Travlr (25543) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle from Plainfield Hardware. Dark deep maroon, huge tan head, good retention for a barley wine, delicate lacing. Overall, a beautiful beer. Aroma of boozy caramel, pine sap and wood. Taste is butterscotch candy dipped in whiskey, with a biter pine finish. Nice.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of gn0sis. Pours an almost clear deep amber with a rough off-white head. Heavy perfumy hop aroma - yum. Solid body, some caramel, dark fruits, massive good aroma hops, woody. Very bitter finish. Incredibly delicious. 180311

Leighton (21853) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell, London during the Birthday Celebration of Jack & Leighton - thanks to Colin for this biggie. Pours clearish amber with a fine, tan cream head. Nose of sweet bread, toffee, rubbing alcohol and leaves. Big sweet flavor with toasty bread, earth, leaves and dry toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with sugary bread, mild earthy bitterness, leaves and caramel. Fair.

3.3
Theydon_Bois (20190) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle at Jack and Leighton’s Birthday Beeorama, one gathering dust in my stash, 13/04/13. Hazed dark chestnut brown with a thin light tan head. Nose is dark toffee fudge, dark fruits, grain, demerara sugar, syrup. Taste comprises dark malt, brown sugars, dark toffee, touch of booze. Full bodied with moderate carbonation, the finish carries a good kick’o’booze! Overall - drinkable but not a class act and glad to have split this with more than a few others. The alcohol was a bit too obvious in this one!

3.1
mcberko (18431) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours a murky reddish / orangey brown with a small beige head. Aroma of brown sugar, intense dry hops and heaps of caramel / toffee. Flavour is sort of a mess - toffee and loads of hops that seemed jammed in there without any design. Quite unrefined for a barley wine - maybe it’d do better with aging, but this just seems like a mess. Still fairly decent.

3.2
Scopey (15278) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2013
Bottle at Jack & Leighton’s birthday celebration, thanks to Colin. It pours deep red-brown with a small beige head. The nose is wood, varnish, pine, sweet toffee, honey and spice. The taste is wood, varnish, leather, alcohol, earth, rye bread and some bitterness with a very dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not much to it really. Not enough body and a bit too alcoholic, but ok.
