Good! It is woodsey, mushroomy...but not too much so. After reading all of the reviews, I decided to change some things in order to avoid veggie mushiness and soupy barley:
1) Sauteed onions, garlic, & celery until onions are caramelized;
2) Added 1 cup barley (instead of 1/2), chicken broth (instead of veggie), mushrooms, chickpeas, and some spare spinach that I had on hand. I also tossed in some teriyaki sauce and cayenne pepper;
4) Simmered for 60 minutes before everything was at a texture that I like. I just kept tasting it every so often after 45 minutes until it was at a point that I liked.
