3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
180mL nip red wax, clear bottle from De Bierkoning. 16.2% Clear,
deeper amber pour with yellow bubbles. No real head formation. Rich tawny Barleywine nose with rich buttery bourbon. Excellent nose. Aged and full. More on the English side of the style. Taste is fruity and tangy with red fruit juice and hints of spicy bourbon ending with some oily warming and excellent thick heat. Very nice stuff. Definitely on the stickier sweet side but nicely balanced. Could use some hop balance or more body. Too sweet and fruit juicy.

At Carlsens Kvarter. Amber with a tiny white head. Malty biscuit aroma with port, walnuts, wood and vanilla, and some calvados-like alcohol notes. Sweet malty flavour with caramel and biscuit, rich vanilla notes and quite a bit of alcohol

Thanks to nbutler11. Bottle pours brown/amber with a khaki head. Aroma is sweet, showing plenty of caramel, light to moderate roast, vanilla, bourbon, and maple. Flavor shows basically the same with an added dried fruit quality that wasn’t quite present in the nose. Overall body is moderate and the alc is hidden extremely well considering the 16%. Now I know why the bottle is so small.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
18 cl. bottle in to a snifter. 2010 vintage, bottle # 1591.Clear, dark red colour with no head at all. Very powerful aroma, the room is filled with the scent from the beer. Lots of stuff in this one: Dark, sweet dried fruits, matured blue cheese, bourbon, thick brown syrup, caramel, alcohol and to my big surprise: Teriyaki sauce. Taste is light sweet. Full body with a thick texture, no carbonation at all. Long lasting finish with lots of the aroma components and a slight alcohol burn on the palate. Really unusual beer.
