ErnieBall (4) - SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2013 does not count
The taste of jamaican rum (cane sugar) takes over the overall taste to much. My expectations of this beer was fare much higher due to the many other good tasting beers that comes from Nils Oscar.

Nische (896) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2013
Pours clear and copper with a small white head. Aroma is figs, pine, hints of caramel. The taste is sweet, mostly with only a hint of bitter, body is very light for a barleywine which is probably why I like it.
