23.10.2011. 0,5l Bottle. Dark amber brown colour with a thin layered off-white head. Aroma is rich malty with lots of malty flavours, caramel and roasted sweetness. This beer has a wonderful smell. Very good flavours of caramel malt. Very sweet with strong notes of alcohol. Low on bitterness. There is some nice, very soft tones of flowers and aroma hops at the back of this beer. Conclusion: Sweet caramel and very good.

50cl bottle. Clear reddish amber colour with a small off-white head. Raisin, plums and caramel in the aroma. Average to soft carbonation and medium body. Taste is too sweet, with some liquorice notes. Overall, a fulsome sweet beer than can turn into something boring.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
