Harmonisk og tydelig oplevelse. Bourgognefadene trÃ¦nger tydeligt igennem i bÃ¥de duft og smag. Kunne fint gÃ¥ til juleanden!

This beer definitly succeeds as a barley wine. With its light touch of sour ale and its lively carbonation it doesnt become borring and too heavy

Plum, wine, wild yeast, liqorice. copper brown, compact taste of dark fruits, burnt sugar and red wine/cherries. Some freshness and sourness from the yeast and the carbonation keeps the alc vol and sweetness in check. One of the best barley wines I’ve had.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer has a warm dark red colour with a good foam head. The level of alcohol is making it the foam of the beer not easy to stay fixed on the beer.
The taste is warm and has a explosion of tastes in the mouth. It is a special warm long lasting beer a perfect combinations of tannins and hop bitter components.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared with Franky Boy to celebrate his new job! Unclear amber/brown with a medium quickly diminishing beige head and little lacing. Aroma is winey and tannic with dark fruits, caramel, raisins and oak. Taste is vinous too with dark fruits and very pleasant and intense warming finish. Heavy body. Vinous. Acidity from the oak. Wonderful complexity here. Rich. Great sipper. Nice warming presence, but no alcohol feeling. I love this.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lots of wine notes present due to the wine barrel aging. Not being a wine drinker, this is a little off-putting at first, but it gets better the more you savor the complexities fo this brew.Pours reddish/amber with thin off white head. Lots of active, fine carbonation. Sour, oak, apple cider are tastes that come to mind. This is a great beer, but takes some understanding of the styles and processes to appreciate.
