3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2014 bottle at Sip in Tallinn; BB 30.09.2016. Pours lightish brown but appears as very dark in the glass, with a ruby hint and surprisingly light, modest head. The aroma is difficult to pinpoint at first, I get notes of roasted malts, dark fruits, earth and fertilizer, and initially a metallic sidenote too... Not too appealing tbh. Tastes along the same lines, starting sugary sweet with a bit of fruity sweetness too, and continuing with earthy dryish bitter. Kinda dirty... Light, slick on the palate. Nearly no carb. Not what I’d consider a barley wine (as indicated not only here, but on the label as well), more like an old or traditional ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark colour, some standard lacing. Smells dark bread, plastics, pumpkin. Taste of low alcohol, light smokiness, dark bread, slight bitter. It is ok and holds its consistency. Supposed to be barley but comes across barley-rye ale combination.

Let karamel og en del fylde. Ikke så meget blomme i smagen som vi sommetider kan smage dem.

Semi-hazy deep red beer, small-ish tan head. Nose is toasty malts, caramel, sweetness, dried fruit. Flavor is caramel and dried fruit front and center with licorice notes and dried plums. Caramel and licorice plus almost roasty bitterness in the finish. Malt toastiness has a nice smoothness to it. Pretty tasty.
