4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another great treat from Norway, imported by an Ontario company (keep ’em coming) at the LCBO. Pours a beautiful ruby-amber colour with a big frothy beige head that stays long and gives out thick patchy lacing. Tiny particles floats away. Kind of a mild soapy hop aroma with some soft yeast, dark fruits (prunes, plums), alcohol and light chocolate. Silky smooth mouthfeel, medium-full bodied. Starts off with the dark fruits, then a nice bitterness kicks in to finally show some caramel and maple syrup. All with the hop lingering in the back (grapefruit notes). A really nice cross between an Imperial IPA and Barleywine.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chestnut brown color with cream-coloured head. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine needles. Taste is very influenced by the hops. As a result, more bitter than a Barley Wine is normal.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours brown with a small head, lots of floating yeast chunks.
Nose shows pine needles, spicy hops, heavy sweet malt, reminiscent of malt extract. Also some burnt sugar.
Pretty similar flavours, massive amounts of sweet malt with some toasty notes backed by heaps of piny and spicy hops.

This is a great beer. Poured from a bottle. Doesn’t taste like a barley, more like a ipa. Tart finish.

Thick malts, Christmassy, brown ale like but heavier on the alcohol and hops. Rih taste, heat, sharp ending. Expected more freshness. On the other hand, it is a very long lasting beer. You can sip this for a night. Sharing is the key...(50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Bottle. Opaque ruby red with a moderately lasting off white head. Aroma of toffee, nut, orange peel, some spice, red fruits, pine. Taste is of toffee, orange, pine, honey, hint of spice, red fruit, strawberry, cherry, some heat from the alcohol on the finish. Really smooth, full bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Lovely.
