RERATE Stockholm Beer festival 2007. Brewed 061230. This is just amazing, one of the berrer barley wines I have tasted. Malty, fruity and well balanced... (Stockholm Beer Festival 2005) Hazy amber, nice offwhite head. Malty, fruity aroma, nutty notes and quite alot of raisins. Vinous and also with some whisky and cognac notes. Malty, nutty flavor with fruits and some vanilla. Raisins and some floral notes. The brewer said he wanted this beer to mature for another year before being happy with it. I cant wait to taste it at the next festival...

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2011
33 cl bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid caramel copper colored with minimal head. Nose is fruit, caramel, old aley, with a taste of earthy brown sugary malt, figgy fruit, some vinous, old dank musty basement hints, backup hops, and some spirity notes. Complex and a bit astringent a times, this one reminds me of a 75/25 mix of something like Old Crusty or Insanity with Iron Hill Old Ale. Very nice.

Plovmand (6488) - Helsinge, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours very dark brown with a creamy beige head. The aroma is cocoa, toffee, chocolate, hazelnuts, tobacco and toasted caramel. Dried fruits. The flavor is intense and warming. Notes of ripe fruit, biscuits, nuts, sweet malt, toasted bread, light nutmeg, a hint of pumpkin and chocolate cake. Astonishing! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2011
33cl bottle, courtesy of and shared with Gnoff. 12.7% on bottle. Couleur acajou, col beige.Arôme est résineux avec malt caramel, sucre noir, raisin et fruits noirs. Bière qui est pleine de saveurs, un alcool réchauffant et axé sur une bonne présence du malt. Ce dernier donne un palais bien caramélisé, fruits noirs de prune, figue raisins, et note de malt grillé. Rappelle aussi la framboise fermentée avec une certaine aigreur et note de houblon. Facile à boire malgré ces 12%, épais liquoreux.
