3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nut brown and light hazy colour with an off white lasting head. Caramel and some fruity notes in the aroma. A fine toffee backround with some smoked notes. Also a bit fruity. Did go very well with some cheese. Not many smoked beer i fancy. But together with proper food, some are just perfect.
[Bottle from Systembolaget Hansacompagniet in Malmö, Sweden]

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2oz bottle at Maxs. Unfiltered deep brown. Big time massive peat smoke aroma. Aggressive, almost like a whiskey/scotch. Underlying honey, some mild zestiness, but overall this is pretty brutal. Unique, very unique.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Systembolaget in Nordby, Gothenburg. Pours a deep hazy, near-murky nut brown body with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma is nuts, biscuits, almonds and hints of rubber and caramel. Strange, but fairly OK. Taste is rubbery caramel tones, metallic grainy notes with toffee and hints of smoke and biscuits. A bit thin body-wise, with medium carbonation. Can’t really make up my mind about this one; it’s strange and original, but really that good to be honest. Style-wise, I had a hard time guessing but barley wine seems to be as good as anything.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Muddy brown colour. Dense head. Camp fire aroma with notes of yeast and fruit. Flavour is smoke, yeast, fruit, dough and a little bit of alcohol. Tastes more like an unfiltered weizen bock than a barley wine.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lite skum doft nästan lite veteöl aktig. Inget som minnar om en barley wine. Smaken är ganska rökig men annars tunn.
