3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. An unclear, dark amber colored beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has a nice calvados booze touch, with maltyness, a generic fruityness, tropical fruits and a little pine cones. Calvados, some vanilla notes, dried apricots, canned tropical fruits mix, white sugar and some bitterness in the flavor. Full body with a faint warmth. Nice carbonation. Lasting finish with calvados and canned tropical fruits. Unusual for sure, but really nice anyway. Tasteful and moreish. 140717

Bottle from Barleywine, Copenhagen
Copper hazy, big beige head with big bubbles. Smells of apples, oak, citrus hops and some malts. Moderate to medium sweet, very fruity, almost juicy, apple and oak, this is for sure calvados barreled. Medium bitter, more calvados. Very nice, the calvados has really added another level here

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle of something a little special for #1700 - thanks Martin!! Deep amber with a lasting clingy off-white head, toffee, calvados and a hint of pear drops on the nose, full bodied with caramel and apple sweetness overlaid by spicy hops and a chunky alcohol bite. Smooth yet peppery and woody, a faint touch of citrus in there along with a faint brandy note. Fascinating, tasty and well balanced, almost like a beer liqueur.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaske delt med Ovesen en vakker høstsøndag (aktivitetsdag på Holmen): en forførerisk duft av humle og vanlije kiler i nesen, og ganen gir etter for vellysten. Nydelige saker med balanserte humle og maltsødme med litt alkoholstreif og vanilje - vanskeligere å erkjenne calvadospreget. Uansett et kjempegodt koseøl som jeg vil oppsøke igjen.
