Tap @ Olbaren, Copenhagen. Pours dark amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet malty, vinous & spicy. Full bodied & very smooth. Alcohol is well hidden & the beer is extremely easy drinkable. Sweet caramel & anise/herbs dominates like in Mystikale! Nice Barley wine!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at EBF 08. It’s not really their best style. It’s a hoppy sweet barley wine. Bit musty. Not my favourite from this outstanding brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Bottle. It’s a clear, dark reddish copper beer topped by a small, dense, beige head. The aroma is heavy on the malty side, and a bit subdued on the hops. Raisins, ripe blue plums, beef-stock, caramel, pine cones and fortified wine. Full-bodied and warming, with a suitable co2 level. The alcohol is quite evident in the mouth as well, giving a rather pleasant burn. Flavors of sweetness, caramel, a tiny roasted note, raisins, some hoppy bitterness and alcohol fills the mouth. The finish is of the lasting kind, warming and sweet, maybe needing just a little more bitterness. A well crafted beer, but I can’t help feeling that my total score on the beer is a bit too high. But I enjoyed it very much. 090825

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours a wonderful clear, dark amber with a fine, frothy yellowish head. Aroma is very fruity, lots of raisins, overripe plums, some dough, rye bread, caramel. Low to medium carbonation, foamy and a bit oily mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit too vinious (a bit too sharp, that is). Otherwise, flavours include the fruitiness from the aroma (subdued by the alcohol though). A good caramel sweet maltiness as well. A bit too much.
