tomer (3655) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUN 25, 2017
At a tasting, thanks, smallish creamy head, cloudy very red to brown color, aroma of dark bread, melange of dried fruits and just an oxidised note, sweet and sour fruty honey flavor with some metal. quite sweet but not too heavy. Nice and drinkable.

matbli (430) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle vintage 2015 (9%), pours reddish-brown with high beige head.Aroma of caramel, raisins, dark fruits, dried plums. In taste mainly high sweetness with some very light cigarette ash in the finish. Medium bodied. Taste could be a bit more intensive but on the other hand it’s very good drinkable. Alcohol is slightly warming but not disturbing. All in all a quite expensive but still a good barley wine.

Tinco (621) - 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! :))

Szulo (178) - 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.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2017 Bottle at hopaholic. Deep reddish amberish copper colour head disappears immediately. Nose is sweetness light molasses, faint coffee. As it gets warmer the foffee nptes disappear and caramel takes its place. Taste is light sweetness, strong cane sugary notes. Strong, rich molasses. Caramel, burn sugars, raisins. Low carbonation smooth palate. Very nice and complex. A perfect dessert.
