Clear dark amber body with a beige creamy head; Very sweet malt syrup nose, backed by a light fruity touch; Very sweet body, actually quite spicy, biting carbonation; Long sweet finish, spicy but I am not sure where it comes from, very lightly smoked aroma. This beer could be way way better.

MrHangover (3807) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black beer with a small ring of off white head on top. Aroma is slightly peaty, roasty, very malty with a hint of boozy smoke. Flavor is sweet, powerful, a touch of smoke and caramel. Very nicely carbonated, short sweetish aftertaste. Quite nice!!

Uit de fles geschonken. Mooi rokerig, zoet aroma. Smaken van rook, gerst, hout, wat kruidig. Een mooie Barley Wine met een zacht rokerig accent. Heerlijk.

bobroman (796) - Torun, POLAND - MAY 26, 2016
Tasted on 17.04.16. Great aroma of dried fruits, reisins, caramel and burned malts. Small head disappearing to thin layer. Clear burgund-brown colour. Intensive liquor maltiness in taste with perfectly hidden alcohol with noticeable, well-balanced bitterness. Very pleasant barley wine, but where is smokiness?

Rami Rami is drinking a Sunturnbrew by Nøgne Ø at Jabeerwocky Faktycznie nieco kisielowe, ladnie zrownowazone, slodkie, fajne, ale nie dla mnie

pivnizub (9978) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2016
Butilka: Deep ruby-amber coloured, stable, but quite small off-white head; sweet-bitter nose of caramel, dried fruits (aka ’port-wine’) with delicate hints of smoke; solid sweet-bitter flavour, soft MF, full bodied; lingering sweet-bitter finish with warming alkohol, more smoke a drier bitterness in the aftertaste. A pretty good winterwarmer…

Piwo ma barwę mocnej herbaty, jest delikatnie opalizujące. Piękna żółta piana, zbita, gęsta i bardzo trwała. W aromacie czuć wędzonkę, torf oraz cytrusy i ziemistość z żyta. W smaku spora rodzynkowa słodycz, karmelowa słodowość, gęstość, oleistość, jest bukowa wędzonka, dojrzałe owoce cytrusowe i tropikalne plus średnia goryczkowo-żywiczna kontra podbita likierowym, rozgrzewającym alkoholem. Niskie nagazowanie, potężne ciało, ogniskowo-oscypkowe nuty w afterteasie i wyklejająca faktura.
Nie lubię oscypkowej wędzonki, w tym piwie jest ona jednak bardzo subtelna i pasuje do niezwykle bogatej i różnorodnej całości.

jawlo (374) - Katowice, POLAND - APR 21, 2016
Aromat: rodzynki, tosty i wędzonka, średnio intensywnie. Wygląd: dość obfita piana, beżowa, barwa miedziana. Smak: słodka intensywna wędzonka, w tle karmel, rodzynki i tosty, średnia goryczka. Tekstura: dość pełne, wysycenie umiarkowane. Ogólne wrażenie: dobre piwo, spora wędzonka na mocnej słodowej podbudowie, ciekawa interpretacja barley wine, raczej degustacyjne.

karpik (512) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 16, 2016
Peat, raisins, plums, caramel in aroma. Pours dar brown with perfect beige head. Taste is medium sweet with dark fruits, some caramel, peat and bread. Finish is medium bitter, body is full, alcohol is hidden extremely well. Overall this one matched my high expectations. Great beer.
