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.

rodenbach99 (3573) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Bouteille de 750ml. Bouchon de liège recouvert de cire rouge. Bouteille #36 brassée au mois d’octobre 2010. Visuel: liquide de belle couleur cuivrée, une fine couche de mousse recouvre le tout. Olfactif: caramel, malt, raisin, fruits exotiques (très agréable), zeste d’orange et mandarine,compotes d’agrumes. Gustatif: Riche, très riche, la texture est crémeuse. Bonne amertume en fin de bouche. L’alcool est présent mais agréable. Résumé: Les bières de Molen sont bien meilleurs en format 750ml. et c’est un Barley wine sérieux pour les journées hivernales.

Leighton (14006) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2011
Tap at 4:20, Rome. Pours a lightly hazy ruby with a dense, white head. Sugar and rich malts in the nose, notes of caramel, ripe fruits. Very sweet flavor, like drinking sugar syrup, lots of caramel, cake, boozy berries, some straight alcohol, slight earthy bitterness. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warm finish with light sting, sticky sugar, lingering fruits and sugar. Nice.

Ungstrup (30468) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2011
Bottled. A hazy dark red beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma has notes of over ripe fruits, liquor, and some caramel. The flavor is very sweet with notes of over ripe fruits, alcohol, liquor, and some hops, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

SlovakSniper (3894) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2011
(Vintage 2010. Bouteille numéro 32 de 492) Le liquide a une robe ambrée. Aucune construction mousseuse. Au nez, liqueur de mandarines et herbes percent l’extrême douceur des malts. Au goût, les saveurs maltées sont intenses. Les notes fruitées toujours perçantes. L’alcool habile et dangereux. En bouche, le liquide est tout à fait lourd. L’effervescence est introuvable. La texture est bien grasse. La finale? Une ode maltée embrasée par une amertume d’alcool.

Nice dark brown dark red colored beer. Smell and taste too alcoholic, it’s dominating the beer. (Bottle said nr. 307 of 357).

Bottle @ Kaisla, Helsinki. Originally rated on 22.5.2010. Overly sweet, complex and malty barley wine. Slightly nbalanced and too sweet for my taste.
