Bottle @ buitenlust. Aroma has big bread and caramel with some fruity notes. Flavour is roasty caramel, fruits, some bready notes. Good stuff. MagnusTjader (32) - Mullsjö, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2013
Härlig flask storlek på en skön Barley. Kraftig, robust lite spritig men på ett mjuk sätt

Deep amber in colour with a slight-to-none head, sweetish malty aroma, smooth palate and a taste that balances nigh on perfectly between sweets, bitterness and booze. My favourite beer style, and a fine example of it to boot. fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2014
2011 Bottle courtesy of Alex. Thanks! Pours clear amber color with thin head that does not last. Aroma is butterscotch and caramel. Medium heavy mouthfeel. Flavor is pretty balanced and is butterscotch forward, followed by a nice caramel middle, and finishes with a mix of the two. This hides the alcohol well. Very nice.

Bottle at Akkurat shared with friends. Clear copper pour with thin white head. Aroma is really nice, rich toasted caramel malt notes, quite hoppy, leafy hop, nice sherry like aromas. Taste is rich and malty but not too sweet, really malt forward which I like, light bitterness, nice warming alcohol on the palate. Tasty barley wine.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Bronze pour with tiny lacings on top. Loads of dark dried fruits, figs, prunes, dates and raisins. Some tobacco, caramel and vanilla fudge as well. Good stuff! Gerbeer (3745) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2015 250 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Pours a dark red mahogany with light head. Big malty aromas, with brown sugar and caramel. Flavors are same, big, malty and smooth with still a bit of rough bitter hops. Nice. Pedro_Pinho (242) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2016 Pours copper colored liquid with a very thin off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel and some hops. Taste reflects the aroma, really nice barley wine. Good carbonation. It will taste even better in a few years!
