COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of fruit like orange, tangerine and sweet apples. It’s powerful and full bodied but still easy going. Although the name would suggest otherwise, it’s our favourite amongst the female clientele yet also highly appreciated by the other sex. Well hopped as always, but the obvious alcohol and the massive malt and fruit character restrict the hops to the background, only to reveal itself in the finish. Full bodied, notes of champagne. Champagne mousse after pouring in the glass. Grapes and a hint of mandarin curacao in the aroma, together with a hint of vin mousseux. Malty sweet flavor, immensely full bodied, with mandarine curacao and vinous notes. Thick mouthfeel, just a touch of yeast in the aftertaste. Huge beer. ABV on the label reduced from 15 to 11.9%. Recipe remains the same

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 20, 2011
Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Sötét rézvörös színe van, ami belül opálos, ködösen gomolygó, habja pedig egyáltalán nincs. Illata erősen aszalt gyümölcsös, édes, karamellás, malátás és likőrös. Ízében is az aszalt gyümölcsök dominálnak, mint a füge, mandarin, datolya, illatos körte, égetett cukor, édes fűszerek, virág méz és egy csipetnyi komló. Ahogy melegszik úgy mutatja meg egyre több oldalát. Nehéz, egészen sűrű, szirupos teste van és kevés, apró buborékot tartalmaz. Az alkohol rendesen zsibbaszt benne, de mégsem tolakodó. Utóíze is igen gyümölcsös, keserédes, kissé pipadohányos és igen hosszan tart. Igazi téli sör, ami remek befejezése egy gyümölcsös, alkoholos édességgel záruló vacsorának. Nagy sör!

Tmoney99 (12054) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured dark reddish brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly diminished with little lacing. Moderate to heavy alcohol and dark fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex standout beer.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2011
0.75l bottle @ RBNAG11. Pours a lovely light clouded copper-orange body with no head what so ever. Aroma is not to extreme but it has some woody tones, sweet caramel, leafs, a little bit of alcohol and light fruity hints as well. No carbonation in this one and it has this really sticky mouthfeel. The most sticky beer I’ve ever had I think. Sweet as hell flavors as well with lots of raisins, extreme amounts of dates, caramel and some floral tones toward the finish. A bit to sweet for a whole bottle I would imagine, but a glass was just perfect!

gEUS (1503) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2011
33cl Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Pours deep orange/amber with no head, just some hazy impressions. Nose of raisins, caramel, madeira, malt, peach, orange peel. Taste is so full bodied; massive sweetness from the beginning, mid tones of biterness and alcohol, medium dry finish. Taste of raisins (makes me think about a Loire sweet wine, type alike Quarts De Chaume - pourriture noble of Chenin), orangette (orange peel confit)... Niiiiice sweet desert beer

From the bottle. Poured a dark yet transparent amber. Like drinking apple juice with honey and cream. Not really sure what to think.

What a tasty barley wine! I’ve never tasted so much flavor in one beer. It was like a strong red wine. Not bad.
