Hansen (8436) - Assentoft, - APR 8, 2012
Dark golden coloured and clear. Has a white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is malty, lactic acid, faint laqurice. Sweet flavor, nice creamy, long duration, moderate bitter finish. Soft carbonation.

Troebel bruinoranje, de kraag zakt snel weg tot een rand. Ruikt zoet, snoepgoed, fruit. Smaak is ook zoetig met een onaangenaam moutig randje. Ben verkouden dus misschien maar eens re- raten.

With an ABV of 10% one might expect a little more, but the overall taste is quite ok. Sweet, round, caramelly. Nice.

Kleurplaatje (135) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2016
Pours hazy brown with some yeasty flakes. No head. Malty aroma. Bit breadish, some porto as well. Bit toffee-like as well. Tastewise very sweet with a bitter and spicy oomph near the end. Some roasty tones that go well together with the toffeeish caramel... All is good, yet the alcohol kind of ruins it. It takes over pretty rude, erasing that nice, sweet and oomphy and spicy roasty caramel sweetness. Clear miss. Some more balance would have done far better. Bit light in texture and body as well. It is not bad, but it definitely has its clear misses.

Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer is amber/dark orange colored and has a stable broken white head, with enough carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with tones of dried fruits, raisins, caramel, roasted malts and candy sugar. The taste is full bodied and sweet, with a slight bitterness. But a little chemical and too much sugar in the taste. Notes from the aroma are well noticable. The finish is a little warming alcohol, sugar sweetness and a light bitterness which is long noticable.

Amber / koper kleur, crèmekleurige schuimkraag van 1 vinger hoog, deze zakt naar een laagje. Bij rondraaien mooi laagvorming langs het glas.... Aroma: Karamel, geroosterde mouten, krudig zelfs iets scherp en donker fruit. Smaak: Karamelmouten, suiker, kandij, siroop, iets kruidig en peper, een lichte hopbitter en een naprikkeling op de tong. Donker fruit en aardig wat alcohol warmte. CO2 is minimaal, body is aardig vol, alcohol behoorlijk merkbaar, mondgevoel is wat stroperig en de afdronk is zoet en plakkerig. Deze Barleywine / Strong Ale is gewoon te zoet en dat is zonde.

BenWesthof (196) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2016
Marketed as a barleywine. As with this breweries’ other (all biological) beers, this one is pretty sweet, which is something I don’t really enjoy in heavy beers/barleywines.

Dit amberkleurige bier heeft een snel wegtrekkende schuimlaag. De geur is die van geroosterde mout en honing. In de smaak zit rijp fruit, ahornsiroop en wat hout. Lekker.
