Big malty flavors, including licorice and chocolate, are balanced with a moderate hop profile. Brewed with copious amounts of prized malts and flaked oats, the Barley Wine is so strong that it has to be aged for several months before we can bottle it. Like a fine wine, it will continue to improve with age up to 2 years after bottling (If kept cool).

WillemsUrenkel (483) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2013
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!

Fles gedeeld rikstar. Mooie donkere bruine kleur. Zeer complexe geuren. Ik ruik chocolade, citrus, hop. Smaakverloop is: als 1e, geroosterde moutsoorten, vervolgens vleugje citrus, welke overgaat in een chocolade afdronk. Zoete afdronk. Heel licht bittertje. Heerlijk complex biertje.

Fles gedeeld met peltmeister. Kleur mahoniebruin met een donker schuimkraag die snel verdwijnt. In de geur mango van de hop, gerst en cacao, mooi complex karakter. Ook in de smaak komen deze tonen naar voren. Het begint zoet en eindigt in het hoop en gist bitter mooie volle body, echt een topper.

DenverLogan (796) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2013
From a bottle at least 5 years old. Poured into a Duvel glass...0,25l. Pours a rich, muddy brown with moderate head and lace. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, straw hops, and slight wet cardboard. Moderate carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of caramel malts, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, molasses, slight dark cherry. Given the age of this its held up beautifully, with modest oxidation. Im rating it on its ability to age and recent tastings of fresh batches.
