3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Cloudy amber color, short head. Aroma of caramel and toffee, some piney hop, like a soft barley wine. In taste it’s medium sweet and medium bitter, but actually lacks a bit of both to be in the barley wine category for me. The alcohol is well hidden though. Not bad, just expected a bit more of everything.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy, orange-ish brown color, a malty, sweet, flowery bouquet and taste. Intensely sweet, andno hint of alcohol at all. Dangerous, had it not been so filling. Recommended.

If you want the definition of a Barley Wine you got to try this one. Little white head, dark brown and redish color. It tastes like very strong caramel combined with dried fruits. Maybe apricot, mango and dates. I can not taste the alcohol in this one, and it’s so easy to drink that it scares me ( if you think of the 13,2% ABV. ) Very nice barley wine.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with Veitafan at Flåmsbrygga. The colour is deep brownish orange and is hazy with a small beige coffee-like head. Sweet malt in the nose along with liqueur, cognac, alcohol, dark syrup and some rowanberries. The flavour is very compact with a composition of the same and feels pretty sweet with a touch of alcohol. Has a soft and rich mouthfeel. A great barley wine, nice and balanced. Good for cellaring.
