Tap at Beer Temple. Chardonnay barrels. Lots of caramel cheese and booze. So sweet and sugary. Brown golden color with small white head. Not a fan, needed more hops

__Rb81 (383) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2015
Draft @ Beertemple, Amsterdam. Hazy orange amber with almost no head. Sweet, light vinous aroma of malts, wood, alcohol. Taste is sweet, alcoholic, malts, wood, hints of chardonnay, heavy alcoholic, malty aftertaste. Not for the weak.

Scotty001 (447) - Portlethen, SCOTLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Poured a slightly hazy orange amber with an off white froth. Aroma of big, meaty malt, berries. Full body, flavour as the aroma, not a lot of sign of the wine.

willisread (1090) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 2, 2015
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.

shoulderbroken (2884) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 30, 2015
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.
