3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Fermentoren. Cloudy orange coloured body. Fragile layer at the top. Bittersweet aroma, some resin and some tropical fruits. Dried and fresh fruits in fine harmony to the taste buds added by a backbone of semi-sweet malts. Lingering, dry bittersweet ending. Decent nightcap (Copenhagen, 21.05.2013).

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Stated as barley wine but looks, smells and tastes like a great DIPA. Main factor for me is that cheese aroma that’s so satisfyingly funky! Pouring golden amber slightly cloudy. Big big off white head dissipating slowly. Massive citrus and funk on the nose, brie and pine. Gloriously smooth on the palate with pine, peach and funky shenanigans. Exceeded expectations!!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich hop aroma, grapefruit, floral and a great hop mix. Sharp hop taste, rich taste, warming. Orange body, small soapy head. Stunning brew, complex and powerful. At only one coin, was perhaps my festival favourite. (ZeeBra)
