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.

375ml bottle. Cloudy mahogany brown color with minimal head. Toffee port aroma with loads of dark fruit. Big port and vinous flavor with sweet toffee notes and some oak. Damn tasty. Smooth and full on the palate with low carbonation. Very impressive.

dnstone (2524) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Malty aroma with light port notes. Deep hazy amber in color with an off-white head. A sweet barleywine with cherry/port edges. A bit syrupy, but excellent.

Review # 3000, batch 2007, bottle... dark brown, a bit of mahogany, no head on the pour, light watery tan head barely visible after... the smells outstanding, fresh sweet malt, dark but sweet fruits - alcohol soaked prunes, cherries, red wine, rotten dark fruits, sweet alcohol notes, complex and perfectly balanced... the taste isn’t as balanced sadly, but still pretty damn good, the dark fruits really show but they are restrained not sweet, oak comes through a bit harsh, alcohol does too but not in a sweet spirit way as expected, a bit hot on the finish... I had the bourbon was better than this, but to me the bourbon is the best and one of most unappreciated beers out there

skortila (5161) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle, 2007. The aroma has wine/port, dark fruits, raisins, wood, yeast. Hazy, reddish dark amber coloured beer with a slightly off-white head. The taste is fruity malty, has wine, caramel, wood and is a little sour. Lingering taste. Full body. Warming. Very nice.

hopdog (11196) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2011
2007 bottle. Poured a brown color with a small sized off white head. Vinous / port, dark fruits, wood, vanilla, and caramel. Side x side with the ’07 Cognac - this one blew the other away.

Damico (3138) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2011
The beer pours dark chestnut brown with an off white had. The aroma is an aged ale with that aged evolved aroma in the nose. The flavor is a medium sweet malty body with some light booze and sweet notes.

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle, 2007 vintage. A rim of beige bubbles sits on top of a clear, reddish brown body. Dried fruits, hints of cellar and oak, and alcohol hits the nose. It’s quite warming on the palate, with sweetness, dried fruits, a touch of caramel and some oak. Full body. Alcohol and dried fruits in the end. Yet another lovely beer from Nørrebro’s barrel project. 110513
