3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours an almost clear reddish amber with an off-white head. Sweet caramel and pumpernickel in the nose. Medium body, nuts, pumpernickel and caramel with a good hop bite in the finish. Quite sophisticated. They may have used a Kölsch yeast for this, but clearly this is a Doppelbock - at least that’s what it tastes like! 020911

Hazy red-dark amber color. Chocolate aroma. Caramel flavor, quite good, not thick or sugary like a real Barley Wine, but pleasant; there is a light nutty touch; low bitterness. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big thanks to Koelschtrinker for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass dark, almost black, small head. Starts strong and malty, rusty, dry, a bit earthy. Warming finish, less dry, more spicy. Could be a bit more fiery for a Barley Wine, but still a great beer!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl. It’s a lighlty unclear brown beer with a small, off-white head. Quite alcoholic on the nose. with a nice hoppyness and some sugary maltyness. Sweet, bitter and quite alcohol warming in the mouth. Full-bodied, sweetish and warming. Well, not a world class Barley Wine, but it’s a quite nice one anyway. Could easily drink more of this. 110820
