Translated from Dutch, on the painted label: "heavy beer, 12% ABV, from for long cellaring. Full, dark, aromatic. Now ready to drink, but around 2008 at its peak. Store cool and dark. Drinkable until eternity." English bottles: Exquisitely brewed by Browerij De Hemel - "Heaven" in Dutch - and gently accented with spices lovingly picked from the Garden of Eden. It is specially brewed to give pleasure for all Eternity. Keep it in your cellar as long as you can. It just gets better as time goes by.

Vestergaard (617) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a completely clear amber. Almost no head. Aroma prunes, sugar, dates, booze raisins, ryebread. Taste has lots of sweet caramel malts, the same overripe, dried fruits. So much date! Pretty high alcohol heat. Sweet beer with a fat, greasy body and no head.

RexTalionis (2791) - FINLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle. Unclear ruby amber with an off-white head. Sweet, dark fruityness and some butterscotch mixed with little bit of cookies in aroma. Some red berries too. Caramel sweetness, lots of vinous vibes and some dark ripe fruityness in taste. Bit of maltyness and even some bitters in the end.

Van de trap gedronken bij de Drie dorstige herten. Een behoorlijk zoete barleywine. Veel suiker. Niet echt mijn bier

Fles van 2010. Helder kastanjebruin. Kleine beige kraag die snel geheel verdwenen is. Aroma en smaak zijn super, zoals een barley wine moet ruiken en smaken, maar de body is wat dun en het koolzuurgehalte wat prikkelig, waardoor het een beetje overkomt als een frisdrank. Niettemin een mooi bier. Wel overgeprijst.

Drank from tap at Cafe Jos with Kaspar 16-10-2014. Nice barley wine. Compelling taste. Like a lesser version of De Molenís Barley Bomb: sweet taste with alcohol, followed by some bitterness in the aftertaste.

RW80 (979) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2014
33cl bottle - Really nice looking. Appearance: copper coloured beer with a ring of foam. Aroma: Light sweet. grains, caramel, port, raisins, and a bit odd but nice floral touch. Not powerfull but very refined. A very sweet aroma in which the hint of smoke, chocolate and alcohol meet each other. It tastes also very fruity and sweet, but this is very soon followed bij the aftertaste of bitter cacao, and remains for quite a while. Taste: Some sweet caramelised malts and grainy malts followed ,honey, spices, a lot of nice floral, vegetable notes (Especially when you si it.)- Light bitter atertaste. medium body,sot carbonation, easy drinkable for itís style. Quite good and better as the Standard nieuw ligt with the extra complexity.
