Pours reddish dark brown slightly haze colour with creamy big head. Visualy low carbonation. Aroma with practically no presence of an alcohol, Prevail fruity aroma of dark fruits. Flavor: alcohol is mild noticable. Taste is firstly very sweet, with fruity notes (hints of dried dark fruits, with notes of caramel, biscuits...), finish is surprisingly bitter. Malt sweetness is high, hop bitterness is medium, body is soft - sticky, carbonation is low. Very onesided barley wine.

Pinball (11408) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2015
bottle from ølbutikken, clear red brown, small brown head. Nutty and malty aroma, slightly woody, not much hops, classic barley wine kind of aroma. Flavor is malts, faint dried dark fruits, quite a lot of woody bitterness, A little bit high on the alc, ’(7.2) but flavors almost manage.

TorbenJensen (515) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2015
Tally-Ho has a lovely aroma of fruit, oak and leather. Soft carbonation provides a thin creamy foam that hangs well on the side of the glass. The taste varies fine of dark dried fruits like raisins, prunes and dates. In the scale of fresh fruit taste to cherry, currant and apricot. Slightly burnt caramel malt gives it a great edge for its sweet tones and a slight hoppy bitterness pulls its delicious crunchy barley wine taste protracted. Towards the end you sense some warming alcohol, despite the fact that it is a barley wine at ’only’ 7.2 percent. In the aftertaste you will also find a little licorice. A very good barley wine,

rami_pl (495) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUN 19, 2015
Butelka, warka do 31 aug 16, ciemne, przejrzyste, z niewysoka niemal biala piana. aromaty glowne chlebowo-karmelowe, slodowe, gdzies w tle jakies trawiaste i orzechowe. Praktycznie w aromatach nie ma tej slodyczy charakterystycznej dla barley wine. w smaku rowniez pustawo, troche karmelu, troche orzechowosci, lekko slodkawe, z niska goryczka, generalnie mocno wodniste i bez wyrazu, ale zarazem bez zadnych wad konkretnych czy niepokojacych zapachow czy smakow. Takie leciutkie, bez zadnych specjalnych wrazen, okolice ziewania.

andreasnatanael (8) - - MAY 22, 2015 does not count
Flaske nydt i pint glas. 2014. MHT: 31-08-16. Moderat maltduft, hvor de søde noter er mest fremtrædende, såsom: karamel, kandis og chokolade, også moderat humle: citrus, appelsin og en smule gær. Dertil også noter af mørke bær og krydderier. Skumkronen er noget brusende og har en gennemsnitlig størrelse, den er råhvid og er mest aftagende og efterlade en sparsom skumkant. Kroppen er noget rubinrød i den mørke skala med få partikler. Smagen er startende moderat sødme, ingen surhed og en let bitterhed. Derefter tager sødmen til og bliver kraftig, men i fin balance med den tiltagende humle. Hele smagsoplevelsen har en længere varighed og er i god overenstemmelse med aromaen. Kroppen er medium i konsistens, med en olieret tekstur og en blød kulstyre. Alkoholen er moderat tilstede og bliver fint gemt i de mange smagsnuancer. Afslutningsvis er den lettere metallisk. En rigtig fin ”lettere” engelsk Barley Wine, som sikkert fint kan gemmes i mange år og blive mere fyldig og sødlig.

Lots of raisin, detectable hops, whiffs of chocolate cake. Big raisin flavors on the palate, great sweetness that is not cloying whatsoever. Lingers on the sides of your tongue and signs off with chocolate and some mild hops ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
