3rd October 2011
Cloudy dark brown beer, residual off white head. Softish palate, slightly dry. Sweet well fermented malt! Lovely Port wine tones - rich red wine with a trace of cherry and black fruits. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Smooth finish. Very rich and very tasty - lovely!

Courtesy of madmitch76, thanks Ken. The little 25cl 2011 bottle pours clear deep copper with light tan head. The aroma is yummy inviting sweet caramel, molasses, prunes and dates as well as a touch of scorched toffee. Wow! Deep rich aroma that breaks the will of the aromatic sampling beer geek and forces a quick hurried sip well ahead of schedule. The taste is pleasingly the same with chewy rich caramel candy, molasses, prunes and earthy dates. Wow, the booze is way in the background for this big beer. Yes, this is rich sweet delicious English style barleywine. Love it!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a sherry-brandy-like body with virtually no head. Nose is fruity and complex, with licorice, pine, vanilla and hints of peaches. Taste is leather, strawberry, port wine, oak and honey; quite different than the original aromatic profile but so tightly composed it actually adds two dimensions to this great brew. Full-bodied palate. Extremely well blended, Brutalis is a high-class barley wine that I have no problems recommending to anyone.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaske: Umådelig sød duft, på en mørkebrun øl uden skumhoved. Et svagt pift da den åbnes afslører dog at der er en smule karbonering i øllen. Smagen er meget drikbar i små mængder grundet den store maltsødme. Kunne godt være en tand mere kompleks, men en svag humle bakker fint op om en udmærket øl.
