Jaksmart (394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2010
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. Deep ruby pour, light, off-white head. Very intense aroma with a huge malty and sugary attack with a lot of oak, sherry, rum, port wine, alcohol, raisins, dark, rich berries and figs. The taste packs a violent malty/sugary punch as well with lots of oak, rum, sherry, alcohol, syrup and some strawberry. Thick, punchy palate with an oily and sticky texture, full body, low carbonation, medium duration. Very intense and interesting.

Tab@Mikkeller Bar. Pours deep rubyred/brown with a small tanned head. Aroma has sherry, dark fruits, figs, dark berries, huge sweetness, some obvious alcohol, notes of fermented apples. The palate is massive. Huge malt sweetness, dark berries, some dried figs, dates, prunes, lots of alcohol, dry oaky and slighly tart finish and after taste. Huge body, soft carbonation, long duration. A good but really heavy barley wine. I really enjoyed this.
