COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet Evil BBW is fermented with both British and Belgian yeasts to create a memorable smoothness for this Belgian-style barley wine-style ale. Sweet malt flavors will become smoother and rich dark fruit characters will build with time to add a wonderful complexity and depth of flavor

Pours a dark amber color, very little head to it. Aroma is very sweet with caramel, sugar, toffee, some plum, and candy. Taste followed the nose pretty much on point. Way too overly sickly sweet for me. Shared bottle with friends who all said the same thing. Not something I liked.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bomber given to me via PUB’R from the brewery. Pours clear deep coppery orangy colored with minimal off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, boozy, mild hops and vinous fruit. Tastes thick, syrupy, a bit cloying, with big malty sweetness, some fruitiness, and some honey and spirits in the finish, which stays thick. This is a sipper, and a sharer.

olio (6145) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
65 cl bottle @ PBF IX.
Pours clear mahogany color with a minimal head. Aroma is very sweet and syrupy, some caramel, ripe fruits and even some tropical fruit notes, faint hops too. Flavor of caramel malts, some alcohol burn, ripe fruits, resin, syrup, toffee and earthy notes, mild wooden notes on the finish. Quite sweet and the alcohol somehow manages to crawl through it. Might improve with age, maybe.

65cl bottle @ PBF Ⅸ
Vertical with Barrel Aged version
Aroma has malty tones, some caramel and toffee. Alcohol is present in the backgound, but not disturbing. Flavour is rather sweet with lots of caramel and some apricot. This is more sweet than the BA version and also more straightforward.

Bottle 650ml (PBF IX)
Clear amber color, small white head. Aroma is syrapy with sticky marmalade. Full-bodied. Grapes, sugar, honey, underlying light alcohol. Sweetness overdose. Way too sweet and in a simple way.

lusikka (6208) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
650 ml bottle @ PBF IX (vertical with the BA version). Pours a dark copper colour with a small head. Aroma of apricot jam, biscuit and some grassiness. Flavour is very sweet with apricot sweetness, plums, residual sugar, mild herbal notes and biscuit. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Very sweet sugary finish with some maltiness. Way too sweet. Maybe the barrel aged version is better...
