hawthorne00 (3820) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle. Deep brown with a beige cap. Aroma of dried and stewed fruit - raisins, greengages - toffee, dough. Full bodied, well towards syrupy. Taste is much the same as the aroma with some overt alcohol, mild spices and gentle bitterness creeping up to relieve the sweetness at the end. Were it a bit cleaner it would be a better barleywine but not necessarily a better beer. I liked the balance.

330mL bottle, pours a dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out considerable brown sugar and toffee upfront, with an unmistakable Belgian yeast component. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of toffee, caramel, brown sugar and Belgian yeast. Extremely malty, with absolutely no bitterness. Low carbonation that is fitting. Sweet, but not cloying. Not the most complex barley wine, but it is certainly well-constructed. Very good.

VDuquerroux (1559) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - MAR 14, 2017
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A very dark brown beer with a medium off-white foamy head ; medium retention ; ok lacing. Roast, toasty caramel, dried fruits, light herb, alcohol, sugar. Medium sweet, round, light warming with some fresh windy episodes, light dry bitter. Medium body, light to medium oily texture, average to soft carbonation ; toasty caramel finish, light warming background. Overall, correct ; too toasty, lack of body. Slightly disappointed.

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2017
330ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with caramel and yeasty notes. Taste is a dark fruity and caramel malty sweetness with a spicy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, there is more Belgian quadruple than barley wine characteristics in this brew, does not have the grainy feel that is prevalent in most barley wines. Still, this is a tasty brew and recommended.

murran (616) - - JAN 20, 2017
Pours a dark brown body with a thin beige head. Aroma of dried fruits. Taste is dominated by a plethora of malty tones of syrup, burnt candy and fruits. The taste is well balanced and the alcohol blends pretty well.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2017 Mooi donkerbruin bier met rode gloed en compacte crmekleurige schuimkraag die langzaamaan wegzakt. Fruitig aroma van kersen, aardbei, beetje nootachtig. Mooie volle smaak, licht stroperig. Tikkeltje zoet maar dat hoort bij een barley-wine. Smaken van confituur, amandelen, caramel, rood fruit. Licht plakkerig in de mond met warme afdronk. Prima barley-wine.
