Bottle @ Olbutikken, Copenhagen. After a few boring beers from the brewery this beer made me remember why I use to love Nogne O so much a few years back. Pours unclear brown with a creamy head and lacing. Nose and taste is sweet and vinous. Dark fruits, a bit of alcohol and chewy malts. Full bodied. A bit of warmth. Good drinkability. Nice

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
350ml draught, my second of three big beers at Olympen where the ale was served at the very right drinking temperature. Brown-reddish body with a slight haze. More or less naked on the surface. Smell of sweet prunes and raisin. Dried apricots in flavour added by plums and prunes and underlying malts. Lingering bittersweet finish. Modest spicy alcoholic heating. Full bodied, but still refreshing and quite easy to drink. Rather satisfactory with the ox ribs (Oslo, 13.10.2009).

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draugth@Olympen, Oslo. Beautiful apperance; Dark ruby colored with good clarity. Low, big-bubbled tan head fading to a ring of foam. Discreet and subtle malt aroma with toffee and nut notes. Also a fine fruit scent, and a whiff of mild spices and alcohol. Taste has a pure, gentle sweetness, has a rounded, lightly toasted malt body, with a pleasant fruitiness below. Some pepper notes. Properly hopped. Soft and smooth in the mouth. Medium to full body. Clean, malty-bitter ending. This English style BW is extremely well balanced, with rounded and subtle aromas and flavors. A harmonious and elegant beer, and there is more to come... this is still a very young one. Yummie!

Bottle, courtesy of a hardcore Danish crew
Cloudy dark amber color, small head. Simple aroma. Some simple caramel flavor, sweet, a bit nutty; the last thing I could thing about is Barley Wine. The final is bitter enough, but also alcoholic. Disappointing.

Botella. Served in a nice balloon glass. Hazy deep brown orange colour. Sweet spiced hoppy alco aroma. Ok mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet and quite spiced with bitter hops, alcohol, caramel and some dark fruits. Well lasting spiced alco sweet bitter hoppy finish. Seems it would be better by aging a more.
