04 bottle, very nice ripe berry aroma almost reminds me of a very estery belgian dubble, no head brownish red body, very sweet - overpowering berry flavor riding on waves of a medicinal backbone, light on the tongue with a bit of off handed bittering at the end that doesnt compliment the flavor much, overall it isnt bad - when it was fresh the flavor were more pronounced and melded together - 6 months out.. the body has kind of fallen apart

Geen geweldige barleywine. Behoorlijk bitter, veel koolzuur. Tegenvaller...

2014 vintage. Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Aroma is sweet malt, grain, caramel, toffee, hoppy notes in the finish, touch of berries, caramelized sugar, alcohol. Flavour is sweet and moderate to medium hoppy bitter with a bittersweet finish. Quite boozy with alcohol burn. Body is above medium. Okay drinkable, but kind of rough harsh sugary malt boozy Barleywine, not my favourite.

2008. Burgundy pour. Very much passed its peak... if it ever had one. Nose is butter and corn, burnt caramel and toffee malts. Roasted nuts and toasted malts. Some sulfur coming out at the back. Dry finish. Full bodied and a bit skunky.

JPDIPSO (5865) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Umber color with a diminished taupe head. Sweet aromas of over ripe fruit, dark toffee and hints of citric zest. Sweet start with a mild resin middle. Simple, snifter and fire brew. 1/14

tomekboniek (570) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Butelka. Barwa ciemno miedziana, bursztynowa, klarowna. Brak piany. Aromat średnio intensywny. Duże nut estrowych ( jeżyny, wiśnie), pojawiaj się nuty karmelu, przypieczonego tostu. W smaku dominacja owocw. Spora goryczka, średnio zalegająca w postaci owocw. Alkohol dobrze ukryty, pojawia się dopiero pod koniec lekko drażniąc przełyk. Nasycenie średnie. Podsumowując BW, ktry nie porywa a w cenie o wiele niżej można raczyć się czymś zdecydowanie zacniejszym tj. Boommen&Granaten.

Ciemnobrązowe piwo pachnie słodkimi przejrzałymi owocami (wiśnie, jeżyny, maliny), karmelem i nutami chlebowymi. Słodowość jest duża, piwo gęste i pojawia się delikatny alkohol. Słodkie smak znajduje lekką goryczkową kontrę, jednak część jej pochodzi od alkoholu. No taki to styl. Jest ok.
