omhper (24980) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2005
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival. Hazy amber. Intense graefruit aroma. Sweet, peachy and very malty with soft mouthfeel. Both very hop aromatic and malt accented. Gentle, yet powerful. Well balanced, and really enjoyable!

SanfordBrewer (1574) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Hazy golden orange with a thin but enduring beige head. Syrupy full body with high carbonation.

Aroma: a ton of pale malt, a touch of chocolate malt, german noble hops, hints of toffee and piney american hops.

Taste: lots of pale malt, aromatic malts, fruity ale esters, toffee, caramel, citrusy hops, butter, and alcohol.

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.

Szulo (137) - Płock, POLAND - MAR 13, 2017
Piana drobna, gęsta, pozostaje wraz z piciem mała warstewka. Barwa rubinowa, opalizująca. Aromat bogaty słodycz, melasa, miód, daktyle, rodzynki, figi. Jeden łyk wystarczy żeby wykleić podniebienie. Alkoholu nie czuć w ogóle.

4.2
screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2007
Orange body and a tan on the head. Aroma: Vanilla, nuts, hazel-nut and wood. Flavor: malty, seet, nuts and milky round. Strong mouthfeel. Some alcoholflavor goes through.

4.2
Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2008
courtesy of Per - cloudy copper-red colour with a little beige foam; robust aroma of nuts, wood and licorice; sweet and full-bodied, sticky, very bitter; long caramelish and nutty aftertaste - solid and very pleasant

4.2
MaartenRF10 (1949) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2012
Dark copper colour, nice lasting beige head. Aroma is typically barley wine. Taste is dark fruit, some spices, wood notes, hint of vanilla, sweet with some bitterness, some alcohol. Good full body and relatively high carbonated for a barley wine, not too high though.

4.2
Lore (2671) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 1, 2017
brown colour, minimal sized beige-ish head; aroma and taste of dried plum, dates maybe apricot and raisins soaked in cognac, walnut, some chocolate and herbal liqueur notes; great barley wine!

4.2
Tinco (617) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2017
Bottle from 2009, 11.5% ABV. Pours a clear dark golden, red liquid with a brown head that disappears quite quickly. Aroma is of berries, caramel, dark sugars, molasses, sweet raisins. Taste is sweet, round alcohol, rich caramel and malty feel. Complex caramel sugars. Still good amount of small round carbonation bubbles. Really nice! :))
