Deep mahogany pour, small off white head. Mild sweet cherry aroma, with notes of candied fruits. Very sweet flavor, of cherry, dates, caramel, sugar, dates, prunes, booze. Interesting but too sweet and perhaps a bit thin.

GenkiGonzo (1091) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 27, 2016
Bottle from Bradleys. Best before 2026. Hazy copper with little head. Sour fruit aroma. Really smooth and fresh. Sweet fruit with a tart finish and nice hop profile. Spectacular barley wine.

ineedbeer (1983) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Poured from a 375 ml bottle with a 2024 best by date. Aroma is very malt forward with lots of caramel, toasted bread and hints of toffee. Some light honey notes. Some medium light hop notes that are woodsy and herbal. Light burnt sugar notes. Pours brown with some burnt amber hues and a medium sized, thick, tan head that recedes slowly to this edges where it lingers as a thin film. Medium light lacing and medium legs. Flavor is very sweet with lots of caramel, light toffee and burnt sugar. Light honey notes. Moderate raisin and dried stone fruit character. Medium to medium high bitterness with a light woodsy hop note. Light alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low, but present alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent barleywine. The sweetness is a bit too much, but the malt profile is nice and the hops and bitterness are fairly well balanced.

ShivanDragon (3664) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2016
schenkt bruin/rood met volle plakkerige licht bruine kraag. aroma van donker fruit, suiker, kandy, wijn, druif. Smaken zijn enorm zoet, rozijn, wijn/cognac, haver, mout, veel honing, jam, siroop, mega plakkerig, rood fruit, redelijk tot volle body maar komt vooral door de siroopachtige zoetigheid denk ik, desondanks smaakvol.

onceblind (8185) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Deep clear copper/amber with a large foamy and sticky ivory cap. Big sticky nose of deep Belgian candy sugar, apple, cherry, brown sugar and boozy phenols. Huge boozy flavor thats brown sugary, some candy sugar, stone fruit, subtle earthy bitterness, and more boozy phenols at the end with a earthy caramelly sweetness.
