COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Barley Whisky Wine får tankerne hen i retning af gamle dages herreværelse, hvor herrerne trak sig tilbage for at drøfte emner, der ikke vedkom kvinder og børn. Men i vore dage er denne øl en unik oplevelse for både herre og damer. Kraftig duft af røg, malt og egetræ med en fin antydning af alkohol. Øllen har et mørkt, rødligt udseende, og den fede væske hænger længe ved i glasset.
Smagen starter sødt i anslaget, derefter kommer en markant varme fra alkohol, efterfulgt af en tør smag fra egetræet og den letrøgede whisky. Slutter med en lang vedvarende bitterhed fra humlen.
Brygget på malt, sukker, vand, humle og gær. Lagret på egetræ og whisky.

yngwie (12630) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. The small, beige head sits patiently on top of a semi-clear, amber colored body. The aroma has dark dried fruits, caramel, some roasted hints and some boozy whisky hints. Hints of meatyness and quite evident hops too. In the flavor, I think the boozy alcohol is too evident, but it’s a quite nice one anyway. Dried fruits, caramel, some bitterness and hoppy flavors, and a touch of sugar too. Full-bodied, warming and pleasantly carbonated. Overall, a nice one, although I’d like it with less alcohol, and maybe a bit less sweetness. 120330

Bottled. A deep red beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, spices, flowers, malt, and a bit of alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with notes of caramel sauce, malt, hops, spices, and wood as well as hints of whiskey, leading to a dry, bitter finish, where the alcohol tickles the tongue.
