3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaske: Rødbrun øl med et lille skumhoved. Duft af humle. Klart en amerikansk inspireret barleywine. Smagen er godt balanceret imellem humle og malt. Dejligt bid til sidst, God øl.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
No head, full stop. Red-chestnut beer, still. Oxydized, sweet bready and fruity. Prematurely aged Doppelbock. Some hops, no bitterness to speak of, rest is pure sweet liqueurish fusels. And as flat as a pancake, despite beign well-bodied and even viscous. Don’t know what’s wrong with it - bad keeping? Certainly not as bad as Jensen seems to think, IMO. But one thing is sure - this is NOTHING like American beer, let alone Barley wine.

Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours an unclear brown beer with a weak head. The aroma is weak and sweet. The flavor is sweet and unbalanced. The palate is sticky, has a good body but misses some balance. Overall the beer is unbalanced.
