Sarlacc83 (2201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle. 2008 vintage from Corvallis Brewing Supply. A: Semi-clear reddish brown in color with a dark creme colored head and lacing. N: Toffee, marshmallow, pines, very earthy and dirty hop notes, toasted biscuit, woodiness, a hint of iron and oxidation - but not much. T: Quite sweet and surprisingly bitter given its age. Seems to be holding together pretty well, too - not breaking down at all. M: Medium heavy body, sticky, foamy carbonation, alcohol is there, but it doesnt have the usual Stone punch. O: Fine barleywine, especially with some age on it. Doesnt pull any punches, but its more restrained now than fresh - when I would give it a much lower score in all likelihood.

dodskenta (125) - Rnninge, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2015
This beer has a nice and clear copper color with a small off white head. Aroma has notes of caramel, sweet malts, bit of booze, toffee, grassy hops. Flavour goes the same and it goes hard, malty, toffee, bitter hops, bit boozy, a slight raisin flavour. Full bodied and with an oily texture, carbonation is not too big, enough to tickle your touge a tiny bit. This is a heavy barley wine, would probably benefit from sitting a year or so imo. Its really nice, although I prefer the english kind.
