330ml brown bottle. 2011 vintage. Pours deep brown, some ruby highlights. Small and thin tan cap. Nose is malty, raisiny, touch of brown sugar. Taste has dark chocolatey malt, slight fruity note, raisin, toffee, light roast. Finishes with some hop bitterness and a touch roast and chocolate. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Lots of rich malts, rather roasty for the style, but enjoyable.

Holmen1 (2791) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2014
Flaske delt med Ovesen: mørk rubin med fint beige skum. Noe blomsteraktig i aromaen, sammen med røstede nøtter/brente mandler. Deilig mørk, smak med rosiner, litt urter og ristet brød. Gode saker! Ingen barley wine etter mine begreper, og på flasken står det Traditional dark ale.
