SeniorZozo (1841) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 15, 2015
Pours a red amber colour with a large, lacing head. Malty fudge aroma with notes of dried fruit, wood and marzipan. Flavour is fudge, red berries, red wine and wood. Bitter finish. Well balanced and warming.

4.5
worldbeertaste (1805) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Deep dark red with a thin, frothy, lacy, lasting off-white head. Smells of heavy malt, wood, caramel, cherry, marzipan, caramel, banana and gingerbread. Medium to full oily body. Taste is smooth and malt. Sweet with wood, grape, caramel biscuit. Little hint of alcohol on he finish that is bound to decline with age. Beautiful barley wine.

At FWIBF. Pours a dark red with a tan head. Aroma is of oak, toffee, brown sugar, and caramel malts. Some vanilla and toffee and some red wine alchool notes. A nice barrel aged barley wine..

At home shared with Dan. Small snifters. Pours a muddy brown with a slight head. Aroma is bread, sweet malts, cardboard, dark fruits, merlot grapes, barrel, and vanilla. The taste is bold with a solid barleywine backbone with caramel malts, vanilla, dark fruits, and booze. You also get the red wine grapes and barrel aging smoothness. Finish is wine flavors with a solid booziness. Very well balanced and flavorful. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation. I really like this.

ej (1322) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2015
bottle 2012 shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep orange / amber color with a tan, creamy looking head. Malty caramelly aroma and hints of alcohol. Some notes of oxidation and corn. Taste is woody and malty. Hints of leather and grapes. Oxidized notes as well. Full bodied, soft co2 and a slick mouthfeel. Warming finish.

3.3
brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Malty and piney aromas initially, supported by barrels that remind me more of white wine than red. Tastes like a standard American Barleywine: caramel malts atop the boozy, hoppy base with a warming sensation after I swallow. Barrel character works much better than expected, especially from an inconsistent renegade like Mikkeller. Pleasantly surprised to report that I enjoyed this one.

flemmingwillum (1198) - Nysted, DENMARK - APR 27, 2012
Rating #728, bottle from Toft Vin. Brown beer with a small and dissapearing head. Excellent aroma od vanilla, chocolate, coffee, cocoa, moisty wood and alcohol. Flavor of vanilla, hops, a touch of red wine, wood, smoke, citrus and it is quite dry as well. Finish is roasted and warming with a bit alcohol, smoke and wood. Nice bitternes. One of the most complex finishes Ive witnessed so far. Could be sweeter and less dry. Nice carbonation but could use just a notch of more sturdy body. Really great beer all in all, though.

tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Really enjoyable large sample. Nose is caramel and red wine notes, darker fruit bites with some cherry. Flavor is warming and rich, caramel and a smooth sweeter fruits, dark cherries and figgish... Its easy drinking and has a great finish.

BlazerT (1087) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 7, 2017
Beczka w tym piwie zmienia wszystko na plus. Słodkie, wyklejające, zero nut perfumowanych, ktre mi przeszkadzały w podstawowej wersji. Sporo suszonych owocw, nuty winno-taniczne gdzieś tam w tle, ale akurat w tym wypadku bez szału - wprowadzają lekko kwaskowaty charakter. Naprawdę solidna pozycja.
