4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
30th January 2010
17.6% Version. Cloudy amber beer. Floral hoppy nose with elderflower coming to the fore. Light airy palate, dry but not overly so. Sweet floral hops, elderflower, chamomile. A whisper of well buried hop fruit. All underpinned by intense sweet toffee malt. Finishes with some Port Wine tones. Bloody Nora! This is a good one! Not heavy like you might expect and with some unusual flavours for a barleywine.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Lord Nelson, Cph.
Pours a very impressive clear red with a small, creamy, off-white head that soon ends up as a thin film. Aroma is fruity, there is a strong note of rhubarb at first, softly vinious (which is impressive), caramel, toffee, grapefruity hops. Very low, slightly prickly carbonation, super oily mouthfeel. Flavour starts very, very sweet with lots of caramel. But this is luckily balanced well by alcohol and a powerful hops dose. Very dry in the finish actually. There are sherry notes everywhere, but still feels like a beer with rather chewy malts (almost crisp, even). The aftertaste, though, is sublime. The bitterness stays on my tongue and the top of my throat, while the warmth settles nicely in my belly. It is lovely non-alcoholic, yet still very strong. Very good for what it’s attempting, though I might prefer a Big Worse.
