VamboladeTolly (1655) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 12, 2016
Bottle @ mogala3 festival, Vilnius. Pours hazy amber with yellow head. Aroma: hay, caramel, dead hops. Taste: caramel, sweetish, dead hops, hay. Medium + body. Not mine kind of beer.

Panzerfaust (819) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAR 24, 2016
750ml bottle from Gallaghers Beer World/El Irlands. Pours a hazy reddish orange color with a small but thick creamy head that lingers. Aroma is intensely fruity but relatively simple. Mango, peach, pommegranate and grapefruit dominate throughout. Maybe a bit of sweet citrus and little malt presence. Taste continues the fruity sweetness but adds a bitter feeling towards the end. The flavors remain within the tropical fruit and sweet citrus comfy zone but theres a bitter hint thats not completely refined. Alcohol well integrated, medium to big body. Smooth. Neither super-intense nor extremely-complex. Just a competent hoppy and well-made Barley Wine.

nickd717 (4285) - Sofia, BULGARIA - MAR 18, 2016
Bottle pours a hazy copper color with a large, lasting, lacy light beige head. The aroma is caramel sugar, toffee, buckwheat, and grapefruit. Sweet sugary caramel malt flavor. Finishes with moderate bitterness - citrus and herbal notes. Medium-full bodied, somewhat syrupy. Hides the booze decently well. A bit overrated, but good.

mgajdaczewa (1785) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 17, 2016
W aromacie owocowe, dojrzałe tropiki, żłte owoce, wyrazista baza słodowa idąca w stronę biszkoptw, sugestia lekkiej wanilii, lekkie utlenienie, ale generalnie bardzo przyjemny. W smaku raczej wytrawne jak na styl, dobrze ukryty alkohol, biszkoptowo - owocowe, ponownie te niezidentyfikowane żłte owoce, ale na niskim poziomie soczystości, utlenieniowa ice tea, goryczka podwyższona, nieco gryząca, ciut popiołowa. W smaku niewiele się dzieje, ładnie pachnie, generalnie plus.

Patrickctenchi (6192) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle: Slightly cloudy, dark orange-brown with a small off-white head. Caramel malt, buckwheat, wood/bark aroma. Taste is quite woody....caramel malt, mild citrus,.....sort of an oily bitter. A lot of malt...pretty easy drinking for the ABV. Left me feeling a little dry and thirsty, strangely.... Not bad, but nothing more.

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
750ml bottle served in a snifter. Pours deep orange with a huge white head with good lacing and minimal carbonation. Extremely powerful hop aroma and the taste is very clean and grassy with a nice but not excessive sweetness from the malt. Definitely more hoppy than malty and extremely well balanced. Delicious.

shrubber85 (10879) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle. Earthy lemon, buckwheat, malt, and grapefruit peel aroma. Amber with large off-white head. Sweet earthy citrus, biscuit malt, and moderately strong bitter herbal lemon peel flavor. Good body. Was hidden in the back of my fridge for a couple years - dont think aging was a great idea here.

alex_leit (2829) - Minsk, BELARUS - FEB 18, 2016
Bottle. Yellow amber color with good foam. Aroma of strong malt beer, nectar and fruit, citrus hops. Taste: butterscotch, candy, buckwheat, wine, white port. Excellent

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Light cloudy orange color with a foam layer. Oily and light alcoholic nose with a surprising dominant amount of hoppy flavors. The taste is oily, creamy with a strong malty sweet character and a light alcoholic finish with a dry aftertaste.
