Habanero (3765) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear mahagony with a small off-white head. Aroma of ripe dried fruit, caramel, grapes spicy notes and wood amoung with a hint of vanilla. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with alcohol too. Medium to full bodied, oily to syrupy texture and soft to average carbonation. An excellent Barley.

Alengrin (4148) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
Barley wine matured on Malaga Moscatel barrels, with creamy, yellowish white, surprisingly stable head and hazy bronze colour. Utmost complex aroma with so many things going on: chocolate, grapes, kahlua, sage, oak, caramel, bitter honey, candi syrup, banana liqueur, cake, with everything in perfect balance. Fruity and citrussy onset, dryish with slick, vinous mouthfeel, caramel and honey, deeply malty, aromatic spicy hops in the finish with a woody accent and very agreeable, cognac-like warming alcohol. Complexity is one thing, managing to get all those flavours blend with each other is another. Alvinne succeeded in doing just that, so that I have no other choice but to rank this among the best barley wines I ever tasted. And I love barley wines, so...

bartlebier (3209) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
(backlog ZBF 04/2013) from the DSB/Alv. tap train. An amber sour clocking in at 13%, a worthy closer for Day1. Morbidly sweet plum and rotten peach made interesting by a suave velvet yeast, producing gorgeous rich lateral esters and practically no burn whatsoever. Impressive taste implosion in a category not quite my style.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2014
Sampled from tap@Haand Fest 2013. Deep orangey amber body. Low sand-colored head. Sourish vinous aroma with notes of dark dried fruits, currants and tart cherries. Medium to full body. Oily on the palate. Taste is nicely balanced dry/sweet, vinous and fruity. Alcohol warmth in lasting complex finish. Highly drinkable.

yngwie (16309) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2013
On tap at Haand Festival. Unclear body, dark amber in color and with a two-finger off-white head. The aroma is vinous, with alcohol, figs and raisins and some vinegar notes. The flavor has a decent bitterness, vinous alcohol and dark dried fruits. Bitter, lighlty sweetish finish. Full-bodied, dryish and with a nice carbonation level. Vinous, lasting finish. A quite pleasant one, showing how well barrel ageing can be done. 130525
