the booze taste, but whatever, it was actually pretty easy to drink and that aint ever a bad thing.

33cl, Swedish brewery, from Slijterij van Bergen Eindhoven, complex brew, not too heavy, balanced, hazy, good head, good brew, yet very expensive!

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours clear yellow-orange with an off-white head. Nose is malt, sugar cubes, vanilla, citrus, some miscellaneous bitterness. Flavor has sugar, malt, caramel, and oversweet plums. Interesting barley wine. Somewhat syrupy and pretty nice.
