Small vast yellow ish head, that disappears very slow.
Very hazy amber/orange colored beer.
Smell fruit, orange, malts, caramel, light toasted malts, barleys. Smells good.
Taste is even better: sticky barleys, sticky malts, some sweets like caramel, some light brown sugars, herbs, light bitter and the slightest hint of honey.
Nice (sticky) barley/malty light bitter/herby aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and an oily sticky thick creamy texture.
Delicious beer, well balanced and smooth.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2011 Medium sweetness, some sourness, tastes of caramel. Sweetness to the finish and aroma as well. You can notice the alcohol both in aroma and taste. All in all, too sweet to get a better rating from me. Colour is amber, there is some nice lacing, white to brown foam. Moderate to low carbonation. (50 cl bottle)

Roodbruin bier met redelijke schuimkraag. Zoet, port, iets lekkerder en koolzuurhoudender dan de Barley Brew van Gourmet Bryghuset.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Overall, this was an excellent beer, and I can see it being paired with vanilla ice cream or lamb as a main course. Pours with a cloudy mahogany color, culminating in a medium-sized tan head that disappears quite quickly. Not a tremendous amount of lacing with this one. The nose was sweet: caramel, butter, dark fruits – very sugary. The mouth feel was syrupy and the flavor was wonderfully sweet, much like the nose, and with a distinct alcohol taste. I will certainly try this one again. Would certainly try it again.
