Hazy deep amber beer, good cream coloured head. Palate is soft with prickly fine carbonation. Toffee and a little wood. Mild dried fruits. A little lacto. Quite a dry finish.

Bartos (2) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2012 does not count
Aroma: Alcohol notes overpower the aroma of toasted malts Appearance: A cloudy deep amber that is practically dark brown Taste: Starts medium sweetness with toffee and malt. Subtle hoppy bitterness and ends with a strong alcohol aftertaste. Palate: Warming finish but too strong an alcohol taste to be smooth. Overall: An interesting collaboration and a better modern take on the Barleywine. Lacks the sophistication expected from these two breweries. Exhibits Cigar City’s mainstays of high alcohol content and assertive hops but fails to balance with a taste that can stand up.

thewolf (11383) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Tap @ CBC, 2012.
Pours deep chestnut with a small, creamy, beige film head. Aroma has lots of sweetness, caramel, chestnuts, hazel and fairly vinious. Milky chocolate. Medium carbonation, nice fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is very sweet, vinious, more hazelnuts, caramel. Quite strong alcohol presence. But a nice BW nonetheless.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2012 On tap. Pours a dark cloudy orangey brown with an off-white head. Very boozy nose with the alcohol overpowering pretty much anything else. Medium-bodied, sticky toffee and biscuits and nothing much else really. Hot boozy in the finish, really lacks some complexity to be truly enjoyable. 120512
