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

23,5P, 80 IBU, 10% ABV.

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

Barley wine, mooie donkere kleur, in het begin een rustige, zoete smaak met op het einde een smaakexplosie van hop die je kan verassen.

Hazy medium brown with medium head. Bread, dates and other fruit, some barley. Licorice, toast malt, hops, coffee. Thick, viscuous and full-bodied. Sweetness comes out as it warms a bit.

Slautar (507) - Gdask, POLAND - MAR 26, 2016
Pułapka 25.03.2016. Bardzo przyjemny aromat kwiatw, miodu i słodu. Smak niestety nie zachwycił. W moim odbiorze piwo było nieprzyjemnie gorzkie i mdłe (w porwnaniu do innych BW, ktre piłem). Skromne ciałko rwnież nie zadziałało na korzyść. Cieszyłem się, że kupując to piwo wybrałem najmniejszą możliwą pojemność.

mgajdaczewa (1673) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 22, 2016
W aromacie karmel, suszone owoce, wyraźna gruszka, niuanse czekolady z orzechami (dość ciemne jak na styl), złożony i arcyprzyjemny. W smaku płpełne, nieco likierowe, suszone owoce, karmel, ponownie coś na pograniczu dojrzałego jabłka i gruszki. Nieco cierpkie w posmaku, nieco kakaowe, to jedyna rzecz, ktra psuje nieco całokształt. Ale generalnie miodzio.

50cl bo9ttle served in a teku. Pours deep garnet with a foamy white head. Aromas of dank hops with a heavy malt presence. A thick, syrupy mouthfeel with an almost burnt butterscotch maltiness which gives way to a nice and resiny hop finish. Well balanced between sweet and malt but still quite a spiky and unfinished taste. Very nice when youre in the mood for it but a tad on the sweet side for me.
