@ Basunen 14-12-15: stor fruktig doft med framför allt banan. Smaken är något mer balanserad. Mycket fin fyllighet och balanserad hetta. En fin värmare.

(Bottle). Sweet scent of caramel, fruit, chewing gum and raisins. Taste of sweet raisins, fruit, malt and hops. Warm hints of alcohol in the finish, and also some hints of salty sea. A nice beer this one! A very good Barley Wine.

Beautiful colour. Already some sweetness and maltiness in the nose. Even more in the mouth. High alcohol, sweetness and maltiness, rich hopiness and finesse. Either you love it or not. Love it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
Metal, fruity and butterscotch on the nose. The taste of lightly fruity, butterscotch and bitterness. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Too bitter for my taste. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

A bit watery and with harsh taste after a few sips. A bit disappointing. The beer might have been a bit too cold.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber color with no head. Aroma of melons and caramel. Taste is rather weak, weird for Barley Wine. Mostly boozy, maybe a little bit of spices. Nothing very special for a Barley Wine.

Been looking forward to this grandfather of modern barley wine for a long time. It’s more than I expected. There’s lots of fruit in the aroma, both citrus and darker fruits. Sweet caramel, wood, vanilla, tobacco. Taste begins with sweetness but ends dry with a long bitterness. Complex but harsh. Would probably love this after a few years in the cellar.
