3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle provided by Cuso. Many thanks! Alcohol dominates this barley wine style beer completely. A lot of fruit is present although a barley wine style beer is not yet me cup of tea I find it very enjoyable. It will take a lot of time to drink just a small volume. We shared this bottle among a half a dozen of people.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at WVRST. Had a sticker that the LCBO had put on that said 10.2% (even though the menu said 15.2%, same as ratebeer). Presumably the 10.2% was determined by the LCBOís lab tests, and itís very far off from 15.2%... strange.. Anyway it poured a deep clear brown with no lacing. Butterscotch and apple in the aroma. Taste of candy, butterscotch, and apple with a bitter finish. Thick body, flat. Definitely tasted more like 10.2% than 15.2%. Tasty Barley Wine, though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at De Wildeman, Amsterdam. Poured a deep murky brown with a thin glass-hugging off-white head. The aroma is yeast, raisins and rich caramel. The flavour is medium to strong sweet with lots of rich raisins, liqourice, alcohol and Brett yeast on the super smooth palate. Considering the ABV the alcohol doesnít dominate but my teeth are complaining with each mouthful!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Deep rosy amber pour with no head at all. Nose is big buttery caramel bread, bit of whiskey heat, and vanilla. Lots of bready yeastiness, caramel, butter, and a surprising smooth whiskey warmth. Smooth and slick with no carbonation. Surprisingly good, though itís sweet and I canít drink much of it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Härliga kanderade toner. Mäktigt och tung. Enorm sötma. Aldrig stött på liknande. Riktigt bra. Hög lagringspotential.
Rerate: jolmig sötma och känns mest jobbig. Vad har hänt? Är det att den är lite färskare än sist eller har det hänt något??
