3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml green corked&caged bottle shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Bottle # 5758. Clear bright peach-rbuy, smallish off-white head. Booze, sweet, a bit earthy and vegetal - weird, harsh. Taste follows, yes sweet, but it comes together - very strong, fruity, pungently herbal - holy crap, so much better. Syrupy, slick, boozy, stingingly carbonated, quick finishing, boozy sweet and sweaty aftertaste. All over the map, but the taste was cool.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
27-JUL-2012, bottle @home from Ølbutikken.
Clear amber with tan head.
Barley wine aroma with caramel, flowers, orange peel, and alcohol.
Taste the same with additional notes of bitter hops and then a little "roast" but not nearly enough to make me think stout. Nice body. Too sweet. Finish a little hoppy bitter.
Fine experience. Nice try guys:-)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small white head doesn’t last. Clear amber body. Deep strawy
syrupy caramel aroma with dusty earthy fruity notes. Feels like
chocolate, too. Dry-sweet dusty earthy caramelly taste with
chocolatey fruity notes. Fullish body. Mostly mild. Dryish
dusty earthy strawy caramelly aftertaste with funky chocolatey
sherry notes. Nice, interesting, sippable, unusual. This beer
confuses me, but I enjoy it anyway. (0.375l bottle, wine
