3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske (gave fra Mike) delt med Leiv og Ovesen mai-13: meget interessant med en juleøl 2007-årgang (mindst holdbar til okt-12), her må man dekantere forsiktig for å unngå klumpete, geleaktig bunnfall. Smaksmessig bærer den sin alder med eleganse, fylde og verdighet. Inspirerer til å oppsøke andre årganger!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 50 cl, courtesy of Papsø. Unclear brown with a small beige head. Spicy and malty aroma of cinnamon, licorice, caramel and plums. Sweet, sticky and port-like with an almost dusty, rather dry finish. Hops has disappeared. Quite complex - might be "over the top", but still absolute drinkable, albeit I would prefer to do so in small quantities.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 50cl from Papsoe thanks a lot, a dark beer with good head and lacing. Nose is vinous, brown malt and spicy, very pleasant. Aroma is caramel and chocolate like, creamy, dense body, some oude bruin notes, a bit port like, sweet, licorice, oak, a very nice beer. Long dark chocolate finish.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from the brewery. Batch 57. Black-bodied with little to no head but lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma of burnt caramel albeit with a tone of malty bread. Taste is mostly dark sweetness on the tongue. Flat medium-bodied with an oily texture and a somewhat bitter finish. In my view this beer didn’t age too well - at least compared to the Brøckhouse of the same vintage.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle, batch nr. 57, bought at Barley Wine in Copenhagen earlier this year (March). Fawn coloured head slowly fading over a deep, dark, rosewood body. Short-lived lacework on the glassware. Earthy malts to the nose added by a spiced chocolate touch. Flavour matches the aroma with chocolate malts, candy sweetness, orange hops and bittering spices towards the ending. Fine yuletide feel (Tromsø, 27.12.2010).
