50 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. BB DOMMEDAG (Doomsday...ha!). Lot P251108.
App.: Deep ruby with a so-so tan froth.
Aroma: Buttery and very malty, lots of crunchy caramel and toffee, butterscotch, some bright fruits, a slightly rum-like alcoholic elixir, some esters,
Palate: Medium+ body, fairly sparse effervescence, syrupy and slightly oily.
Flav.: Tons of big, sweet, thick malts, caramel, toffee, rum, some coffee, molasses, brown sugar, dark dried fruits, some earthy hops, still some buttery notes; the fruits brighten up on swallowing along with a very sweet, bitter and alcoholic finish.
I don’t think I’m a big fan of the style. Just too much.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A surprisingly highly drinkable sweet fruity crisp barley wine. Very nice.
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed with some age on it (1 to 2 years I think)
The look: Beautiful clear redish-brown body topped by a small long-lasting beige head
In long: Nose is fruity and very malty. Taste is surprisingly almost “refreshing”. There’s a lot of caramel in there but the beer doesn’t feel heavy to a refreshing tropical fruits flavour. Barley candies and liquorice candies. The pleasant woody hops (tree bark) are not assertive enough to dry out the beer in the finish and the beer leaves a brown sugar after-taste. Overall quite crisp and clean for the style, almost sessionable. I sure cannot say that Djævlebryg don’t make good beer. To be more precise, I cannot say any phrase with Djævlebryg in it as I have no idea how to pronounce it. Really.

Amazing bonus beer courtesy of madsberg. Thanks mads. Pours deep amber with thin tan head. The aroma is full with loads of dark fruitiness, sweet nutty extract butter and sweet yummy goodness. The taste is smooth rich blended dark fruity yum with dates, prunes, raisins, brown sugar and a light amount of booze. Wow, this is very nice and will only improve will years of cellaring.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Mostly clear, dirty orange ale with a small, fizzy, khaki head. Decent retention. I absolutely love the aroma of this beer. No one else seems to smell what I smell, so I guess I’m the oddball. I’m really picking up lots of caramel, of course, but also bushels of tannic tree nut shells – mainly pecans and walnuts. Full-bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel and subdued carbonation. The flavor provides gobs of sweet, sugary caramel and toffee and roasted nuts. Sweet, nutty, caramely finish. Thanks to Ibrew2or3 for sharing this world class bottle of beer!
