PotjeBier (3026) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2012
On tap @ Beer Temple. Redbrown color, hazy. Dense, off white head. Aromas: wood, red wine, some sweetness, umami, some roast. Retronasal its mostly red wine & malty sweet. Flavor is dry (tannines), red wine, a bit sweet, a bit vinous sour. Alcohol is warming. Medium bodied. Long finish with red wine, dry, bit roasted, bitter. Barrel aging could have been a bit shorter...

yngwie (16874) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle, 375ml. A big, dense, off-white head leaves lacings as the hazy, dark amber beer leaves the glass. Wine, alcohol, wood, piney hops, some beef stock, caramel and dried fruits in the aroma. Lightly warming on the palate, full-bodied and softly carbonated, with some chocolate, as well as coffee, dried fruits and resiny, flour-ish hops. Alcohol too. Lasting finish with a nice bitterness. A pleasant one indeed, although a bit boozy in the flavor. 120905

Leighton (20524) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Keg at Craft Beer Co., London. Pours at first murky red-brown but it clears into a lovely, translucent ruby with a fine, off-white head. The nose holds aged malts, light caramel, berries, nice dark wood. big sweet flavor, good dry wood and vinous character, ripe berries, subtle alcohol, rich oak. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish, very dry with tons of dry wood, medium sweetness, well toasted malts, mild brown sugar and soft caramel. Great dry, vinous character throughout, not overly sweet. Great.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012
Location: Draft at Mission Dolores, 9/8/12

Aroma: Nose has strong booze and malt notes with some grape
Appearance: Pours a clearish dark caramel-orange color with a small beige head
Flavor: The taste has some sweet malts, some boozy flavors, light oak, and lightly tart
Palate: The body is fairly full and fairly hot, it has a soft carbonation, and a slightly hotter finish
Overall Impression: This one is really interesting and really boozy. Definitely a sipper. Im glad I tried it. I cant imagine drinking much more then a small glass of this one.

teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at CBC, London. It pours a mostly clear dark ruby/brown colour with a small beige head. Lasting foam. Aroma of sweet caramel, plums, figs, raisins and porto wine. Taste is similar: server with toffee, red fruits, bread and red wine. Body is medium with good carbonation. Overall, pretty outstanding barley wine.

Swaroga (2204) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 5, 2012
375cl bottle. Hazy dark red liquid with medium red tanned head. Nose : intensive deep notes of alcohol, red wine, chocolate, wood barrels, wedding cake. Sip : medium density body with thick oily texture. Almost no carbonation. Sweet and warming with alcohol. It develops dryness like a port wine does. Im surprised how the barrels go through this brew. They match well. Its still easy to drink for a barley wine. It does look more like a beer when we see the perfect head. I enjoy it.
