(33 cl bottle from Bunker Beer; 2008 vintage; BBD: December 2013) Pours brown, big tan head with decent lace. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel and vanilla. Soft carbonation, oily palate, really full-bodied and long, sweet and warming finish. Flavour basically follows the nose.

Bottle at O’Connor’s, Uppsala July 2012.
Hazy reddish/brown with a small head. Sweet aroma and taste of toffee, malt, syrup and some dried dark fruit. Big body on this one and not that much carbonation. Really a nice beer to sip. I am glad that I finally got to try it. Would love to have some bottles at home.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! 2008 and 12.7 on the label. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a small eggshell-colored head. Aroma of dried apricots, toffee, brown sugar, cookies, chocolate malts, and raisin. Flavor of cookies, toffee, brown sugar, toast, butterscotch, and dried fruits. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, bitter, boozy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lingering sweet malts on the finish. Not bad but messy.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
English style barleywine for sure, as tastes maple and caramel. Good mouthfeel. Some colour and head. A sipper, yet good drinkability over a meal at that.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted at Dark Lord Day 2011. Yes, I distinctly read "2008" from the label into my audio notes. Rarer than a Pliny, I’m guessing. Dark barley wine, very sweet malts. Solidly alcoholic. Hops were a little hard to find in the nose, but in the palate they show up, quite sturdy and bitter. That’s all the impressions I recorded, it was the end of a long day of drinking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Hazy mahogany colour. Heavy caramel aroma. Sweet with full body. Sticky, heavy butterscotch and caramel, sweet and warming with fairly soft mouthfeel. Oversized, but still not aggressive. Should improve with further aging.
