Another 37.5CL from AFH. Thanks dude!!! split 4 ways at around cellar temp. no head. looks like raisin juice. smells nice. Old but certainly has the vanilla, raisin, brown sugar. Very thin on the carb, dense and oily. coats the tongue well. old mango, old apple, loads of brown sugar, a little bit of latex. would have liked to have a year prior.

375 ml Bottle from a trade. 2014 vintage. Murky brown in color. Weak carbonation level. Aroma of caramel, English toffee, raisins, sugar covered figs.

The flavor is right on... Tons of dark fruit, rich caramel, bitterness is shown stronger than I thought it would be at this age. Good balance, medium plus body.

weark (795) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - FEB 25, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2017 Bouteille achetée au PiBar, Garde 1 ans - De couleur brune presque noir avec une petite mousse fauve - Au nez, très malté, caramel, biscuit, pas mal de fruit, figue, prune, raisin sec, sucre (candy) et une pointe d?alcool à la fin, un nez puissant et complexe - En bouche on sent bien l?alcool, les malt sont toujours présent, une bonne amertume apparaît, puis les fruits sec, sucre (brun ou candy) et une pointe de réglisse, mais l?alcool domine - Corp puissant, amertume moyenne/forte, carbo légère, soyeuse et sucrée, final caramel figue amère assez longue - Aurait mérité encore un peu de garde pour atténuer un peu la sensation d?alcool

12.7oz capped bottle. Vintage 2014. Shared by beerbeggar. Surprisingly not old or big. It’s not astringent, it’s not "big" or anything bad. But it’s also not particularly anything, a barleywine with a little age but not offputting. Just doesn’t stand out but nothing bad. Dark amber brown color.

Maxbier (988) - Maryland, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Bottle from brewery. Medium brown pour with light molasses aroma. Dry molasses toffee with boozy middle and finish. Some bitterness too. Vanilla and some hints of Peaty smokiness. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McNeillR (2315) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2016
Big dark brown, soft murkiness and thin soft greyish brown ringed head. Nose is big Sultana bread and booziness. Initial taste is rich oaty bramble and a a trickle of dessert wine. Carbonation is flat and mouthfeel is thin enough, booze aside. Finishes quite bright, very winey but a swift bready currant linger. Flicks of booziness as it fades.
