berlinoise2go (675) - NORWAY - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle (375ml) from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Small offwhite head that reduces to a thin film and a bubbly ring. Hazy, dark orange colour. Deep aroma of concentrated yellow fruit (apple, pear, plum, pineapple), alcohol, oak, biscuits, almonds. Full body, prickly carbonation, alcohol burn in the finish. Taste is very sweet and fruity upfront with a mild almondy bitterness, then gradually more alcoholic. Boozy-fruity aftertaste.

reebtogi (5080) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
375ml bottle pours a hazy orange color with a small white head that settles quickly leaving no lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and herbs with alcohol as well. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness finishing with an alcohol burn. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, this is a very sweet barley wine with a strong alcohol presence. A true sipper. Would recommend sharing this one as a full bottle is intoxicating.

Bottle shared at chriso’s Easter 2015 tasting - London. Thanks to Kenny! Pours clear gold with a white foam cap. The nose has ripe lemon, alcohol, acetone, peach. Big sweet flavor with light tropical fruits, peach, pale wood, bread, booze. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carbonation. Hot finish with simple white bread, melon, citrus peel. Hearty. A decent alcohol delivery mechanism.

Vestergaard (1147) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
2nd bottle at the Fermentoren Aarhus French oak tasting. Slightly darker than the limousine light toasted, but with the same head. Aroma is more jammy, less dry. Orange, apples, less hoppy. More tannins though, still some honey, but more caramel, but a more fruity tartness as well. Sweet and tart dominance. Plums. I liked this one better than the limousine.
