guzgorog (949) - FRANCE - DEC 7, 2017
Robe brune/marron, dense, mousse beige moyenne de bonne tenue. Nez de fruits secs, marron, noisette, raisin sec, léger caractère vineux, bois. La bouche est toujours sur ses saveurs de fruits secs : raisin, noisette, amande, le genre mélange pour apéro, quelques notes caramel et chocolat, un semblant de double belge. La longueur est bonne, la carbo aussi, belle complexité, corps moelleux. Un mélange entre une double et un vin d'orge très interessant, à déguster pas trop fraiche !

AssKicker (676) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - OCT 5, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2017 Couleur brune/rouille. Mousse beige qui tient bien. Nez vineux un peu acidulé, un peu caramel. Grosse rondeur en bouche, très liquoreuse, c'est épais ! Notes de toffee assez importante, tout comme la réglisse qui arrive en renfort, avec un peu de datte et de Madère. Pas mal sucré également. L'alcool fini également par se faire sentir. Assez bourrin pour un Barley Wine, ça sature assez vite. En fait ça se prétend d'inspiration anglaise, mais ça sonne surtout très belge...

3.2
jandorris (852) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 5, 2017
W aromacie rodzynki, figi, suszone śliwki, czekolada o dziwo. W smaku suszone ciemne owoce, palone słody. Na finiszu wyłazi taka dziwna przyprawowość. Jeszcze jakieś drożdże i alko po troszku.

ruuurd (320) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2017 Nice pour and what a delightful beer! Warm tones of caramel and plum, combined with slices; its a perfect beer for an autumn afternoon.

midovark (1091) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - AUG 28, 2017
0.33 l bottle @ home, from Beerlovers, Vienna. My first encounter with the style, so it’s a hundred percent subjective review.
Pours deep brown with persistent, beige head. Nose is fruits, chocolate, malty-grainy with hints of honey. Sweet in taste, with hints of chocolate, fruits and grains. Finishes with long lasting, warming sweetness. I quite liked it.

3.5
Ritzn (1890) - GERMANY - AUG 24, 2017
Clear brown with little beige head. Aroma is caramel phenols vanilla pudding maybe flan. Taste is bitter malt and some spices with some vanilla sweetness. Rather harsh. Not bad.
