330ml bottle, 2010 vintage. Pours a deep amber, beige head. Mature, malty aroma, caramel, walnuts, marzipan, toffee, fudge, dried fruits, sherry, madeira, earth, hops. Semi-sweet, full bodied, medium bitterness, creamy CO2. Malty, caramelly taste, the alcohol is quite evident but balanced, dried fruits, apricot, prunes, nuts, marzipan, madeira, earth. Long, sweetish aftertaste, dries out nicely. (2012-06-04)

330 ml bottle courtesy of Alex. Thanks. Pours a dark brown color with a small off-white head that recedes to a fine film. The aroma is raisins, carrots and slightly sour toffee. The taste had ample raisins, brown sugar and some nuts, but not very much bitterness. The palate was full and a bit oily with soft carbonation. Finishes short and sweet. Overall: Interesting brew, a nice change of pace from the barley wines that I typically get.

Malty and caramel aroma. Caramel is best in taste. It has a really "Barley Wine" of saithe in both taste and aroma. The upper part of the mouth gets its bitterness for a long while. But feels most mediocre anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

rarbring (2262) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2012 A clear deep chestnut amber brew, an off-white head, good lacing and some curtains.

Smelling of toffee, muffin batter, butter scotch, nuts and almonds. Some vanilla.

Starting with brown bread, brown sugar, syrup, dates, raisins, sherry, some bitter orange peel. Eggnog.

Medium carbonation, small bubbles, smooth, oily, sticky. A warm feeling (of alcohol), a big body.

A very sweet and warm barley wine. A real candy shot. Wonder how it will mature?

Bottle 330 ml. This was the 2010 vintage, 10% ABV.
