Mad_Ferret (658) - - MAR 23, 2014
Draft @ Mikkeller Bar Sthlm, 2014-03-17.
App: Hazy dark red, foamy dirty pinkish head.
Aroma: Sweet acidic yogurth aroma with raspberry, strawberry and toast.
Taste: Sweet and slightly tart raspberry jammy with yogurth and some spicy alcohol.
Palate: Big body, oily and slight sticky texture, soft tickling carbonation.
Overall: A bit weird for a barley wine, and not my thing from the beginning really. Still rather tasty and interesting though.

Yorker (1309) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2014
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours muddy dark amber with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are caramel, dried fruit, toffee, calvados, and a little honey - with a sweet and slightly alcoholic finish.

SirLimpsalot (2321) - SWEDEN - APR 2, 2014
@ Mikkeller Bar Stockholm: Mycket syrlig doft av kefir eller yoghurt. Smaken är ganska sträv med tydlig spår av mjölksyra. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solros (88) - stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2014
Doft: kakao kaffe ton, intresssant för att oftast slår spritsmaken genom men denne håller aromen på plats. Smak: välbalanserad kakao öl vill jag säga att det är. Hade kunnat ha denna öl till mina framtida kokosbollar. Gillar denna öl!!

gyllenbock (4959) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2014
On tap at the Mikkeller Bar Stockholm opening) Hazy dark amber with a large, fluffy head. Sweet with dried fruit, some roasted malt, toffee and something that reminded of honey. Also with light notes of Calvados. Fairly thick mouthfeel. A descent one.

ansalon (1559) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2014
Pours dark caramel with a fairly large creamy off-white head. Aroma is quite roasted overall with caramel, roasted almonds, smoked bacon, figs, dates, butterscotch. Taste is loads of sweetness upfront with caramel, honey, figs, dates, raisins, roasted almonds. Mouthfeel is sticky and full-bodied with low carbonation. Aftertaste is caramel, ripe apple honey and malt sweetness. Just fantastic. (Tasted March 15th at opening.of Mikkeller Bar Stockholm)
