Our 100th batch, brewed for the enjoyment of the brewers, but popular demand forced us to release it commercially. Most enjoyable in a comfortable chair in front of a roaring fire.

Recommended serving temperature 16°C/61°F Ingredients: Maris Otter, wheat, and chocolate malt; Columbus, Chinook, and Centennial hops; English ale yeast, and our local Grimstad water.

23,5°P, 80 IBU, 10% ABV.

Editor’s note: Even though the label says "Barley Wine" in the States, the brewery usually says it’s brewed to be an IIPA. The American label was supposedly a glitch. In Europe it’s sold as an IIPA. But to save the admin crew some time dealing with user feedback, it’s listed as a Barley Wine.

OleR (4597) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle. Nice dark ruby body with a dense frothy beige head. Good lacing. Lots of fresh hops in the aroma. Also grapefruit, yeast, pine, raisins and caramel. Hop bitter flavor balanced with sweetish roasted malts and warming alcohol. Long delicate bitter finish. A very nice and tasty fullbodied IPA.

sunevdj (3052) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2007 Pours brown with a tanned head. Super dry. Mildly piny. Tiny hint of liquirish in the malt profile. Very full bodied. Strong fruityness and alcohol flavors. Low carbonation. Long dry finish with a small hint of alcohol. Nicely balanced ´cause I like IIPAs on the hoppy side. Maybe a bit too much alcohol. (but I´ll bet that that is not so apparent if you are on the 3rd/4th beer.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 (Bottle at Plan B, Copenhagen) Pours hazy brown with floaters. Medium sand coloured head. Aroma of chocolate and violets.Grassy/flowery hops. Notes of fudge. A tiny warm smell of clorine/alcohol. The flavour is chocolate, alcohol and some swedish julmust. Bitter hop ending. Medium body. Some liquorice. Second try: Pours dark red to drown. Flowery, piny aroma with violet and chocolate. Big malty backdrop. Undertones of grapefruit, lime, orange and some caramel. Pretty smooth moutfeel. Bitter flavour with orange chocolate, flowers, pine and grapefruit. Pretty unique (I)IPA because of the well notable chocolate tones. Marsiblursi likes!
