Marheb (5426) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Sirupeux avec un caractre vineux assez discret, mme les tanins se fondent harmonieusement, peut-tre trop, jaurais aim vivre le vin travers la bire. Les sucres sont modrs entre cassonade, pure de dattes et caramel. Agrable dgustation.

Holmen1 (5361) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2013
Fra fat p Cardinaltreff feb-13, kveldens siste av totalt 16: uklar og mrekbrun med beige skum. Det er tydelig allerede i aromaen at rdvinsfatene har gjort sitt, den er preget av bde rdvin og eikefat. Men heldigvis er humlen fremdeles til stede, og vitamininnholdet setter seg der det skal.

markwise (5349) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours hazy dark brown with a tanish/ khaki head. Nose is malt, wood, red wine (maybe a sweet cab sav?), vanilla, oak, and a vinous character that pervades the front and back, and some abrasive hop character. Flavor is caramel briefly in the front, followed quickly by oak and vinous character, dry cab, then abrasive bitterness and a dry finish. Enigmatic barley wine that borders on enjoyable.

Alengrin (4897) - BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2015
Two year old bottle at Kulminator. Moussy, lacing, pale greyish white head, stable, residing over a hazy coppery amber beer with brownish hue, darker than the regular version. Strong and pleasant aroma, oxidized malts but not overpowering the other odours of cranberry, sherry, red wine, wet wood, honey, caramel, vanilla-like tannins, chocolate sauce, marmelade, venison, white pepper. Candied cherry sweetness in onset, figs, light cranberry tartness, soft carbo, honeyish, big caramelly malt sweetness, vinous and oily mouthfeel, drying finish with wood drought and tannins (very strong), warming whisky-like alcohol, soft hop bitterishness deep down, and an unmistakable red wine flavour afterwards. The tart, drying effect of the red wine barrels has brought considerable balance to an otherwise perhaps overly sweet barley wine.

27-APR-2012, bottle @home, from "lbutikken". Red/amber with lasting beige head that laces. Nose is tart almost sour-like with oaky notes, alcohol, red wine, berries. Very dry. Taste is much the same. Not much big worse lesft. Dry, red Wine like and fantastic. Lovely. Even more so n warming.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle @ tasting. Hazy reddish pour, huge off-white head. Aroma is full spicy nuts, creamy and slightly fruity. Really well balanced. Thick body, bitter spicy flavor. Great brew.
