Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Light brown head. Sweetness, caramel, herbs and flowers in the aroma. Flavour is very distinct of cocoa and brown sugar. Is herbal and flowery. Distinct notes of alchol. Medium bodied. Has a light bitter caramel end. Nice. elektronikfagtekniker (891) - kbh, DENMARK - APR 25, 2007

From the 22oz bomber; this poured an orange-tinted amber with a thin but prominately standing cover of thin foam. Light sugary aroma. The sweet brown sugar (surprise?) flavor was mellow -- I’d never peg this for an almost 10% ABV beer. This drinks very easily, only slightly warming with a nice full but casual Barleywine-like burn, with a slight hoppy tingle to finish it. Good.

(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of sk8viking. Clear, amber golden with an off-white head. Sweetish aroma of caramel and overripe fruit. Full in body with sweet accents of caramel - somewhat medicinal. The finish is dry. 060407 barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2007
thanks to Styles for the bomber. lots and lotsa caramel in the nose on top of a brown pour with some lace. flavor is more caramel with some, not a lot, of brown shugga. also got some flavors of breakfast cereal. medium bodied and not a lot of carbonation. not as hoppy as a lot of BW’s, but very enjoyable nonetheless. chicagobears (474) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2007
Aromas of pine and citrus with cookie dough. I was surprised by the hop aroma for a "barely wine". A very good balance between brown sugga, caramel and hops. The alcohol is hardly noticeable. Finishes sticky sweet. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2007
12oz bottle-pours a retaining foamy light tan head that laces and dark copper color. Aroma is medium malt-sweet/caramel, hops. Taste is balanced medium malt-sweet/caramel, hops-bitterness which keeps the sweetness under control. Alcohol. A bit raw but nice.
