maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is very malty with the characteristic dry wine elements of the style. Taste is just a tad sweet with the malty alcoholic backbone so often seen. Interesting, but not my favorite sort of brew.

nick76 (4403) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2012
The aroma is very sweet and alcoholic with dark fruit and caramel. The appearance is cloudy amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma and packs quite a punch both in alcohol and bitterness. The palate is average. Overall not one of my favorite barley wines but not bad.

Vignale (4124) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2013
Flaska från SB årgång 2010. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad, klar, inga jästrester, lågt skum som snart försvinner. Första doftintrycket är lagrad ost, sedan växer söta dofter av torkad frukt, sött vitt vin, sötlakrits och marsipan. Smaken har mycket sötlakrits, söta äpplen, dessertvin, marsipan och plommon. Lätt men markant beska och lite torrare avslutning. Ganska stiltypskt för en brittisk BW, fylligt med djup smakbild och riktigt gott.

3.8
hackobock (4073) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2014
September 15, 2014. Pours ruby red with a large frothy off-white head. Aroma is caramel, figs, apricots, grapes, light vegetal/green pepper notes. Taste is sweet with dried fruits, caramel, dark fruits. Finish is sweet with dried fruit and light grape notes. Smooth oily texture, medium to full bodied, soft carbonation.

Pours muddy brown with low off white head Almost vinuous port wine like aromas. Raisins, mud, dark berries Sweet and almost fermented. A lot of raisins some cherries. Low bitterness a bit abrupt endind but all in all highly enjoyable
