Bourbon, vanilla oak, caramel, malt and alcohol. Golden brown color. A bit too much alcohol in the finish but still one of my favorite barley wines!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at tasting. Aroma of vanilla and malt mostly. Taste has malt and raisin at first, followed by stingy bourbon vanilla, caramel and some booze. Nice, but a bit simple.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, very deep copper body with a quite small, beige head that leaves a decent amount of lacing. Sweet and quite strong aroma of caramel, hops and generic overripe fruits, and dark dried fruits in the back. Strong flavour that follows the aroma. The barrel ageing gives only very subtle hints of bourbon and wood. Rather heavy sweet taste and a heavy bitter finish. Vinous and pleasant mouthfeel, full body, smooth and syrupy texture, soft carbonation. A pleasant and gentle barley wine.
[50 cl bottle, batch 708, enjoyed 4 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge, Oslo]

50cl bottle shared. Pours dark cloudy amber with a minimal beige head. Sweet aroma with strong bourbon notes, caramel, butter, booze. Taste also is very sweet with bitter roasted notes, strong bourbon again, dried fruit. Surprising good amount of final bitterness perfectly balancing the initial sweetness. Full body, thick sweet mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste with bourbon notes,low carbonation. Excellent.
