3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
660ml bottle pours a copper color with a small white head that leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is caramel and lighter fruits with some grapefruit hops. Taste is a bold grapefruit hop bitterness with some tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness and a hint of alcohol with a grainy finish. Medium to heavy body with mild carbonation. Overall, this is like a hoppy barley wine and I really enjoyed sampling this one.

Lightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is earthy hops, barley wine vibes, bitter citric peel, candyfloss.
Taste comprises melon, grapefruit, orange pith, spice, earthy hop presence, caramelised sugars.
Medium + body, fine carbonation, punchy citricana in the close.
Still very drinkable at 3 years old, turning towards a barley wine.

Bottle shared at the Rate Beer European Summer Gathering on 09/08/14. From brief notes… Dark sticky fruity aroma. Medium to full body. Sweet, though there is also a bit of an odd sour edge to this... A little shabby.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
660mL bottle, 9.5%abv. Pours an orange amber, tiny white head that dissipates quickly. Big sherbert and grapefruit aroma, can tell from the nose that this is going to be fairly well balanced with caramel and toffee to combat the bitterness, taste equals that along with some booze burn. Carbonation is off a bit, not that I want too much but this needs a bit more, can make the case that it too closely resembles a Barleywine with this little carbonation. Finish is pure hoppy bitterness with booze burn.

On tap at Øltorget Mathallen, september 3rd 2013. Hazy dark orange body, foamy offwhite head. Aroma of tropical fruit, strawberry, caramel malt. Taste is quite malty with pineapple and oranges, thick body with a lasting sweetness. Ends on the sweet side with toffee and apricot jam. A bit too sweet for me, but still a nice beer.
