Bottle courtesy of a kind soul at the Tampa Weekly Tasting. Pours a hazy yellow with an off-white head. Nose is peaty band-aid soaked in cigarette ashes. Flavor follows the nose with a hint of caramel. Medium in body and uber smokey for my tastes.

Flaske 330ml. Spandert av Rune og delt under en sesjon hos ham 5 Nov 15. Mørk amber. Middels høyt luftig skum. Spotlacing. Svak røykaroma. Hint av lær. Smaken litt tung. Mørke frukter etter hvert. Blir i søtligste laget.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska (Lotto 76). Grumlig bärnstensfärgad med smutsvitt skum. Dofter av karamell, blomster och malt. Rökigheten dominerar smaken, därtill karamell, malt och viss fruktighet. Rund och mjuk munkänsla.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.375l bottle from Lot 76, shared with The Tasting Crew. It has lots of eye-floaters this one, as good as clear looking red-amber colored with a bubbly and big sidesticking white head. Really smoky aroma. Not typical Barleywine nose really as it’s quite mild and a tad weird. Almost a little flourish as well. It’s soft, really soft on the bubbles this and it has a gliding oily mouthfeel. Again, light smoked in the taste with traces of dried fruits and red grapes. Quickly forgettable really. 19.02.2014

(Bottle) Dark amber colour, slightly hazy, with dense beige head. Fruity, slightly smoky nose with notes of dried fruit, rye bread, apricots, caramel and hints of smoke and peat. Malty, fruity taste with rye bread, apricots, dried fruit, candy sugar, peat and hints of smoked tea. Balanced spicy bitterness. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty ale with a gentle smoke character. Quite nice.
