oobawa (1492) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Runs closer to a dessert wine than a barley wine, thick and mildly carbonated and uber-sweet. Nose offers up thick caramel and wood, plus a sour lemon undercurrent that had me thinking wild yeast until I took a sip. Looks aren’t great, ruddy red-brown with no head or lace, but it’s 19.3% ABV. What do you expect? Taste is sweet, all sweet, sweet beyond sweet, honey and caramel and dried apricots and maraschino cherries and kirschwasser and a lingering boozy heat. Vanilla kicks in late, as does a mild oak backbone that adds a nice woodsy note to the sugar jamboree playing out on your palate. Eventually the sweetness becomes too much, too overbearing; it’s a good beer as long as you’re sharing the bottle with a couple friends, but a full pint for yourself is a bit much. Still, the texture dares you to find the wicked-high ABV, and the warm fuzziness it leaves behind might skew your rating a tenth or two.

DuffMan (10451) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle, shared with thephantomhennes. Golden amber with a creamy head. Fruity, golden syrup and apricot jam, prominent vinous notes, nice acidity in the finish. Boozy, but not at all unpleasant or harsh. After two in a row from this series, we were pretty boosted.

2.5
Koelschtrinker (20591) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 3, 2017
Stark hellholziger Beginn mit spürbarem Alkohol. Deutlich malzig, geringe Herbe, getrocknete Früchte, dann deutlich trockener und intensiv holzig. Unsüffig, primär wegen des Alkoholgehalts. 9/7/6/7/9/8

SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2016
Caramélisé et liquoreux, fruits comme dans tous les autres. Alcool bien intégré. À siroter comme on sirote une eau-de-vie.

Michael27 (2095) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 Aus der Flasche getrunken (Direktlieferung von Mikkeller aus dem Weihnachtskalender 2015). Ein Traum von einem (Imperial) Barley Wine. Kupfern mit weißem Schaum im Glas. Wuchtiger Körper, intensive Holznoten. Trotz des hohen Gehalts keine Spritigkeit.

j12601 (12622) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle at James’ cellar cleaning tasting. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Big caramel with a touch of wood. Big and sweet, medium bodied, warm and fruity. Incredibly smooth and fruity, warm but not boozy, which for 19% is impressive. Long sweet caramel and fruit into the finish, dries out a touch with some wood.
