3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very delicious barleywine. Pours a bright, cloudy yellowish orange with a thin, dense off white head. Light lacing, alcohol on the glass. The nose is sweet, toasted malts, grassy and citrus hops, floral and nice and mellow. Sweet toasted caramel and corn malts up front with citrus, lemon, grapefruit, grassy and lightly spiced hops. Well balanced with an underlying richness, subtle bitterness. Nice malt to hop balance. Heavy and rich for a sweet brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Low but lasting white head. Hazy orange body. Powerful citrus mango aroma and flavor with a bit of caramel. With this beer the corn makes the beer smoother and more creamy but not too much of a good thing. The lemon mango caramel flavors prevail. The combination with a good deal of hops bitterness and a balanced amount of alcohol ads to the nicenss of this beer.
