Defreni (2618) - 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.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - APR 26, 2009
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!

Bottle at the Molen, Thanks Menno. Aroma has fruitiness, malts, some roast and a hint of smoked bacon. Clear, dark brown coloured beer with a beige head. The taste is sweet, has some bitterness, malty with some fruitiness and perhaps some spice. Very subtle beer. Well done.

KM (336) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 14, 2009
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black body. Small off white head. Strong hoppy aroma, combined with a strong maltiness, and clear hints of good russian vodka. And of course some smoke. Very complex flavour. First a lot of smoke, then a thick malty licorice flavour. Short finish, not very sweet. Was better in the beginning than in the finish. (Den Gode Nabo, Trondheim, 07.04.09)

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle, at Patricks Pub, Kristiansand. It’s a reddish, dark brown beer, hazy, with a finger-thick beige head. Roasted malts, some licorice, sweetness, a smoked note with bacon, some dried fruit and a little dose of fresh fruits. Coffee, some alcohol, smoked malts, a little chocolate, a faint note of licorice and a good sweetness in the flavor. Full-bodied and warming. Fine carbonation. Long finish with the flavors found initially. Just lovely. (090312)
