Thanks to my summer secret santa MisoW for that one. Label says B27 Barley Wine. Beer in the glass brownish, nice head. Sweet aroma. Starts strong, quite sweet, notes of sweets and bourbon, some liquorice. Finish too sweet and alcoholic. Not my favourite.

Thank you cuso / Imrich for that one ! Thick, bit sweetish with some syrup in the back. Strong and a perfect mate for a colder night. Enjoyed that one really. Front is a bit skunk but the end warming and sweetish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to MisoW for the bottle. Shared with ThirstyBird. Smell is sweet molasses. The beer starts very sweet. The nice floral and herbal notes are covered nearly completely by the malty sweetness. The mainpart is malty-sweet and slightly bitter. Like a German Malzbonbon. Far too sweet. Thick, viscous, sweet.
The aftertaste is long, but nearly only sweet and slightly hoppy. Nearly no herbs visible.
--> For me far too sweet. --> 8/4/9/8

Smells of malt extract with caramel and dark malt. Full oily body. Taste of alcohol and heavy malt with cherries and nutty lemon ness . The finish burns precious. Lots of gut rot.

Bottle shared at the "Lets celebrate the fact that Dean is already the Mayor of M&S Den Haag even though it’s only been open for 24 hours tasting!". Pours cloudy brown with a tan head. Aroma of caramel, overripe fruits. Flavour is heavy sweet and the mouthfeel is like molasses. A bit cack.

Bottle at the "Lets celebrate the fact that Dean is already the Mayor of M&S Den Haag even though it’s only been open for 24 hours tasting!". Poured a hazy dark brown with no life at all. The aroma is vinegar like with some molasses and light malt. The flavour is medium sour light bitter with a rich liqourice awful malt bitter palate. Truly awful.
