Lowenbrau (4727) - Asturias, SPAIN - NOV 12, 2017
33cl bottle from Brasserie La Debauche, Angouleme, August 2017.
@home 12-11-2017.
BBD: 003-2022. Batch: Lot 087.
In short: bitter barley wine.
Pours hazy copper with frothy off white head. Moderate head retention, some good lacing. Roasty, biscuity, bready, ripe fruit, dry fruits, raisins, licorice nose. Full body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is malt forward, quite robust, boozy, palate warrmer, roasted malts, caramel, licorice, dry fruits, long warming aftertaste. Good.

Bottle, picked up in Paris. Great label. Nice thick dirty red brown pour, white foam. A big beer, sweet and spicy malts, quite a decent bitterness, booze coming through. A tad rough round the edges, maybe I could have let it sit for a while, but enjoyable.

(prodigieusement miel de sarrasin, spicey bittersweet onion jam, à 12° la barley slape !)

alteregoo (1738) - Kalisz, POLAND - OCT 25, 2017
Obfita, drobna i trwała piana, barwa miedziana, opalizująca. W aromacie dominują nuty miodowe, słodkie, kojarzące się z braggotem i miodem sztucznym, rodzynki i karmel daleko w tle. W smaku półsłodkie, co jest w opozycji do zapachu, miód oczywiście i tu na pierwszym planie, ale na równi z woskiem pszczelim, do tego suszone owoce, karmel, toffi... Goryczka średnia, zalegająca, orzechowo głogowa (świeże orzechy włoskie są też w aftertejsie). Niskie wysycenie, dość rzadkie, ładnie ułożony alkohol.
Trudno znaleźć jakieś info, ale piwo smakuje jakby dodano do niego taniego miodu wielokwiatowego w dużych ilościach. Polskie braggoty wypadają jednak dużo lepiej od tego...

Scopey (15663) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2017
Bottle at C&R Pre-GBBF Tasting 2017. It pours clear deep mahoaganny brown with a small beige head. The aroma is earthy, woody, toasted malt, bit of funk/dirt, must, Irn Bru and jam. The taste is slick, oily, bitter - sweet, juicy fruits, toasted grain, wood earth, toffee and stewed apple with a slick and warming finish. Medium+ body and fine carbonation. Pretty good fun.

MrTipple (6446) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2017
​Sweet grain and bread malts, caramel, dark molasses. Hazy brown, small, creamy, beige head. Light sweet. More sweet grain and caramel malts, molasses, soft carbonation, full bodied. Nice Barley Wine, rich and complex. Bottle at Chriso & Ruth’s pre-GBBF shindig, Kensal Rise.

ironcontra (450) - ATL, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2017
Honey aftertaste is the distinguishing feature from the BW mold, some lemon, bread, surprisingly carbonated for a BW (it’s even got some head!), the alco is nonetheless poorly hidden

jinroh (2270) - ESTONIA - AUG 6, 2017
Bottle shared at Chriso’s and Ruth pre GBBF shindig, August 5, 2017. Pours amber, quite clear .Grainy bitterish nose, rowans. Bread dough with rye. Taste is syrupy although not that sweet. Rye spices are quite strong. Overall bit harsh but can drink this.

3.4
erikaraeb (269) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2017
Sweet rye, grass, and almost some corn tortillas? Bitter finish. Medium bod, not too sweet, and very drinkable for a BW. Would not guess it’s 12% abv. Thin head sticks around with tiny bubbles.
