JorisPPattyn (8335) - Ursel, 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 (22105) - 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 (2193) - 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.

Rune (9079) - 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).

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2011 Rating #314, sample at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010

Medium head, dark amber / brown appearance. Aroma of caramel, citrus, berries, dried fruits. Flavor was very similar, allthough the alcohol was present too. Throat-warming beer, but the sweetness hides the high ABV very well. Very full body, creamy and oily. 6-3-8-5-16: 3.8

Re-rating @ CBF ’11

This time the beer was lighter, nearly golden with a nice head. Aroma is hay , plums, pineapple, yoghurt, citrus, and some slime I used to play with as a kid.Flavor of plums, pineapple, fruit, alcohol and light bitterness. Soft and thick.
