I feel like a worm in a tequila barrel, drunk and happy that I'm here. Barley wines are the future, you heard it here first. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ar: Dark fruit, jam, marmalade, vanilla, alcohol, Brown sugar, extremely rich. Ap: Ruby colour, medium beige head. F: Boozy, although the bottle is two years old, it is noticable hot. Some roastiness dark Fruit and malts, jam, dark fruit and brown sugar. M: Full bodied soft bubbles. T: no doubt this will be great given time to soften the alcohol, right now the alcohol is too prominent.

SaintMatty (7228) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2012
330ml Bottle - Hazy copper with a small head. Marzipan, raisins, fruit cake, leather and malt in the aroma. Fruity, sweet and malty taste with notes of Christmas cake, spice, raisins, malt and nuts. Easy to drink, yet full of body. Its taste belies its ABV. I have another bottle of this in my ’cellar’ and look forward to seeing how it matures. It is certainly very enjoyable and impressive at this stage.

panacea (94) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
2012 vintage. Nose is almost nothing. Maybe some dried fruit sweetness but very subtle. Taste is lots of dried fruit, sweetness and some booze. Body is perfect for the style. Some nose and this beer would be perect.

alteregoo (1344) - Kalisz, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Pianka nieduża, szybko redukująca się do pierzynki. Barwa rubinowo czerwona, opalizująca. W aromacie sporo kontrastujących nutek - z jednej strony karmel, toffi i rodzynki, z drugiej kandyzowane owoce i przyprawy a z trzeciej czerwone wino, wiśnie i taniny. W smaku również wielowymiarowe, jest winogronowo daktylowa słodycz, jest likierowość, miód i toffi, jest kwaskowość porzeczek i wina, jest lekka pestkowo migdałowa goryczka, w posmakach cierpkość starej beczki, pikantność przypraw i kojarząca się z syropem na kaszel ziołowość. Alkohol rozgrzewający, ładnie ułożony, niskie do średniego, drobne wysycenie, pełne i lepkie, choć niegęste w odbiorze.
Złożone i ciekawe piwo, warte spróbowania, dla mnie odrobinę przeładowane i zbyt ziołowe, ale doceniam.
