Zlotta (2270) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Slightly hazy, dark amber with a beige layer. Sweetish-malty aroma of caramel, honey, vanilla and some almond. Very sweet and malty taste of caramel, honey, vanilla, some treacle and a touch of oak, followed by a rather long, slightly bitter, rather warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly effervescent and a bit oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice!

tmrmwel (1836) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2015
Bottle, enjoyed almost 4 years after bottling. Pours clear golden, with a short lived creamy head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts with grain, toffee and heather as well as kandi, wood, dried fruits and massive herbal cognac notes. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet grainy malts with bread, chocolate, toffee, honey and banoffee pie, as well as dried fruits and some hot and very fitting cognac and vanilla notes. Dark malty chocolate in the finish. Very smooth and balanced, especially considering the ABV. Splendid brew.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015

A – Clear yellow with a weak head.

S – Loads of alcohol, a bit wood, sweet. filled with apricot and figs,. lightly tart

T – Taste is very sweet very filling, almonds, pear, apricot and caramel. Super balanced while boozy.

M – Very very light and nice fizzy champagne bubbles.

O – One of the very best Barley Wines I’ve tried, but I’m a big fan of all the Big Worsters, except maybe the raspberry and blueberry edition.

Yorker (1934) - Herning, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2014
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours slightly cloudy amber with a little sediment and an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are caramel, dried fruit, sugar, and alcohol - with an alcoholic finish. Way too boozy.
