Hazy amber pour with a white head. Rich aromas of tropical fruits. Flavours of pineapple, red apples and mango. Sweet fruit linger on the palate. Quite a throat warmer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap@Mikkeller Bar, CPH - (listed as 11.4% on board) fuzzy amber pour with off-white head. Aroma and taste is sweet malty and fruity, pretty citrus fruity prominent then the usual dark dried fruits, mandarin and lemon peel, some caramel toffee, surprisingly different experience for a barley wine, tasty and enjoyable nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey golden colour with late awakening, average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Herbal, piney, hoppy aroma, malty background with hints of toffee, dried fruit and orange zest. Taste is initially moderately sweet malty, immediately countered by intense bitter hop notes, minimally tart; lasting, slightly biting and burning alcoholic finish. Intense but overall mild and balanced.

Bottle shared with wyzzywyz22 on his birthday, in Wallasey. Orange coloured with a small off white head. Aroma is hops, tropical fruit, flavour is similar, nice hop bitterness, malts compliment well. I too don’t think this is a barley wine, tasty beer it is though.

Orange fruits - apricot, citrus rind and mango. Uber sweet with vanilla and honey as well. Seems a bit flat, but otherwise solid BW.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a deep golden orange with a thick off white head. Sticky lacing around the glass. Nose is a pine Forrest with grainy cereal malts. Fuck this smells fresh even after a year of aging! Taste is predominantly pine and grapefruit with the grainy malts coming through. Thick mouthfeel, pine is coating my palate. Booze isn't overly evident must be due to the aging. This is winner for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a dark blonde color ale with a medium size foamy head with limited retention and some light lacing. Aroma of grainy cereal notes with quite bit of sweetness. Taste is also dominated by grainy cereal notes with some dry notes with quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is about average with medium carbonation and light warming alcohol. Interesting experience but just too sweet for me at the end of the day.

One of the best barleywine style that I have ever tasted. Girlfriend, father in law and mother-in-law says that we can repeat this experience. Delicious.
