pantanap (3349) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2013
On tap at anchorage brewing. What’s this monster beer doing on tap at the end of the aisle of barrels?!... Pours a deep mahogany, mostly opaque, must dark brown hue... Rich toffee and caramel nose, dark fruits, raisins, molasses and a clear and present cognac barrel presence. Full and sweet, dessert-like and delectable... Flavors encompass a deep rooted toffee and caramel nougat focus that pair immediately with boozy fruit cake, dark fruit and the ilk. Barrel is smooth and cognac adds a mild sweet spirit aspect that meshes quite nicely. Full bodied, touch sticky with a lighter level of carbonation that matches naturally with the aformentioned... Really incredible all around. Excellent sipper to be enjoyed in small amounts.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Session 1. Pours dark amber with a creamy, yellow-beige head. Nose of caramel, dates, figs and toasted bread. Big sweet flavor with moderate bitter earth, leaves, rich and nicely toasted sugars, sweet bread, raisins and other ripe berries. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish (much, much less than you would expect given the ABV) with rich, darkened sugars, some bitter burnt toast, lots of ripe fruits. Great beer. One of the festival’s best.

Holmen1 (2272) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2013
Fra fat på CBC mai-13: barley wine er godterier for greie gutter, og denne er intet unntak. Brun ravfarge, klar og fin med beige skum. Så kommer aromaen opp og jeg greier ikke vente lenger. Barley wine lagret på cognacfat, ah so smooth. I toppsjiktet denne kvelden.
