3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, deep mahogany with about two fingers of thick yellow tan head. Aroma of toffee, nuts, caramel malt, light banana and light soy. Taste has a very instant pungent bitterness that's quickly balanced by alcohol sweetness. In some ways it's reminiscent of an Abt. Body is rich and creamy with low, balanced carbonation. Tasty!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
28-FEB-2013, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer.
Murky brown with lasting, creamy, tan head.
Aroma is sweet malt, dark fruits, caramel, alcohol, tobaco, shoe polish (the brown color!), wood, cigars. Extremely complex. Taste the same. Sweet with loads of malts. Full body, soft carbonation. A little hoppy bitterness, but nothing compared to many other Det Lille Bryggeri.
Fantastic barley wine. One of - if not the - best from Det Lille Bryggeri.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. An unclear, brownish dark golden beer, more or les flat. Rather hoppy aroma, with pine cones and citrus peel. Quite malty and sweetish, with some dried fruits. A tad too much alcohol. It’s quite warming on the palate, full-bodied and sweet, with bitterness trying to balance it. Dried fruits, caramel, pine cones and lemon peel. Bitter finish. A slightly messy one, not my preferred beer in any way, but quite decent. 130216
