4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[At Københavnske Øldage 2005] A hazy orange beer with a small orange head. The aroma i sweet with strong notes of alcohol and oranges combined with light notes of hops. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of oranges and a good hop presence from at nice hop combination. It also has hints of alcohol - but the alcohol is pretty well hidden. The end is dry. A really nice Barley Wine - with some American inspiration with all the hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(On tap) Very dark amber colour with a very small head. Lovely aroma hops that also leave an intense bitterness all the way through. Distinct malty sweetness, but overpowered by the hops. Very warming alcohol - this indeed is a potent Barley Wine. 220505

Draught at DBF 2005.
Cloudy orange coloured with almost no head.
Hoppy aroma with lots of sweetness and malty notes.
Not much carbonation.
Sweet malty flavour with fruity notes.
Not bad, but I prefer barley wines with more sweetness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Amber colour, rich, lively head. Light orange aroma. Sweet and medium bodied with roundd mouthfeel. The alcohol is noticable. Orangey finish with medium bitterness. There’s not really that much going on here, so considering the quality of Grauballe’s other products this is a bit of a disappointment, although it is certainly not bad.

Cloudy amber color; thick creamy head; nice lace. Aroma of malt, fruits, flowers; short. Medium malty taste, correct bitterness, bitter oranges; but also a light astringency and too much bitterness given by the start of an infection.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Nice creamy head with medium duration. Nice amber color. Taste is very alcoholic and very bitter as well. Maybe this was a bad brew. Had to pour the rest out in drain.
