Pours a golden color with a very small white head. Smells very boozy with lots of citrus notes, possibly apricot or tangerine. Taste confirms the smell, strong citrus flavor with a very boozy finish, i guess that’s to be expected from an 18.5% ABV beer. The alcohol flavor becomes even more apparent as the beer warms. Overall a solid release from Mikkeller but very different from your traditional Barley Wine.

To be honest with you, I hate these "beer rating" websites, I feel they overshadow the real gems that are out there with "top beers" bias when consumers are in front of that beer selection looking to make a purchase, especially in this smart-phone-saturated day and age. But, because I finally opened this on-a-whim purchase that I made well over a year ago, I figured I’d provide a review. Pours a fairly-clear (but not filtered) gold color, low-mild carbonation, mild lacing upon swirling. Smells of booze, tons of caramel, vanilla, spice, and a hint of dark fruit. Light-medium body. Tastes as it smells. There is a little heat after swallowing, but that comes with anything 18.5% abv. Stellar stuff. Take my advice ..... share this bottle with a friend, do not drink this entire bottle by yourself like I have.

Opened after 1.5 years of cellaring, Pour is a Cloudy, Hazy, Murky Brown with almost non-existent carbonation and no head. Aroma is sweet earthy fruit, caramel, bubble-gum & hops. Flavour is similar with lots of fruit, dates, orange, caramel, apple and hops. texture is slightly oily and defiantly full bodied. this beer has a sweet warming astringent alcohol finish and is enjoyable
