Bötetbarley wine is strong with its 9.1% but it hides it very well, try it atleast once. JorisPPattyn (10062) - BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2010
Small cream head, gone in secs over foxy-red beer. Grapey hops, light caramel, cake, resin, bit soapy, with a hint at cinnamon. Sweet, syrupy, caramely with bitterish-resiny touch in the finish, like grapefruitjuice, reduced with brown sugar. Viscous, oily on the lips, and a hint at astringency. Flavours coming together, however. Decent, very USA hopped-like Barley Wine. It seems to miss some body, but nips away nicely. larsga (7630) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2010
Medium offwhite head. Faintly hazy amber body. Malty caramelly roasty hoppy aroma with alcoholic sherry notes. Dry-sweet malty caramelly papery sherry taste with alcohol and apple notes. Light body. Hottish mouthfeel. Dry-sweet peppery resiny sherry and paper aftertaste. Very, very nice. (0.25l bottle, Systembolaget, Stockholm.) NoPiss (3) - SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2010 does not count

Pours a clear amber to reddish. Almost no head. Smells like port and orangepeals. Sweet-bitter taste with hints of honey. Ends bitter and slightly acidic. Touch of honey is still present. wkalle (263) - SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2010
Pours red copper with large and fluffy excellently lacing offwhite head. Malty aroma with figues and raisins. Sweet caramell with raisins and orange in flavor. Slightly bitter in finish but the sweetness dominates. A nice sipper. Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2010
Pours a hazy dark amber. Small tan head that fades to fine lace quickly. Aroma of caramel, malt, bit of hop.Taste of caramel, coffee,ripe fruit. Foamy mouth feel. Full body. Dry sweet bitter caramel dark fruit alcohol finish. Fairly well rounded. Pretty good brew. Joakgust (1476) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2010
Bottle, 25cl - Semi hazy red beer with a large creamy head. Aroma is malty with notes of dried fruits, raisins, vinous fruit and hops. Flavor is malty with notes of vinous fruit, dried figs and nuts. Slightly alcoholic ending but loads of potential here! LanceUppercut (139) - SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2010
A good swedish version of an english BW! The taste is not overly malty or hoppy, but has a lot of soil, plums, portwine and raisins in it. This one was fresh, and not the best BW I’ve had, but I have great hopes of it developing in a positive direction when cellared.
