What happened? Metal, mineral and sour. Not how I prefer my BW. I will try it again because it simply cannot be this bad, it must have been me...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
15-JUL-2011, bottle @home, from "Barleywine", birthday present from Vanløse.
Murky brown with light brown head that dies leaving a dull surface.
Lovely red wine and malty nose with a disturbing dusty note.
Taste is malty fruity - like blueberries. But also very oak’y and dusty with tea spices. A bit thin for a barley wine and low carbonation. My first disappointment from "Det Lille Bryggeri". Bad storage?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This 25cl 2010 vintage is courtesy of stobbe74, thanks Soeren. It pours out a nice looking mahogany with brown ruby egdes and tan head. The aroma is boozy, cherries, prunes and more booze. The taste however starts somewhat neutral and then fills in with booze and some dark fruity esters. Toward midway and then into the finish I get additional notes of black tea like earthiness and dry roasted malts that both conspire to create a fairly dry finish. This is an interesting barleywine with roasted malts and earthiness being a different take on the style.
