Pours a crystal clear mahogany. Great looking beer. Nose is awesome with vanilla, dark fruit, light spice. Flavor is just crazy awesome. Sweet malt with tons of caramel, vanilla, rich fruit, and light spice. Complex, brilliant. One of the best I have had from De Molen. Big thanks to Bloomster for hooking me up with this.

yngwie (14069) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle, 18cl. Unclear, dark golden to copper body with a minimal sized off-white to beige head. Vanilla, sugary sweetness, alcohol, bourbon of course, caramel hints and some dried fruits on the nose. Too sweet on the palate, almost sugary, with bourbon, dried fruits like apricots, coconut hints and some more sugar. Full body, almost flat, and not as warming as the ABV suggests. Nice, not wonderful. 110917

Leighton (11851) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 Bottle in Rome during The Stag Do. Super sweet and boozy. Full bodied with average carbonation and lots of heat. Warm finish, notes of aged malts, toffee, caramel. Lingering booze, heat, sugar and caramel. Very nice, even if these notes donít fully reflect it. (4.2)

Bottle at THE Barley Wine Tasting - East Croydon. I didnít bring this one - maybe Kenny did? Or Bruce? Anyway, yet again I neglected to take adequate notes, notes to do this fine beer justice. It was big and sweet and perhaps lightly cheesy, but on the whole I quite enjoyed it yet again. (3.9)
