Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 (Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 19 Sep 2008) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of dried fruit (apricots, raisins) and rubbery hops. Rather vinous. Malty taste with dried fruit (apricots) and lots of spicy, earthy hops in the finish. Rather sweet and vinous. More than medium body. Powerful, but with a good balance and a nice hop character. (7/4/7/4/15=3.7) Rerate 6 July 2014: (Bottle, vintage 2010, 10.0%) Brownish amber colour, slightly hazy, with dense beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, crisp-bread, prunes, raisins, dried apricots, earthy hops, hints of burnt rubber and a slight cellar aroma. Malty, fruit taste with caramel, raisins, prunes, dried apricots, dark bread, a touch of Madeira wine and a balanced bitterness with slightly earthy hops. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Well made and well balanced barley wine with a slight old ale character. Very nice.

Bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Shared with Dutchdrebus. Dark red / browm color, small off-white head. Smell wood, not much more. Taste chocolate, roastyness and sweetness. Bit too sweet in my opinion, but still nice. Medium to high carbo, medium to full body.

SirLimpsalot (2765) - SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2012
Stor kanske aning spritig doft med tydlig inslag av kola och frukt. Smaken är stor och tjock med en härlig känsla av tjära, lakrits och kola. Något kort eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
