sagmarium (78) - - JAN 14, 2013
Bebida en la tienda "La domadora y el león" de Nerja, Málaga. En una botella de 330ml lo primero que se aprecia es el aroma a alcohol que desprende. No se le aprecia apenas espuma y de bajo amargor. No es ideal para principiantes.

jjgmd (1697) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2015
With Z , July 4th evening, pours a clear light rusty gold color with an ephemeral beige head. Nose has champagne notes with alcohol and hops. Taste is bitter sweet with strong alcohol and hard resin and pine notes, and well balanced... enough to taste some caramel, toffee and malt. Finish is bitter sweet, with the bitterness accentuated along with the alcohol, ending is dry and long. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Bottle. Pours a rusty orange with a beige head and aroma of Citrus, pine, and light spice. Taste is strong, with citrus, pine, caramel, spice notes with hops leading to a bitter, warming, dry finish.

weark (430) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Bouteille achetée che Erzbierschof - De couleur orange pâle avec une fine mousse blanche - Au nez une bière très complexe, tout de suite des notes de malt, de biscuit, d’alcool, de caramel, presque un barleywine, mais il y a aussi des notes de houblons bien présente, du fruité, de pêche, de mangue, d’orange, de grapefruit, de résine, une petite présence de vanille et de cassonade, impressionnant - En bouche ça ressemble beaucoup un un barleywine mais en beaucoup plus fruité, les 14% se font bien sentir, beaucoup de malt et beaucoup de houblon, plus d’agrume, très impressionnant et très complexe - Corp puissant, amertume forte, bonne carbonation, douce et amère, une final longue fruitée (orange) maltée et amère - une bière tout en puissance très complexe qui devrait bien se conserver

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2015
Smallish offwhite head. Clear amber body until I poured the dregs in. Full toffee raisins and nuts aroma with earthy alcoholic notes. Intense sweet toffee and syrup taste with resiny notes. Full-bodied. Sharpish, hot mouthfeel. Bitter resiny fruity aftertaste with syrupy toffee notes. Lingering wooden notes. Age has mellowed this into something that’s not exactly easy drinking, but neither is it offensive. Very full of flavour, and not exactly balanced. (0.33l bottle, I have no idea where from. BBD July 2023.)

jspronck (148) - BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2015
Cloudy orange color with white head, hoppy and malt aromas. In mouth, caramel, honey and citrus, sweet, thick creamy texture, strong but surprisingly well hidden ABV

HomerBeerOdysy (74) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2015
APPEARANCE - Opaque, cloudy, no head, some lacing, amber. AROMA/SCENT - Hops, sweet, pine, malts. TASTE - Hops, bitter, pine, nutty, caramel, brown sugar, bread, toffee MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Thick, no carbonation, smooth, creamy, warming, heavy, syrupy. VALUE - $7.99 for 12-oz bottle. Good deal for import? OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - ABV surprisingly well-hidden. I wish there was a bit more carbonation, but what do you expect at ABV 14%?

SG111 (570) - New York, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottled. Drinking this 02/24/15. No idea what the bottling date is. Pours clear orange ruby color. Small white ring of lacing. Aroma is like a really hoppy barleywine. Lots of heat from the 14%. Sweet sticky toffee, some fig and date notes, maybe a bit of burnt sugar, honey, some citrus (orange), grapefruit. Very complex aroma. Flavor is hoppy, boozy, lots of toffee, fig, vanilla notes. Bitter finish. This drinks 100% like a barleywine. Hoppy finish. Reminds me of 21st Amendment’s lower da boom (which is a favorite of mine). I’ve been told this drinks like aged DFH 120. I have never had DFH 120, but that’s supposed to drink like a barleywine over time. This is exactly that. Great beer.

GarrettB (1220) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2015
June 20th, 2013 - Here’s a Double IPA that’s like a delicious, Danish breakfast in a bottle. Why? The aroma chockablock full of tasty early morning ingredients: caramel and sweet apple (pancake toppings) and the very underrated American cereal "Apple Jacks." For the more natural breakfast food consumer, there’s also a nice sliver of mango in the aroma. The flavor brings more carbohydrates, including rye and buckwheat pancakes, and something uncharacteristically breakfast: a heavy booze notes. The aroma and flavor deliver very different experiences, but I enjoy both, and regret seeing the "Retired" tag here.

villevav (340) - FINLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Tuoksussa runsaasti appelsiinia. Todella voimakkaan humaloitu maku; jonkinlainen humalan saturoitumisraja lienee jo saavutettu. Korkea alkoholipitoisuus jättää suuhun hieman suolaisen jälkimaun.
