mcox90 (2072) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 18, 2015
22 oz. bottle, 2013 edition. Pours a slightly murky dark amber with a one finger white head that leaves decent lace. Aroma is heavy with dark fruits, sweet caramel malt and a good dose of booze. Sweet flavor is tempered by a healthy amount of earthy hops and, again, booze. Full bodied.

hman43 (1540) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2015
It pours a dark amber with a white head that produces a fair amount of lacing. It has aromas of dried fruits, plums, caramel, and bread malts. The initial flavors are a heavy plum flavor. There are also elements of vanilla, sweet dried fruits, and a not so bitter effect on the palate. There is a bit of higher than normal carbonation.

Bottle shared with daje & edvard at The "Esp0r #2000 Weekend in The Woods" 2014
Copper, clear, thin white head. Smell of dark fruits, plums, port, malts, oak and vanilla. Heavy sweet, malts all over the place, fruits from the malts, this is really malt heaven. Moderate to medium bitter, resin finish. Very nice

Gription79 (2886) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 28, 2015
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, vintage is 2012. Hazy brown with thin off white head. Strong alcohol notes, fruity, warming. The maltiness is pleasant, not overly sweet or sugary. There is still plenty of hop character to keep this interesting. I find this to be a nice barley wine.

3.5
joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 16, 2015
On tap at the First St. Alehouse. It pours a dark reddish orange color with an off white head. The aroma is sweet with mixed berries, caramel and a little brown sugar. The flavor is the same with lots of fruity berries, a little mango, papaya, brown sugar and caramel. Sweet and fruity. Pretty thick on the palate as well. Kinda simple, but not bad.

3.7
Bamsen78 (5335) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2015
Bottle @ Post-Easter Procrastination, Ulfborg. Pours hazy darkish amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of hops, touches of yeast and caramel. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with notes of vanilla and barrel and touches of hops. Sweetish aftertaste with bitterish notes. Well-balanced and pleasant.
