650ml bottle. Unclear dark amber color with off white head. Malty aroma, caramel, fruity, light hoppy. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft cabonation. Alengrin (5629) - BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2015
American English-style barley wine, from an older bottle at Delirium Hoppy Loft. Loose, yellowish beige, irregular head over an eventually murky, amberish hazelnut brown beer. Aroma of fresh, lightly moist rye bread, hazelnut paste, cashew nuts, brown rhum, candied figs, cornflakes, milk chocolate, marzipan, cognac, white pepper. Rich candied sweetness, marmelade, hazelnuts with a very subtle sourish edge, very soft carbo, vinous mouthfeel as it should be in a barley wine; the main part consists of deliciously thick caramelly malts, nutty with a chocolatey touch, balanced with a light spicy and leafy hop bitterness and warming, liqueurish alcohol. Very rich and warming BW. pivnizub (10766) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle( presumably filled by Abraham Lincoln himself…): Almost clear, ruby to copper coloured, stable medium-sized off-white head; dried fruits plus traces of almonds, caramel and leather in the moderate to solid sweet nose; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, not very full bodied; raisins and caramel in the relatively dry bitter-sweet finish. Easy drinking and well balanced…

Pours a dark brown colour with a slim head which dissipates quickly but leaves a light ring. The aroma is sweet caramel malt. the taste I notice a light light bitterness I think from the Chinook hops and a sweet alc. finish which is smooth John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle found randomly at a store this week from February 2013. Copper. Some oak, caramel, sweet, a touch of vanilla, some faint cherry. A little thin on the feel but, not too bad. Solid.

Bottle. Pours clear amber, with a small creamy offwhite head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, with grains and some alcohol. Flavour is sweet roasted malts, with grain, notes of wood and a hot sting of alcohol, as well as raisins and notes of something herbal caraway-ish.

650 ml bottle from Cervezalandia.es, Spain. Dark red color with beige head. Aroma is caramel, bread and vanilla. Taste is sweet with caramel, malts, vanilla, and something like vanilla ice-cream. Some milk notes too on the aftertaste. Full body with low carbonation. Very nice! Lilja (3461) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2015
Flaska från SB. 2011 vintage. Smak och doft av humle, karamell, honung, torkad frukt, russin, madeira. Rund och len, fruktig, fina smaker, stor sötma men som är välintegrerade med övriga smaker, välbalanserad helt enkelt. Vignale (3964) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2015
Flaska från SB. 2011 vintage. Relativt stiltypisk BW utan särskilt mycket humle. Stor söt kropp med stora djupa dofter och smaker. Karamell, honung, toffee, molass, söt torkad frukt, russin, madeira väl integrerade smaker och alkohol, komplex, känns nästan äldre än sina fyra år men har fortfarande mycket kraft. Riktigt gott.
