Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Chestnut brown, hazy, good carbonation. Big pine aroma, West Coast hoppy, suggesting low malt balance. Sharp flavor, acidic, citrus pine...yes, indeed, the balance is poor. Not my kind of barleywine at all. My first beer of the RBSG 07 Grand Tasting...too bad I chose one that doesn’t fit my preferences.

Bottle at Jan & Charlottes tasting, Ulfborg, Denmark 09.04.11 cheers Jan & Charlotte Murky chestnut brown with a light beige head which soon disappears. Some fruit n the nose, heavy sweetness and a bit harsh in the mouth. Bittersweetness coming through, not as smooth or as rounded as the description suggest. A5 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.8

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2004 Bottled, thanks marbles! Dark ruby, flat. Chocolatey and buttery nose. Very full bodied. The mouthfeel is bold and clumsy. Sweet, yet salty, raw and grainy. There’s loads of alcohol, and also loads of other flavour, but all is in a mess that I can’t sort out.
