3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a clear, orangey brown with a creamy, off-white head leaving some laces. Soft aroma of caramel and aroma hops. Quite a full body, sweetish with loads of caramel and a very warming alcohol. Hoppy indeed, but quite a harmonious hoppiness. A pleasant Barleywine, but not amongst the greatest of its style. 220406

Bottled. Deep rubyish brown colour with small head. Aroma is sweet malts, alcohol and some fruityness along with it. Flavour is alcohol, dark fruits, sweet malts as well as some fruity hops. Quite wellbalanced, even though the alcohol tends to come through a bit much.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Very dark reddish brown. Toffee nose. Grapefruity hops takes over from there. Very sweet with big crystal malt character. More toffee in a finish with less bitterness than common in US barleywines. Ina barleywine tasting session it wouldn't stand out much, but omhper likes barley wines, and this is good beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle says "vintage??" Amber brown with fast disappearing white head. Aroma is sweet sugar, malts, hops, bread & cookies. Sweet spicy warm, sticky & a bit alcohol burning. However alcohol is well hidden in the flavor. Nice lacings. Very well balanced. Complex barley wine & still easy drinkable. Wauw!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 2008-02-08, bottle at Plan B, Copenhagen, vintage 2007, 6-4-8-4-15=37
Dark brown color with red shades; thick head. Strong aroma of caramel, some cookies, alcohol too. Full bodied, with a round mouthfeel; it has a good but monodimensional sweet caramel flavor, loads of it, and the alcohol really warms the mouth as few other beers. The bitterness is balanced. Powerful, good, but no thrills.
2007-08-22, bottle, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Dark brown color; thick head. Creamy aroma, sweet, with some caramel and a touch of wood, maybe very light vanilla. Thick body, a bit oily texture, with a strong caramel flavor, nutty, and a reasonably strong bitterness at the end, when also the alcohol starts burning. Powerful but not special.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Good caramelly sugar aroma, some alcohol, hint of grassy hops. Deep dark red/brown with small floaties. The flavour is very sweet, caramelly, slightly roasted. Slightly rough finish, probably both from alcohol and hops, but good. Too sweet, though.
