Very thick and rich barley wine, full of caramel, raisin and nut flavours as is expected with this type. Should actually score higher than it is right now. yespr (49519) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2017

Nice fizzy-creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet boozy, caramel malts, grass, minerals, hay, nuts, alcohol, almonds, raisins, bark, toast. Taste is slightly sweet mineraly, caramel malts, nuts, bark, minerals, booze, burnt toast, almond essence, grass, hay, raisins. Medium bitterness, slightly harsh boozy mouthfeel. Fair enough, but not really my cup of tea.
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2017 Slightly misty brown amber with tan head slowly resting into a thin layer. Aroma of dark roasted malts, caramel, toffee, rumcake, dried fruits like raisins and plum. Yummy!! Awesome taste of dried fruits, caramel and the dark malts. Lovely sweet back in the throat finish. Medium, leaning over to full body with carbo that touches perfection. Yes, great!! Compliments to the brewers!!! rodenbachvintage (216) - Roeselare, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2017
Goede, stevige Barley wine die ondanks zijn 11,8 graden vlot binnengaat.
Vooral smaken van gedroogde vruchten (zeer sterke rozijnensmaak), lichte karamel, licht bittere afdronk.

Tap @ De Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 15/09/17. Aroma is strong caramel, some dried fruit. Taste is strong caramel, some stone fruit, raisin. harrisoni (19876) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2017
On tap at Arendsnest Amsterdam. Sweet. But also hoppy. Modern style barley wine very hoppy on finsh. Jammy. Plum and grapefruit. Good varley wine. Full satisfying. Not too hot. Very impressive. Love the victoria plum flavour. Too notch. Plum jam. Really liked it. Had a Proustian rush to my mums homemade plum jam. Minus the hops obviously. EvNa (699) - Ede, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2017
Bottle. Color: Ruby, fast disappearing light brown head. Taste: Dark red fruit, raisins, hints of caramel, licorice, wood and earth. Bit boozy. Some sweetness at start, but soon going to more bitterness. Bit harsh, lacking balance.
