Not sure I would personally class this as a Barley wine, but any way, still tastes pretty good. Very sweet, and very effervescent. Have some ageing in the cellar, and imagine this beer will be a lot better with some years on it.

Dark brown, cloudy. Small beige head. Aroma has dark sugar, malt and notes of dried fruit. Flavour is sweet with yeast, caramel and sugar. Slightly alcoholic. More like a quad than a barley wine.

DuffMan (10267) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2017
Little bottle (thankfully), shared with thephantomhennes and Doug and TvM. Deep orange-amber with a beige head. Sweet demerara sugar and estery yeast. Very sweet and simplistic with a boozy finish.

Tons of cereal malts in the nose, very strong. Mahogany color. Malty some what syrupy malty mouth feel. Meh

hawthorne00 (3900) - 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.

mcberko (17140) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2017
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.

3.2
VDuquerroux (1639) - 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.

Yves (3022) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2017
Shared with wim and Tim at bierfestival molen Oost. Brown colored beer with small white head and no carbonation. Malty mint aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is malty roasted mucca creamed.

3.6
buddybutch (97) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark amber, no head. Dark fruit, fruity, wood, sugar, alcohol. A bit bitter and dry finish => American barleywine

3.5
reebtogi (6235) - 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.
