4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep honey color with a tiny head. This is all raw honey! The aroma is pretty much nothing else and you’d think you were smelling a honey jar if you were blindfolded. Not so overwhelming in the taste but still has a huge presence, along with some fruits and caramel. I quite like it!

Clear copper with some floaties and a minimal white head. Classic aromas of caramel, candi, sweet fruits. Full body, low carbonation, very sweet, banana , finishing on a banana cake note and warming finale. A bit sticky, but very classic for the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is great beer, but to be honest I really think some of the barleys from Norway are a lot better. This one really smells of alcohol, more than I’ve experienced before, as well as plums, dark grapes, heavy bitterness, great level of sweetness, and caramel, cocoa and coffee. Great, and well balanced, but not as full bodied and balanced as the best ones.

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)

Hazy dark marhogny with a small beige head. Aroma: Barley, bread, sugar, plum, raisin, yeast, maybe a little chocolate, alc. Taste: sweet, burning alc,, but ok balanced by the bitterness. A little too sweet, but still a good and complex beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma; A very sweet, malt nose with caramell, mocca, a hint of nuts maybe?
Flavours; More yeasty flavours in the mouth, with some yeast, leather going over to caramell, sweet coffee and brown sugar.
Summary; Not an overwhelming BW, and that´s what I like about it. You can have a whole bottle without totally feeling up my stomach.
