Amber with an off white head - sweet malt aromas that are very good - nice sweet malt body with some caramel and some alcohol heat in a very nice way - lingering maltyness in the finish with some caramel and a nice heat from alcohol - this was very good

Nose is full of sugary caramel with really mild hops. A small ring persists but nothing more. Mouthfeel is syrupy, treacle-like almost. Pretty sweet but not overly so, an honest bitterness cutting into it. Overall a nice english barleywine, can’t wait to try more from these guys!

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours dark amber with a big frothy white head. Aroma of grainy and bready malts, light hops and alcohol. Taste is sweet malty, light burning alcohol sweetness as well, lingering sweet. Full bodied. A tad too sweet.

500 ml bottle courtesy of Jacob. Thanks. Best before 30-05-2014. Pours a dark amber color with a small off white head that slowly fades to a fine film. The aroma is soft and understated with sweet musty pears, filberts and maple. The taste is mostly sweet with saccharin pears, apples, frangelico and a touch of sherry. The palate is full and creamy with soft carbonation. Finishes long and sticky sweet. Overall: Fans of sweet barley wines will love this one, and it should age well for those holding an extra bottle in the cellar. I’d love to see what time would do to this one, its better than average now, but could turn out great with about five years on it.
