( 750ml bottle, courtesy of Ungstrup ) Well another beer named after…the man, the myth, the beer legend. Pours an amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, vinous, brandy, oak, and vanilla. Flavor of vinous, caramel, green raisins, dried apricot, and some light spices. Happy 40th, Jens!

Theydon_Bois (8695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Bottle split at Bruce’s, big thanks to Leighton for digging this one up, 08/04/14. Lightly hazed amber with a moderate off white covering/edgeing. Nose is tarte fruit, spice, bitter citric rind, orange peel, caramel, dates. Taste comprises dark fruit rind, prunes, stoned fruits, Xmas cake, spice. Full bodied, fine carbonation, drying booze charged finale. Solid barley wine, plenty of depth and flavour and drinks fairly easily considering the ABV!

Leighton (10989) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle shared in London - huge thanks to Anders for this one. Pours lightly hazy, golden-brown with a foamy, off-white head. The nose has rich bread, some toffee, golden raisins, hints of butter. Big sweet flavor with heavy golden raisins, dates, rich pale bread, white sugar, stewed apples. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Rich, lightly warming finish, tons of sugary bread, moderate fruits, more golden raisins, pale toffee. Delicious. Extremely decadent and hefty but really damn tasty.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours darkest-amber brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, malty, brown bread, toast, dirty, caramel, toffee and honeycomb. The taste is toffee, brown sugar, honey, candied citrus peel, nectarine, wood, oily and earth with a dry, warming finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not bad.

laiti (5694) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2013
33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Rated on 05.03.2010
Aroma is sweet with somewhat ripe fruits, sugary notes and caramel. Flavour is really sweet with fruits, shitloads of caramel and some sugary notes. Too sweet and too boozy, just like Bommen & Granaten. A good way to get a diabetes.

humlelala (984) - DENMARK - DEC 7, 2012
(bottle #504 I think; courtesy of Ungstrup - huge thanks!) Pours a dark amber, clear with small floaties and no head. Aroma is surprisingly refined with notes of cognac, oak, rye bread and maybe a tinge of oxydation. Pretty flat, oily texture with a full body and quite a sweet, warming finish. Taste generally follows the nose, is characterised by sweetness with plenty of aroma notes. Smooth and with the alcohol very well masked.

Hazy red-amber beer. Aged malt nose. No head, low carbonation. Semi dry palate, a little soft. Rich sweet malt, fruity. A nice low key blend of orange and cranberry and generic fruits. Very light vanilla wood, subtle brandy and provides a brief warm note. Nice liquer beer!
