Danish: En Barley wine på 12% alk. Efter gæring har denne øl lagret i 9 måneder på ståltank, hvorefter den er lagret yderligere 12 måneder på Niepoort fade. Duften i denne ekstremt intense og komplekse øl er domineret af kraftige malttoner, hvor også rosiner og nødder trænger sig på. Smagen er fyldig, vinøs og portvinspræget med blød eg bag. Den lange eftersmag er varm og alkoholisk med en let sødme.

24-MAY-2013, botlle @DØE Ølfestival 2013. Brown/mahogany, clear, no head. Aroma is sweet port, brown sugar, malt, raisins. Taste is fantastic. Port wine, raisins, malt, bread, brown sugar, nuts... Very very sweet and sticky. A touch of tartness. Port wine I guess. Soooo gooood.

Sample from 375 ml. bottle, CBF 2013 from a drunk barman, that refused my token, but stole my glass... Anyway, I got my glass back and was in for a real treat: 2009 Vintage. Deep amber colour with an orange hue. No head, a few white bubbles. Sweet, vinous aroma with dark, overripe fruits, red berries, wood, raisin, nuts and rich caramel malts. Notes of port wine and a bit acidic.. Very complex and rich. Taste is sweet with a tart undertone. Full body, oily texture, flat carbonation. Long lasting sweet and tart finish with the complex aroma ingredients slowly fading away. What an excellent experience, by far the best beer at this years festival!

Woodshed 2.0. Huge thanks to stobbe74 for shipping me this over two years ago. Soeren!! The 2007 vintage bottle pours out with a murky mahogany body supporting a thin tan head of foam. The modest aroma offers up musty cherry, prunes and some molasses. The taste has smooth rich nectar like goodness coming from brown sugar covered prunes and ripe cherries. It gets a touch earthy sherry like to midway and into the finish. Yum, rich smooth blended sipper. Love it.

Bottle generously shared by Ibrew2or3 @ Woodshed 2.0! Dark mahogany pour with a razor thin head. A little syrupy. A little oxidized. Still get some caramel, toffee, dark fruit, vanilla, and malt. 2007 bottling and you can tell...but oh so happy to have tried!

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2013
375ml bottle courtesy of jacob... Pours a murky deeper mahogany with a hint of reddish hue and topped with a very minimal resemblance of a head whatsoever... A lightly vinous red fruit component to a somewhat oxidized and papery malty caramel and toffee barley wine base. Semi-sweet but smooth throughout. Still holding up but oxidation is starting to settle in a bit... Flavors are more of the same with deeper toffee and dark fruit overtones soon to be followed up with a light vinous aspect to it. Smooth although a touch oxidized. Medium bodied or just there above with a lighter level of carbonation. Still fairly good but somewhat past its prime.

sarro (125) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours hazy brown, dark brown center. No head. Nose and palette are comparable with sweet barley and some vanilla, oak, whiskey, slight chocolate fudgy finish. Also some golden raisin and slight oxidation. Full bodied. Sweet. Nice integrated booze and barrel. Drink now!

Bottle 375ml vintage 2007 @ Geokkjer
Pours reddish dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, oxidized, brown sugar and wood. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter with a very sweet and woody finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Bottle shared by Kyle, thanks! Pours a hazy brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice combination of sweet grains and wine with a bit of caramel underlying. Flavor stats with earthy sweet grains with wine and caramel in the finish.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Notes from my backlog: Pours a muddy maroon/deep brown purpleish with a tan film of head. Rich aroma- port, chocolate, sweet tobacco richness, huge malt depth. Big flavor as well. Raisin, vanilla, honeyish maltose sweetness apparent port like notes and mild booze- sweet brandy and tobacco. Huge, but cohesive and somewhat balanced with some nuance.

Cloudy brown beer. Sweet aged malt nose. Light semi dry palate. Boozy malt with a trace of wood, leather and a little bitterness from the Port and subtle minerally dark fruits. Finishes crisp and semi dry with a warming afterglow. The Port shines through here and joins things together very well with the sweet malt.
