tiong (7754) - Espoo, - OCT 5, 2012
Draught @ SBWF’12

Pours dark orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of ripe fruits, wood, malts, vanilla, oak and hops. Taste is rxtremely fruity with notes of wood, oak, vanilla, bourbon and syrup, hints of sourness and tart fruits. Sweet, sugary finish with hints of vanilla, wood and oak, hints of tartness. Okay, a bit too sweet for my taste.

Palme (4857) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. This is a blurry honey colored one with a small sidesticking off-white head. It has some sweetness, caramel and grass on the aroma. Light pungent hoppy and yeasty on the flavor. A bit disturbing actually, but it smooths itself out after a while. A bit to grassy imo and it’s really mouthdrying and astringent. Nowhere near the original Doggie Claws, but not bad. 12.05.2012

sunevdj (4144) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 25, 2016
On tap at CBC 2012. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Sweet with a moderate bitterness and a light sourness. Hints of sour milk. Aromas of grains with hints of hay. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish.

daje (4548) - NORWAY - MAR 18, 2016
On tap at Het Oude Schooltje - Struise Brouwers @ The Old School, march 14th 2015. Dark yellow body with a medium white head. Fruity aroma with vanilla and peach. Taste of marmelade, bourbon, spicy hops, chocolate and a mild alcohol burn. Rough sweetness, a nice experimental blend but becomes a bit unbalanced towards the barley wine.

Renobob (2064) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 2, 2016
Bue à la pression. Nez neutre. Palais léger, peu d'arôme, pointe de caramel. Couleur caramel

freretoc (1935) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 23, 2015
Bue à la pression en 12cl à l’école d’Oostvleteren. Couleur ambrée pas de mousse ni d’effervescence. Nez vanille. Bouche sur la vanille et le malt continuité sur le caramel.

jfb (6984) - GERMANY - APR 30, 2015
(draught) slightly hazy amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of cherry stones, brown sugar and nettles, with a light hint of acetone, yeast and pale malts. flavour is mostly nettles, herbal hops and coconut, with a touch of caramel, some lemons, bubble gum and a rather dry medium-bitter finish.

markextrae (4604) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2015
sample from draft at ZBF 15, poured a light amber colour with a slight off head. first notice of sour tart fruits that i didn’t expect. grapefruit, lime, tart, pineapple, brett, slight hint of oak, juicy slight tart aftertate. can’t detect any bourbon, I think that a white wine barrel would be a lot better for this beer. but overall it’s still very enjoyable

Hamirubi (595) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2015
10cl sample at the Zythos Beer Festival (Leuven, April 25th 2015). A very sour, very spiritful amber coloured barley wine. This brew however is not unpleasant. The sourness reminds of vinegar - think of pickled gherkins -, the aroma is that of a nicely blended gueuze, the taste balances between sugary sweet and posca sour.

ippopotamo36 (2628) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 19, 2015
On tap at Alvinne Craft Beer Fest in Vichte - Belgium March 2015 with markoijelena. Pours amber hazy, off-white cap with traces on the surface. Nose: light caramel, white chocolate and a hoppy background. Also some tart sour notes in the nose (cool). Mouth: high carbonation, tart and clear on the palate, pungent in a way, malts juice with a sour and clean aftertaste. Good beer!

JefVerstraete (3752) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2015
@ ACBF 2015. Amber colour. Medium carbonation. Sweet malty with sour tart notes. Some lactose. Also vanilla and bourbon. Very well balanced. Good!
