Good aroma of smoked sausage as well. Easy drinking for being eleven percent alcohol. Nice beer. Thanks robert for sharing! Part two... Drank this beer at home... Smoke bomb! Sugary, meaty, smokey taste. Nice sipping beer after a long weekend of work

Defreni (2644) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2009
Flaske: Meget røget duft på denne klassisk udseende barley wine. Virkelig balanceret og nuanceret med den megen røg, alkoholen og det let vinøse præg. Super øl.

50 cl bottle at 3 Små Rum, Göteborg
Batch 400, BB 21 12 10
On May 13, 2009
Dark reddish brown color, small tan head. Spicy, phenolic and alcohol scent. Salty, thick, spicy, alcohol taste. Dry, rosated, alcohol aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel. Firey warming alcohol. Medium bitterness. Also a salty licorice taste in there.
Would have liked it better had it been around 8% ABV or so, alcohol way too overpowering as of now.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2010 Bottle, thanks to Fredrik. Dark brown, with a small beige head. Aroma of smoke, charcuteries, some caramely malt, nuts and liquorice. Flavour is rather sweet, but att the same time smoky with liquorice, nuts, and caramel. Fullbodied, rather smooth mouthfeel, with a nice soft carbonation. Nice beer!
