yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle. A hazy, dark amber colored beer with a dense, beige head of very moderate size. Its malty on the nose, with caramel and toffee, and a nice piney, resiny hoppyness. Alcohol, some dried fruits. The flavor is a bit dry I think, with bitterness, caramel sauce, resins and booze. Full body with some warmth and a nice carbonation. Long, piney, bitter finish with maltyness in the back. Quite decent this one, but far from a rave. 150808

Smalle (222) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2015
Murky brown color. Frustrating experience to peel the wax off (in tiny pieces) Aroma: typical barrel-aged aromas, caramel, dried fruit, oak, some vanilla: Taste: as youd expect from a barrel-aged barley wine: pretty sweet, a bit of oak and a sour touch in the finish. A bit wine-y.

77ships (8391) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2015
Courtesy of Kraddel. Thanks. Good sample from a 375 ml. bottle. Dark reddish brown, little mocha bubbles. Nose is oxidation, big sherry, herbal, oak, rotting wood vinous, Taste is oxidized, big sherry, old rotting wine oak, light whisky, herbal, glue, brown sugar, bit muted by oxidation, odd vinous quality, Oxidation evident in its body. Not sure if age worked in tis benefit. Good & interesting but not outspoken enough. Lovely packaging but the wax was very flimsy and cheap.

kraddel (6680) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2015
Pours clear, dark caramel coloured. good white head. Smell is rather sharp for a BW. Oak, wine ( ? ) aspects. Taste is bit sweet, barley-wine maltyness. Some wine-tannines as well as some wood. OK, bit less than expected but good nevertheless

Garrold (4498) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. Brewtique, Macclesfield. Hazy, reddy amber. Film of off white head. Fruity, boozy cake mix aroma. Some woody orange hop, too. Bit peachy. Fairly vibrant, for the style. Taste is fruity dry. Quite harsh, woody bitter. Palate is oily, and chewy. Lots of boozy warmth. Finishes fruity bitter. Slightly metallic. Not as smooth or full as I expected. All a bit woody, and dry, for me.
