4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 10.2%. Bottled on 01.02.16. Pours a clear, deep/dark amber with a creamy, fluffy, tan head. Great lacing. Sweetish, fat, malty, (dark) fruit aroma. Hint of liquorice deep down. Hint of wood as it warms. Heavy flavour; fat, malty and (dark) fruity, with a hint of citrus hops. Bitter liquorice finish with a mild alcohol burn, followed by more malt and fruit. Soft palate, but a wee bit too much carbonation. Overall very nice, well-balanced; the malt and fruit notes complement each other nigh perfectly, making neither stand out too much. Their combined effort does make it a wee bit cloying in the long run though, but I guess that’s to be expected from such a heavy beer. 10.08.16.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(355ml Jan 2016 bottle from Systembolaget) Pours clear ruby-mahogany with a moderate tight pale cream head that fades leaving a wall of lace. Aroma is sweet dark bread, toffee, burnt sugar, candied orange peel, pine and hop resin. Flavour is quite sweet, toffee, dark sugar syrup, sweet orange, dried fruits, maybe berry pie filling, earthy pine, spicy hop tones, slight toast. Finish dries out with extremely high bitterness, citrus peel, flowers, resin, almost woody astringency, some alcohol heat. Full viscous body with fairly low carbonation. Massively hopped barley wine, the finish is even a bit scalding between bitterness and booze. Well made but a little too brash for me to find as enjoyable as one with more edges rounded off.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a ruby-amber with a healthy, rich Christmas pull candy-colored head. Sweet caramel and a bit of hop harshness on the nose. Viscous mouthfeel. Rich malt presence, but no shortage of aggressiv hop. Lingering bitterness.

En flaska som lagrats en tid testades. Ganska kraftig öl med bland annat torkad frukt, russin, sötma och karamell. Alkoholen märks svagt av i bakgrunden.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of malt, caramel with notes of hops and fruits. Semi-clear brown liquid with a fine brown-white head. Light-medium sweetness in the beginning followed by an increasing high bitterness. To much bitterness in my opinion. Average carbonation, full body. I find it very fine barley wine though much bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Red/burgundy color. Caramel malt aroma with a lot of hops. Sweet, caramel taste with a nice bitter herbal hop taste/finish. Cool barley wine that has a secretly wish to be an Imperial IPA.
