Sigmund (7539) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
650 ml bottle, vintage 2013, yellow label and wax, Limited Edition No. 11. ABV is 10.2%. Featuring X-431 hops. At Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Amber colour, large head, slightly off-white. Strong sweetish aroma, notes of caramelized orange marmalade, notes of molasses and some fresh oranges too, hints of oak. Rich flavour, sweet and malty as expected, but not cloying or sickening. Citrus fruit and caramel again, with distinct bittering hops in the finish and aftertaste. Warming mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

mjs (7413) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2015
(Bottle, 0.65 l - 2012 Vintage, 20150821) The beer poured deep copper coloured and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had raisins, pine and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, biscuits, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and quite intensely bitter. A brew with good aroma and disappointigly thin taste.

3.6
AirForceHops (7244) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 18, 2013
22oz. Bottle. Winooski Beverage Wear house. Almost clear amber color with thin white head. Nose is caramel, toffee and the hops that they speak of. (Bravo). Flavor is malt forward with hops an after thought. Molasses, honey, figs, brown sugar and some citrus hops to cut the sweetness. Overall for the price it is a nice Barley Wine.

2.7
PhillyCraft (7237) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle, coompliments of Joe with some friends. Pours a light orange red shade with white small head and barely any lacing. Notes of pine, syrupy honey, cherry, sugar, citrus hops, vanilla, and burnt toast. Light bodied for a barleywine. Nothing too memorable from this beer. Just ok.

3.5
VastActiv (7163) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle 0.665l (2012 Vintage) at Kitty’s, Helsinki. Colour is ruby copper with very small white head. Aromas and flavours: Pine, dark fruits, raisins, caramel, dryness, hops and malts. Aroma much better than flavour. Needs maltiness.

3.4
AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Great Alaska Beer And Barleywine Fest 2011. Foggy amber color/ ivory head. Nice marshmallow, apple, pit fruit, vanilla aromas. medium bodied. Sweet n’ spicy pit fruit, caramel, dark raison flavors, huge bitter hoppage/ alcohol twang to finish.

3.5
5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottle:   Deep amber, copper hued, large frothy sandy head, fairly nice lacing.   Somewhat of a green hoppy nose, malty, and alcohol.   Seems slightly green.   Very green up front, hoppy but not biting, malty, but not heavy.   Seems like a light example, very young, without much complexity.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Somewhat of a bright and young Barley Wine, hoppy but not too bitter, malty but not too heavy, with a citrus peel and pith background.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Nothing real special about this one other than it hides the 10.2% ABV really well.   I was thinking big English like Barley Wine, but what I got was pretty damn average.   Piss!!!!
