@zebf 2014 - Golden, honeyed colour. Aroma is very fruity and malty - sweet. Initially it feels quite thick and lucious but it almost evaporates on the tongue. Dry finish with hints of bitter orange syrup. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2014

22oz bottle from the 3 floyds brewpub. Pours a clear gold with a large tan head. Sweet malt toffee and slight pine taste. Holds up well with some age. Aries (14) - Verona, ITALY - FEB 16, 2014
One of the best barleywine style that I have ever tasted. Girlfriend, father in law and mother-in-law says that we can repeat this experience. Delicious. Dfonorow (2250) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Pour is cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is of grapefruit, pine needles, caramel toffee, and dough. Flavor is similar but with more hop flavors coming through - citrus, orange peel, tropical fruits. A bit of spice lingers.

Pours true golden with a thick khaki head that sticks around. Nose involves super sweet cereal, spice, and some citrus. Really sweet, somewhat bitter. Thick body, soft carb, no alcohol burn at all, sticky, with lengthy bitter finish. Interesting brew, pushing a year old I believe. Haven’t had fresh, but the hops definitely faded from what I’m told, and the strange rice krispies malt thing dominates at this age. A decent brew, though I probably would’ve enjoyed it fresher. c0fein (660) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2014
650ml bottle from Bierkompass.de
Aroma of spices, apricot, dry fruits and some honey. Nice blond look with medium white head. Taste is fruity and good, not so zippy, alcohol is hidden. Good sourness and bitterness. Fine imperial ipa/barley wine. alexsdad06 (10640) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle shared by Tmoney99 (from notes). Pours a hazy golden orange color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor had caramel, with quite a bit of citrus, mango, tropical fruits, herbal notes, decent bitterness to the finish. This is a very hoppy barley wine that hides the abv between the sweetness and the hops. MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Orange pour hazy soapy white head limited lacing. Fruity aroma cereal tangerine Graham crackers. Full well coated palate. Sweet fruity taste a fair amount of cereal lightly bitter well balanced finishes with a touch of pine. Pretty good. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 24, 2013
0,75 l bottle as a gift.
Cloudy orange amber one with a medium cremy off white head that melts down to a nice lacing one. A megaton of hops behind the huge maltiness, honey and resin, grain and pine, marmelade with grape and grapefruit. The taste starts with a rich, oily bodied grain bomb but after the fruity and sweet grainy wave the hop cunami numbling your palate.Some dry, lurking sourish character makes the flavor more intensive.
