A masterfully made barleywine - for such a high abv value its a very easy drinker indeed, and the cellared bottle I enjoyed had loads of bourbon flavor and a decent amount of sweet smokiness. Cant specifically taste any maple underneath all the other great stuff, though who could really expect to? Yummy late night dessert treat!

Tap. Hazy red brown pour with a small white head. Red berries, oak, hop, spice, maple syrup. Full body. Oaky and syrupy but with fruits. Nice

Bottle split at the sleepy-rapping tasting at Ronny & Alex’s pad, CBC fine tuner, 30/04/15.
Lightly hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is rich malt, spice, toffee, dates, figs, light booze fumes.
Taste comprises rich fruit rinds, spice, malt backbone, caramel, figs, fruit cake.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with lightly warming booze.
Decent barley wine, drinks way below the big 15% billing!

Bigger tasting at Ronny’s flat, Copenhagen. Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with modest fine carbonation. Spicy caramel malts. Brandyish alcohol. Dried fruits. Semi dry finish and a spicy linger. Still quite warm after a couple of years. Decent though.

Very good beer. Lots of hops for the age. Had a serious night at the end. But still good.

Sample at Linköping Beer Expo. Almost clear amber liquid with small white head. Aroma of raw sugar, bourbon, toffee, wood, maple syrup and light booze. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of bourbon, wood and raw sugar. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Really nice albeit maybe unnecessarily strong.

Köpt på Linköping beer expo. Väldigt stor och tung pjäs. Arom som en kraftig barley wine. Mycket av både humle och malt i smaken. Ganska söt och lite oljig eftersmak.
