4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared bottle at Bjorleik, Bergen. Courtesy of Tor Ivar Lyse. Wow! What a barley wine. Really well balanced and rich aromas and flavors. Aged a couple of years. Will brew a clone of this recipe. One of the best barley wines I’ve tried, smooth alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 6-25-2011 (Bottle) This beer forms a small tan head that mostly diminishes, hazy orange body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, lots of floaties, and no lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus hops, fruity, and alcohol. The taste is sweet, caramel malt, fruity, citrus hops, alcohol, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is tingly carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a very dry finish and is a sipping beer. It is worth trying.

I wouldn’t say I don’t like it, but I probably wouldn’t seek it out again. It’s good, but tastes a little too much like cough syrup for me.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thin head which dissipates quickly. Powerful and scrumptious aroma with lots of sweet malts, toffee, raisins, butterscotch and some wood overtones. Cloudy dark mahagony brown. Sweet and delicious flavor with lots of caramel, toffee, oak and a bit of resinous hops. Full flavored, complex and silky smooth in the mouth. Noticable alcohol presence and warming. Finishes sweet and malty with a nice alcohol tang. A brew that I have really enjoyed drinking! Need to find me some more of these.

500ml bottle to snifter. Pours caramel cola color with a quick tight foamy khaki head that leaves a wispy film. Aroma has soft sweet caramel malt and muted dull hops.Taste is faded booze sweet toasted malt which leaves caramel characteristics and a dulled hop flavor with a spice/pepper finish. Palate is full slick and drying with a warming finish. I like it, even though it is a bit dusty.
