4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours a very deep dark brownish red - without light behind it, it looks positively black. A nice, staying creamy off white head with good lacing. Aroma is sweet, lots of dried fruits, chocolate and Belgian sugars. Extremely creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation. Flavour is powerful, lots of sweetness with a terrific amount of caramel, roasted malts, chocolate. Lots of viniousness, but never alcoholic. This is really a nice BW.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle-pours a thin light tan head and cloudy dark brown color. Aroma is dark malt-sweet toffee, dark fruit, some spicy, alcohol. Taste is dark malt-sweet toffee/chocolate, some spicy, hops, alcohol. Medium/full body. Too much spice hangs too long through the aftertaste. OK carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark brown with a red hue, big and creamy beige head. Aroma of malt and bread, with port and dried fruits. A true barley wine aroma, but a bit simple. Really malty dominated flavour, with lots of sweetness and complex notes of the high alcohol content. After a while, the malt sweetness gets a little cloying like a bad doppelbock. If we had geographically divided sub-styles, I would count this as an English, not an American barleywine.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Labeled 2006B. Aroma of malt and chocolate - I think there really was a light wiff of licorice when the cap came off. No head. Brownish color. Starts dried plum and raisin. It’s malty sweetish, and has a firm mouthfeel. Hop is very light. The alcohol warms the palate, and the throat, and below. As it warms, there does seem to be pear, probably not apple.The mouth sensations do seem to turn a bit unpleasant, if one quits sipping. Sort of like heated banana. This is pretty complex.

Bottle. Poured hazy brown color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate spicy malty and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet spicy flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.
