COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously Nils Oscar Karl-David 70 Celebration Ale at 9.4%.

Med samma recept har man redan firat ägarens 70-årsdag, vunnit guld- samt två silvermedaljer på Stockholm Beer Festival i oktober 2012. Det är en Barley Wine fullproppad med smak. Här rymmer hela 7 olika sorters malt och oraffinerat socker från vackra Mauritius som givetvis leder tankarna mot rom. Vidare är den humlad med Sorachi, Cascade, Magnum och Fuggles. Självklart tål den att lagras några år.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, - FEB 2, 2013
Bottled. Crystal clear copper color with low head. Rich sweet malty nose, with hints of toffee and dried fruits. Semi-mature aromas here. Buttery yeast character and sweet maltiness with caramel on medium levels. Full bodied with lots of potential yet to come with maturation.

CloakedDagger (1867) - - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear pale amber with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts and alcohol. Sweet, malty body, lowish carbonation. Caramellish warming alcohol, nicely balanced between malts and alcohol. A very straight BW with a malt focus - nothing too challenging. 100816

SvanteL (257) - SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad med litet skum som lägger sig snabbt. I doften finns trä, dadlar, toffé och Pommac plus en liten vinös ton. Smaken är maltig med torkade dadlar och aprikoser, tydlig fatkaraktär, lite pomeransbeska som avslutning, mycket vinös och lite tjock i konsistensen. En mycket fin barley wine i klassisk engelsk stil.

aenima (333) - Askim, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2016
Toffe, wood like aroma. The taste is light caramel with some citrus in the background. Some residual sweetness. This reminds me of a west coast barley with but not with the usual hop flavour.

NordicV (1932) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2016
Gyllengul öl med ett lättare vitt skum. Doft av malt, karamell, viss nötighet och alkoholsötma. I smaken tillkommer bröd, muscovadosocker och fruktighet.

Pedro_Pinho (155) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2016
Celebration 2015 @ 9,9 ABV. Clear amber liquid with thin head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Nice barley wine taste at start, but this gets dominated by the alcohol. It has aging potential, but right now is a bit unbalanced.

Bamsen78 (5010) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle, as Nils Oscar Celebration 2015, 9.9% to celebrate the end of 2015 in Jönköping, Sweden :-) Pours hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of caramel and touches of yeast and hops. Sweetish flavour of fruit and caramel malt, with bitter notes of hops and metal. Bitter-sweet aftertaste. Okay but rather potent.
