cpetrone84 (1332) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2010
A-pours an orangish amber color, quite clear, with an off white head with a good lace. S-the nose has huge hops, cheese up front, notes of funk, a caramel malt lies up front but citrus and grapefruit take over big time and don’t quite. T-again huge hops, cloying sweetness up front, tons of cheese, notes of sulfer, hints of caramel, tons of citrus, grapefruit, tangerine. tons of hops in this with a light bitterness. M-a little grainy on the palate with a medium body and lots of carbonation and a crisp finish. a little syrupy but soft on the tongue. D-this is different, the flavors are off and don’t work well together. the hops and cheese just don’t seem to be a nice mix. not very enjoyable but the huge hop finish is interesting.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Bottle (17.6%) Pours with a large off-white head and a hazy orange body. Good legs and lace. Aroma of orange, burnt orange, caramel and burnt caramel. koji, champagne grapes, and pear eau d’vie. Taste is alcohol, dark fruits, bitter, big, cloying sweet and burning. Syrupy mouthfeel and medium bubbles. 120 like without the good hops..

JorisPPattyn (7814) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2010
Faintly hazed foxy red beer with medium, sligthly yellowish head as whipped eggwhite. Fruity aromas jumping out of the glass, especially passion fruit, also mango, orange, grapefruit, white grapes. And USA hops, getting drier, hopbales like. Very fruity bittersweet flavour; bitter oranges, kumquats, grapefruit, pineapple- and strawberryesters. Caramel, toffee, maple syrup and fusels. Oh, and some hops... Alcoholwarming, very slick-oily. Fiery, yet drinkable. Warming up, benzeneFruitester bomb, superbly hopped, yet adequate malts. Mikkeller seems to get better every month... though this one reminds me of Mikkels’ first homebrew Barley Wine I ever tasted.

oh6gdx (20244) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2010
Draught@CPH BeerFest2010. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood and some mild yeast, alcohol and gluelike sweetness. Flavour is fruits, alcohol, a bit gluelike sweet. A bit unbalanced, and not all too pleasant.

Slipstream (1994) - USA - MAY 27, 2010
This big barley wine was on tap at Rattle’n’Hum. ABV was listed as 12%, not 17%. Lightly fruity and honey-sweet aroma. Sheet lacing on the glass. Very smooth for the style, without a lot of the earthy, yeasty funk one sometimes finds in a barley wine. Fairly sweet, but well hopped too. A very good barley wine that was selling for the high price of $7 (US) for a half pint.

Bottle. Toffee colored beer with a cream colored head. Pine and grapefruit aroma with big alcohol notes and sweet caramel. Alcohol flavor with pine, summer fruit, and caramel. Medium-plus bodied. Alcohol and sweet malt linger with summer fruit and pine.

Tap @ Copenhagen 2010. Slight hazy copper color, short head. Firm malty body. Alcoholic raisiny sweetness. Bit over the top. Preferred the cat in the barrel.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2010
250ml from tap at Ørsted Ølbar & Café. Murky, dark reddish body, no head. Aroma of sweet dried fruits. Sweet hops and dried fruits in flavour, dominated by apricots. Moderate impact of alcohol on the palate. Alright sipper that gets a bit too sweet (Copenhagen, 09.05.2010).
