Robe cuivrée, légèrement trouble. Arômes très floraux, végétaux voire résineux. Texture crémeuse, persistance moyenne, carbonation faible. Un équilibre complexe entre le sucre et l’amertume, on sent très peu l’alcool malgré ses 11%. Saveurs de réglisse et de sucre candy.

AgentAle (683) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 17, 2014
Aroma is rich and earthy with a deep hop profile. Citrus, grapefruit, caramel and toasted grains. Taste is very nice ; clove bitterness, toffee, caramel, sweet rich malts and a fragrant yeastiness. Slight tart finish with light liquor presence that finishes smoothly. Appearance is a hazy amber orange with a pearl head that retains fairly well.

Koelschtrinker (10649) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Hopfiger, viel zu süßer Antrunk. Zuckrig, fast schon plörrig, leicht grasig, helles Malz. Dann nur noch Süße. 9/5/5/6/9/5

olio (6168) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
75 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours clear golden color with a medium sized head. Quite hoppy aroma, resin, wood and caramel malts also. Resinous hops, caramel and malts on the flavor, citric fruits, some alcohol comes through at the end. A bit weird Barley Wine, definitely interesting, and very sweet.

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
750 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A. Pours a dark copper colour with a small head. Aroma of floral hops, perfume, citrus and grass. Flavour of heavy sweet caramel malts, syrup, rich floral hops, apricot, some bread, herbal notes and white grapes. Full bodied. Lingering bitter finish. Very sweet.

robinvboyer (3107) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
Dark bronze pour, small beige head. Very fruity aroma, lots of dark stone fruit. Very sweet, cloyingly so. Sweet boozy malts, notes of sherry, and booze soaked bread. This isnt my bag,

Gluepot (62) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
a nose of rich tropical fruit with a lively white head. This reminds me of a European take on the barleywine model - a nice range of tropical and citrus fruit, significant sugar, but balance in large part by grapefruit hops (not always the case in central and southern European variations !). Unusual but very enjoyable.

jbeatty (1022) - New York, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle, 06/11/2014. Ruby amber pour, frothy white head with great retention, soapy lacing. Aroma is caramel, red fruit, tropical hard candy, sticky resinous hop notes, mild pine and moderately grassy. Taste is sweet syrupy malts, sticky fruitiness, resinous hops, dark bitter caramel finish. Thick body. Really a bit messy, overly sweet and while very hoppy, doesn’t seem to really provide enough kick to offset. Ok, but just.

cargo150 (578) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
Pour commencer bel couleur orangés avec un beau col plutot résistant. Un nez plutot désastreux de médicaments, de fruits et de sucre d’orge... En bouche mis a part le gout bizarre qui me font pensé a de la peinture a l’huile, beaucoup trop de sucre d’orge accompagné de fruits tropicaux et de caramel. Bière vraiment débalancé... 101 IBU qui ne parrait pas du au fait qu’il y a une quantité illimité de sucre. Je suis du coté de ceux qui ne l’aime pas. Bonne facon d’avoir le diabète... Je donne quelques points pour l’originalité...

750ml bottle. Hazy burnt orange with a thin foamy white head. Flavors are pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, sugar, sweet malts, grass, pine resin and alcohol. Full body, soft carbonation, creamy texture.
