Cask from the Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. A reddish amber pour with a thin round white head. A fairly weak aroma of dry yeast. The flavour is very yeasty with fruity and bitter notes on the palate. A superb ale.

I drank this after a few, so I can’t say I have very good notes on this. Either way, I remember a nice balance between sweetness and hop bitterness. Great fruity aroma, lots of tropical fruits and yeasty esters. Like a really good imperial IPA, but with a controlled bitterness. The alcohol was well hidden too. Delicious.

Fatbira på Biskoppen Savoy. Oj doftar vinöst rejält med torkade frukter. Aj aj ångrar nu jag köpte. Smakar fylligt fruktigt och mycket vin . Starkvin. Nää en Öl är det väl tveksamt. Saknar rejäl högkvalitativ Barely Wine som Great Divide tillverkar tex. Attans

Une bière dorée teintée de cuivre est coiffée d’une mousse bien onctueuse qui laisse une jolie dentelle derrière elle. Des restants d’houblons résineux appuient des céréales sucrées rappelant le sucre d’orge au nez. Quelques notes végétales sont également de la partie. Les saveurs caramélisées sont réconfortantes, quelques notes d’agrumes sont également dignes de mention. Chaque gorgée colle au palais. Le corps est souple et pas trop envahissant. Une amertume qui traîne longuement en finale ferme la marche. Un produit fort agréable à déguster.

bastarda (290) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2016
kindly shared by Oldmanriver, thanks a lot for another experimental cellar treasure. Oscillating between an IIPA and a Barleywine. Aromas of yellow stone fruit, cotton candy, marshmallows, hints of coconut and vanilla, alcohol whafts. More complex sweetness in taste, with fruity, tropical hops and coconut in alcoholically high spirits. Delicious, decadent and way too sweet.

Batavi (264) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2016
Fles 75 cl. gekocht bij firmabier.nl, gedeeld, en uitgeschonken in 33 cl. Struise glazen. Troebel oranjekleurig bier met, zeker voor een Barley Wine, een hoge en luchtige, crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma’s lijken erg op een Imperial IPA. Fruitige hoptonen van grapefruit, mango, lychee, gedroogde abrikozen, karamel en pijnboom. Smaakpallet is bitter en zoet, mooi in balans. Tonen van tropisch fruit en citrusfruit met name mango, lychee, perzik, mandarijn en limoen, aangevuld met zoete tonen van karamel, toffee, en gedroogde abrikozen. De afdronk is droog en hopbitter. Een erg smaakvolle Barley Wine, met veel kenmerken van een double IPA. 3e bier uit deze serie, die ik proef na de Majsgoop en de Boogoop. Deze versie is zeker net zo goed, met slechts subtiele smaakverschillen, lijkt iets lichter van smaak, waarschijnlijk door het gebruik van rijst. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good stuff. Surprisingly hoppy and citric in the beginning but followed up by a sweet, boozy barley wine sensation. Surprisingly good.

CaptainTilven (97) - Nancy, FRANCE - NOV 27, 2015
Tasted at la Capsule (Nancy - France). Golden amber body headed by a not lasting white foam; sparkling in the beginning. Aroma of grapefruit and exotic fruit : lychee and dried mango. Begins quite smoothly, but quickly dry, resinous, astringent, grounded by nuts and sweet orange. Splendid balance.

Botella 75 cl tomada en el momento en llamas. 31..10..2015. Fcpref 14..11..2017. (r224). Color marrón claro con bastante espuma beige que desaparece al poco casi por completo. Aromas y sabores maltosos tostados azucarados con toques de maderas y gran sensación de licor. Cuerpo medio a intenso fino y ligeramente espumoso. 10.4 vol que se notan en todo momento. Amargo seco final prolongado. Bastante buena, compejos aromas y sabores intensos en todo momento. Para repetir sin duda.

Gerbeer (2672) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2015
On tap. Pours a reddish Amber with full head. Aromas of fruity sweet malts, dried oranges and rubber. Flavors of toffee, dark fruit esters, candied grapefruit and sour dough. Great.

colui72 (488) - HONG KONG - NOV 5, 2015
Murky orange with thin white head. Aroma is fruit and hops. Tastes fantastic like the best IPA: peach, mango, apricot, malts and lots of hops. O dear... what a fantastic treat!
