Ruby red, good creamy beige head. A bit roasted malts, alcohol and horseblanket in the nose. Dark chocolate, rye bread, nice bready hops in the flavor. Nice barley wine style brew and now much better than last time. Rating based solely to this year’s tasting.

Keg @ Stockholm Beer Festival 2005
Sweaty cheese aroma mixed with Goldings (?) hops. Some roasted notes. Fruity and some raisins can be detected in the back. Slightly malt sour and quite sweet. Will probably develop from maturing. Still enjoyable.
