Zlotta (3193) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Clear, dark amber with a white layer. Sweetish, malty, slightly oxidized and a bit boozy aroma of molasses, caramel, raisins and vanilla. Sweetish, quite malty and slightly oxidized taste of caramel, molasses, some coffee, a touch of raisins and some vanilla, followed by a long, slightly bitter, rather warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay, but very disappointing.

Koelschtrinker (20216) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Malzig pappiger Geruch. Keine Karbonisierung. Wässrig getreidig malziger Antrunk. Erkennbarer Alkohol. Kurzzeitig würzig, dann wieder wässrig. Belanglos. 7/8/7/6/9/6

tmoreau (4295) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle poured to a snifter showing a hazed, mahogany color, with a modest layer of bubbly, tan foam, with both foamy & leggy spots on the glass. The nose was alcohol at the ready, dried fruit, chocolate, caramel sweetness, and subtle spice. Medium bodied, the taste was similar, with added notes of treacle, noticeable alcohol, some earthy bitterness, and carbonation that was low enough to flatten out the texture to a syrupy finish. Kind of dragged the total experience down.

SkillsFactory (739) - ITALY - SEP 17, 2016
Ambrata carica o tonaca di frate chiara, velata, schiuma beige di ottima persistenza. Aroma agrumato, erbaceo, foglie di tè, biscottata, arancia candita, zucchero di canna. Al palato nocciola, caramello, biscotto, scorza d’arancia, finale amaro erbaceo, tè, frumento e caffè tostato. Corpo pieno, poco carbonata.

neongolden (1607) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
(375ml bottle sample @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Sep 1 2016) Pours fairly clear pale reddish-brown with a huge pile of off white head. Aroma of burnt sugar, toasted grains, nuts, sweet darker malts, touches of dark fruit and citrus, bittering hops. Flavour is reasonably sweet but counteracted by rather hefty bitterness, toasted grains and toffee, candied orange, a bit of dark fruit, slight breadiness to the malt, nuttiness. Finish is rather dry and bitter with more toasted grain, some bittering hops, slight citrus peel, a bit of alcohol heat. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Quite decent barley wine, nothing really stuck out for me though.

ZodiacM (1140) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2016
Uit de fles geschonken. Mooi rood-bruin bier met mooie schuimkraag. Aromas van barley, caramel en hop. Smaak is zoet, bitter, tonen van barley, hop, mout, wat citrus-zest. Een mooie barley, smaakvol.

Samuel214 (1084) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2016
Flaska på Örebro Ölcafé. Vintage 2011, ca 8 månader efter bäst före-datum. Mörk brunröd vätska med krämbeiget skum. Stor, fyllig men samtidigt dov doft av kandisocker, smörkola, torkad frukt a la fikon och dadlar, portvin, inlagda körsbär, madeira och kanske lite konjak. Kropp åt det något större hållet. Relativt len och med en värmande alkoholton. Nära doften i smaken med mycket smörkola och en bärighet från inlagda körsbär och fikonsylt. Fortfarande beska kvar i avslutningen. Åldern på ölen märks av tydligt, med en typisk mer matt smakbild som går djupare och låter smakerna ligga kvar längre. Med andra ord har det gjort den väl.

jaghana (6014) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle 37,5, a copper amber beer with medium creamy head. Nose is on barley sugar, grain, almond, blond caramel. Aroma is on toasted grain, sugar, toasted caramel, orange, bit monodimensional, light chocolate. Unfortunately very less interesting that the big worst worser !

IOzh (159) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - JUL 15, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours deep brown with small off-white head. Aroma of raisins, citrus, caramel, malts, pines, dark fruits, spices and a hint of something sour. Medium body with low carbonation. Balanced bittersweet taste with mild presence of alcohol and bitter finish. Very nice.

Zekso (30) - POLAND - JUL 10, 2016
klasyczne American Barley Wine, aromat chmielowo landrynkowy, smak słodowo miodowy, w smaku duża ilość chmielu, przyjemne, przyzwoite piwo
