3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at KØ-10. It pours a hazy, almost copper-colored body and a minimal-sized off-white head. Quite hoppy nose with lots of malts. Caramel, some meat and a touch of alcohol. Quite bitter flavor with meaty, sweet, caramel maltyness to balance it, finishing bitter, alcohol warming and sweet. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated. A quite pleasant barley wine, wouldn’t mind drinking more of this one. 100507

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A Mes rate. Draught at Brewpub København
Bright rich amber with a good beige head. Good looks. Good start. Aroma is fruit, cheese, smoke, leather and burnt toffee. Bloody brilliant. Flavour is more of the same but even better. Stunning creme brûlée sugary stuff and rich smoky malt topped of with just a delicate lick of tasty hoppage. This one really hit the spot for me. Bloody brilliant all round.
