fiery_1 (696) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2017
750ml bottle @ Matts. Pours a cloudy dark orange with thin white head. Nose is like an american barleywine, funky, malty, with a hoppy note. Flavour is boozy hot, bitter, while you cant ignore the thick sweet body.

Oakes (16655) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2017
Has a dull amber, with no head. This has a papery yeast note, and then a light fruit note, Sweet, slightly stale, and with a fair amount of alcohol. Its just a mess, really.

mcberko (16268) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2017
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark peachy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a bit cardboardy, with toasted malt, subdued caramel and rice. Flavour is pretty hot, with phenols, caramel, and toasted bready malt. Fairly light body, with a harsh alcoholic heat on the finish. Not the most refined of the Goop series. Its decent.

Juks (226) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 9, 2017
From tap at Skuli, Reykjavik. Hazy reddish orange, small white head. Aroma is barley, raisins, bread, some vanilla, some acetone when cold. Taste is bready, hoppy, raisins, quite sweet, caramelly. Almost full bodied, well covered alco, medium carbo. The warmer the sweeter it gets, nice barleywine!

On tap at Vrteka 2016, Belgrade. Pours hazy dark orange, white head. Hoppy, tropical fruit, some pine, ripe fruit, apricot, quite sweet with lasting bitter finish. Full bodied, alcohol well hidden. DIPA meets barley wine. Liked it.

mariuspoenari (2096) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2017
On tap at Beertemple, Amsterdam. Semi-hazy orange pour with an off-white head. Notes of grains, brett bitterness and light funk, caramel, light spiciness. Might be an infected keg, but the touch of brett doesnt go bad together with the bareywine.

Alengrin (5006) - BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2016
Draught at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Very thick and creamy, egg-white, dense but regular head over a lightly hazy orange blonde beer. Aroma of passion fruit juice, green olive, marmelade, moldy orange peel, rice pudding (maybe autosuggestion), dank marihuana, damp cloth, green chili peppers, lychee. Lively fruity onset, lots of mango, passion fruit, orange and pineapple, sweetness accentuated by residual white sugar, softish carbo, thick and full, smooth, oily mouthfeel. Slick grainy body, bit biscuity, the slickness probably coming from the rice but no other outspoken rice features are apparent; dank, grapefruity, aromatic hop finish, spiciness of green chili somewhere, warming peppery and gin-like alcohol. Rice is often used as a cheap substitute in (especially Asian) standard lagers, but every now and then a craft brewer tries to make a great beer with it and this mission is surely accomplished here, though honestly the rice factor is hidden in the background and this beers overall profile is best described as triple IPA-like, though less agressively hoppy. Whatever it is: rich, complex and highly enjoyable brew for sure.

On tap at Chinaski Levapies, Madrid on 3-Dec-2016, and served in a snifter. Hazy orange amber colour with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of caramel, molasses and fruit. Full body and soft/medium carbonation. Sweet and fruity flavour, with toffee and a sugary sweetness. Big alcohol buzz.
