33cl bottle, BB 12/2013 bought at Emelisse biershop. Cuivrée, rubis, col épais, crémeux collant au verre, beige café au lait. Arôme est fruité noir, sucre candi avec un houblon épicé presque sur les herbes de montagne, malt pâle avec un rappel à la réglisse. Palais garde me^me avec une bouteille de plus d’un an un profil bien herbacé avec une amertume qui perdure ne fin de bouche. Note aussi ce côté fruité noir de prune voire date qui se note en parallèle à un palais restant doux sucré collant aux lèvres presque de sirop et une fini légèremetn épicé.

Pure class! Beautiful aroma of coffee, grass, red berries and several other things. Taste of licorice and a perfect level of bitterness. Lovely-looking too.

Rune (8189) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2012
330ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo a few months ago. Fawn-coloured head leaving fragile lacing down the glass. Deep, dark ruby coloured body. Mid-sweet aroma of plums and earthy malts. Well blended jam-like taste with dried fruits and malt fruity bitterness towards a long-lived ending. Integrated alcohol. Full bodied. Perfect as a late night sipper (Tromsø, 20.10.2012).

angelkostvo (637) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 6, 2012
Looks like amber ale with no head. Aroma is rape plums, cherries, dark fruits. Taste is very pleasant you can feel the cherries the sweetness and the sourness of them and the nutty bitterness, also warming alcohol. Aftertaste is bitter. Complex and excellent beer.

Iphonephan (3351) - McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2012
From a 33 cl bottle at home. Pours a clear reddish amber with a short lived off white head. Caramel aroma. A bit of spruce and nuts in the taste. Lingering alcohol infused bitter finish.

33cl bottle from ABCBeers. Ok white head. Clear amber pour. Sweet and bitter at the same time. Much better than the normal barley wine. A great brew!
