Deep cherrywood colour, patchy head; aroma of candy fruits; tastes of sweet malts, dried fruit, especially cherries on the finish; short finish, some bitterness; it’s ok, but it felt a little unbalanced, lacking something; I love barley wines but I failed to love this.

0,355 l bottle. Pours nearly oily, dark red brown, small foamy light tanned head. And what a nose with herb citrus fruit, coffie and malt! Starts moderat fruit malty with citrus and coffie, creamy on the tongue and palate. Warm alcoholic hints, a little bit well balanced bitterness on a sweet level. Sticky lipps at the end. More of that!

A very nice beer. iIt was poured from the bottle into the glass. The appearance is very good: not black but dark brown, and with a very nice amount of foam. The taste is also great: a nice sweet taste, with hints of vanilla and coffee and nuts. Nothing to dominant, good balance. Very nice beer!
