(Bottle 35,5 cl) Vintage 2003. Pours amber with a slight haze and a huge, creamy, yellowish head leaving a neat lacework. Caramelish nose with a nice edge of aroma hops. Nice, full body with lots of fruit - almost perfumy - exotic fruits actually. Distinct sweetness balanced by some bitterness in the finish. Tasted at the Oklahoma Beer tasting March 06 hosted by mjames and lilannie. 240306

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2006
Bottled (2005, thanks kenb!). Nut brown colour with particles floating around, mediumsized creamy beige head. Aroma is about the same as Fred but has some very sweet (s sweet it’s hard to tell if it’s sour) stuff included. Flavour is alcohol, sweet caramel, yeast, lots of hops and honey. Somehow, pouring the yeast into this one seems to be a mistake, as the yeast gives very strong flavour. Alcohol does it’s "warming" in this one. Somehow, though "only" 10% Fred seemed much smoother to the flavours. And no, it is not bad even though I write some "negative" things in the rating.

Bottled.Reddish amber. Gingery nose. Warming and salty, very malty. Grapefruity hopsfight with licorice and alcohol. Rich and soft but bold. All the flavours doesn’t really mix.

Bottle from 2003 thanks to kramer17801 for this one. Pours a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Roasted malty dark fruit aroma with some weak hints of hops. Sweet malty bitter dark fruit flavor with hints of caramel and hops. Warming finish with lots of caramel and dark fruit, also some alcoholic hints. Very nice one.

Cloudy brown beer, thick pale tan head. The head has a lovely creamy bitter toffee flavour. The beer is rich and sumptuos. Sweet malt with a blooming aniseedy alcohol. Semi dry finish. Very tasty barleywine.

Vintage 2005, 2 years old
Muddy amber color; the head disappears quickly. Sweet caramel aroma, light cereals, sweet nuts, very nice hops. Sweet flavor, thick body, malt and caramel flavor, a bit spicy, light fruitness of bitter oranges. The palate is almost oily, amidst the malt a strong bitterness appear, almost too much (probably due to excess of yeast).
