330 ml bottle at home - taken from notes (26/05/2011). Pours deep amber with a light beige head. Aroma of nuts (almonds), bread and malts... and lots of alcohol. Sweet taste, slight bitter finish. Not a big beer, but an enjoyable barley wine.

Very strong blond beer, almost like a blond version of a quadrupel. Yeasty, with fruits like raisin and grape. Weird beer, but nice.
