3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Deep orange with a big off-white head that lingers but dissipates after a bit. Big caramel sweetness notes with some fall fruit: apple, pear, orange marmalade, vanilla, wood and booze. Taste is more of the same but as it warms the alcohol really stands out of the finish. Hides the ABV fairly well at first, but as it warms the booze really comes out. Intense finish with some bitterness as well.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Aroma is barley wine sweet graininess, hint of apple and pear, booze, generic fruitiness, marzipan. Taste is good, get the booze and the grain, but also a hint of the barrel. Maybe more oak than grape, but good stuff. Nice but maybe the alcohol makes it a slow sipper. Further down the booze starts to dominate. Bit of a burn to it. Torn. Liked it a lot to start with but in the end found it hard to finish and it was only a little glass.
