[bottle at Danish invasion--thanks fonefan and cgarvieuk!]
Floral hops aroma with some nutty sherry-like character. Clear chestnut under a white ring and wisps. Bitter and sherry-like nutty flavour that is not from oxidation. Weak brown sugar accent. Medium body, moderately warming, slightly bitter finish.

Vanilla with some woodiness. Flavours are sweet raisins and woody pine with mixed spice. Caramel and marzipan with toasted malt and light molasses and cola with slick chocolate and vinous notes.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330cl tall dark brown bottle: best before 12/2011, so a bit out of date when I poured it into an ’Augustijn’ badged chalice in 3/2012.
This appears to be very close to ’Tally-Ho’ a little stronger and sweeter, but very ’samey’ in looks and aroma. This is a live review and it tastes more and more how I remember the breweries normal barleywine: I like it a lot!
Only complaint: the head didn’t appear at all.
