TET (3031) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2014
A reddish brown beer with a medium and beige head. The nose is strongly caramelly malty, lots of balancing piney hops, dark fruits. Great, US-style aroma. Caramelly malts and piney hoppyness dominates the taste, some fruits. Not too sweet, surprisingly evem a quite dry. Quite simple taste but that’s working. Full bodied, low carbonation, slippery to drink. Positive, US-style barley wine with strong hoppyness, simple but balanced. spacecube (1717) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2014
330 ml bottle, pours dark amber, reddish brown with very small head. Wow, amazed by the aroma on this, comes across as a deeply caramel malt and piney double IPA in the nose, wow. Caramel and pine leading into a light resiny and piney finish that is well balanced. The barley wine textures come in after the initial hop flavour and the malt flavours are light and balance well. Great beer with a superb US character. McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle from Douberd - many, many thanks, Christos! I loved it! The beer pours out in a cloudy, dirty amber-golden-light brown colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of intense hops and barley. Taste of fresh, but unspicy hops, wild flowers, barley, white grapes, spruce and nuts. Hints of straw and caramel. A very big and great beer - highly enjoyable.

Bottle at home. Clear amber beer with a beige head. Fruity, citrus, raisins and caramel aroma. Fruity , toffee, raisins, bready flavour. Some herbal notes. A nice beer :-) Alengrin (5347) - BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2015
Dutch barley wine brewed in Belgium, tasted at Arendsnest. Thick, sticky, creamy, yellowish white head, hazy amber colour with copperish hue. Aroma of vanilla, almond, cognac, candi sugar, strawberry, treacle-waffle, wood, lime, red apple, orange. Sweetish taste with slight sourish accent, banana, candied orange, brown sugar but all in a concentrated, refined way, caramelly and honeyish malt sweetness in a vinous texture, smooth, with dry, woody, candied sweet and liqueurish finish, dried by peppery hops and whisky-like, warming but not too obnoxious alcohol. Warming, vinous, rich: this is how any good English-style barley wine ought to be. JLP86 (3) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 29, 2016 does not count
Van de tap in Proeflokaal Arendsnest. Ondoorzichtige en oranje kleur. Volle geur, smaakt zoetig en fruitig. Heerlijk complex bier. ruuurd (244) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2017 Wow! This beer is a combination of the two beers I love most; Triple and IPA! At first really subtle, but them the hop and other tones kick in! SimonBlok (589) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2016
