0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Red-brown color. Sweet aroma with juicy berries and toffee. Sweet toffeish and berryish flavor with red currant and caramel. Stylewise english barley wine, which is not one of my flavourite styles.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Hazy dark ruby with a small, firm and tanned head. Sweet and grainy, very malty aroma with lots of creamy toffee and a touch of strawberry. Flavor is sweet and biscuity-malty with (straw)berries, toffee, cream, dried fruit, and some smooth-n-warming alcohol. Quite full body, thick and creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation. A somewhat sweet and straightforward, but clean and enjoyable barley wine.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 10.0%. Copper colour, large off-white head. Malty aroma, also strong notes of dark dried fruits and caramel, hints of oak. The fairly sweet flavour has notes of dark dried fruits, brown syrup and plenty of caramel, hints of oak. The bitterness is quite moderate, a little more wouldn’t hurt. Still a decent barleywine. I hate myself for not having some Blue Stilton cheese to go with it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a deep hazy brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of toffee and caramelized sugar notes is quite intense though doesn’t fall into gross territory. Taste is also dominated by very nice toffee and caramelized sugar notes with limited amount of piney hops. Body is full with god carbonation and no apparent alcohol notes. I really enjoyed this beer since it veered closer to English-style barley wine with well balanced flavours.
