Peter_L (752) - SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2014
Flaska från SB. Kopparfärgad vätska. Söta druvor och daddlar i doften. Daddlar återkommer i smaken med en häftig skjuts av humlebeska. Fruktig och eldig. God.

Staffan47 (873) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Efter att nyligen smällt i sig kanske en av de bästa barleywine någonsin är jag ju något kritisk redan innan jag testar denna. Flaska från 2010 på SBWF 2013. Sista exemplaret och bryggmästaren är nöjd över att få sälja den till två killar (Per) som uppskattar öl. Vinös doft. Krämig med smak av karamell.
