hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottle… Murky burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The bouquet is a bit reserved, but I’m finally able to discover some very pleasant fruit and caramel notes veiled within. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and laid-back carbonation. The malts dominate as the flavor releases bittersweet caramel and toffee. Finishes mostly sweet and leaves my tongue numb (Novocain-like). Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

Bottled, thanks Timo A! Dark reddish reddish. Very sweet with soapy-lemony hops, toffee, raisins. Thick toffeish flavor with soapy-lemony hops, biscuity and nutty maltiness, dark fruits and firm bitterness. I like the raisiny barley wine character but the hop profile is too soapy.

Bottle. The aroma is malty, light sour, a soft touch of citrus. The head is large, beige and creamy-foamy, slow disappearing. The body is black. The taste is medical-bitter, strong taste of hops, some citrus. The body is creamy and light oily, heavy and without much carbonation

Superb Beer. Looks excellent in the glass deep red with a touch of haze, tan sticky looking head., huge aroma of spice, wild strawberries, toffee, caramel, treacle, liquorice, hops, orange - it just go’s on an on. Palate is instantly mouth coating with big hops up first, tonnes of dried fruit, apricot, more treacle, some mineral earthy motes, all the aromas follow through on to the palate except the strawbs perhaps. Lots of spicy chunky malt with a lovely warmth from the booze within, but not at all over powering abv-wise. Finish is long with lots of marmaladey treacle and some very well played hops making for great balance between bitter and sweet. Just a fantastic beer, and after having it at least 5 or more times I can safely say one of my all time favourites. De Molen are indeed, Righteous!

Big thanks to madmitch76 for sending this beauty across the pond. The 750mL, corked, caged and then red waxed bottle has a striking, nay, impressive pour. I see this muddy amber liquid glugging away out of a bright red waxed mouth of the bottle. It is a beautiful sight to be sure. In the glass it has a hazy murky amber body supporting a light tan head. The aroma is a clean mix of pine, musty malts, some raisins and some prunes. The taste has a thick aged maltiness blending into full rounded assertive pine hoppiness that strides smoothly into the finish. This has turned into a wonderful American style barleywine.

Svesse (6716) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2010
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Wallingatan, Stockholm) Dark brownish amber colour with brief head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit, orange, grapefruit, red berries, rubber and huge amounts of piney, citrussy hops. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, dried fruit and a generous hoppy bitterness with hints of black-currant, grapefruit and pine needles. Full body, fairly sweet and very bitter. Low carbonation. There’s a touch of warming alcohol but the hops and malt mask the alcohol level fairly well. Excellent beer.

Pours deep ruby, brown with a sticky, off-white head that fades slowly. Big, earthy, piney hop aroma with some underlying deeper malt like deep fruit or molasses and some pineapple in the back. Aggressive hop bite in the mouth, though quickly balanced out by a sweet, deep fruit malt character and a lingering, grassy hop bitterness. The alcohol is well hidden for the abv. As it warms, the sweetness becomes more pronounced, though the big hop profile remains. A great imp IPA.
