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.

A dark brown beer with a small off white head. An aroma of malt, port, nuts, caramel, sweets, spice and wood. A flavor of malt, sweets, nuts, caramel, spice and wood. Damn nice!

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2011
0.6l bottle from the LCBO. Appearance: Pours an opaque black with a tiny, frothy head that dissipated quickly. Aroma: Very sweet, notes of honey, vanilla, strong hints of grape, cherries, other fruits. Smells fantastic. Palate: thick (but not too thick), creamy, incredibly rich, more carbonation than expected. Very pleasant. Taste: very sweet, slightly bitter, medium saltiness, not sour at all. Very complex taste, lots of fruity notes, but also a fantastic aftertaste that is a strange mixed of roasted nuts, oatmeal and caramel, with a slight hint of chocolate. Incredible ale.

RasmusOtt (2182) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2014 Pours a hazy dark amber. Aroma is filled with dark nuances from different fruits (figs, prunes and raisins) and malts along with a very vinous smell. In the taste I got figs, prunes, dates, raisins, nuts, port wine, and some warming alcohol at the end! Really nice brew from Nørrebro!

Habanero (3903) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2010
Bottled. Pours hazy, deep mahogany brown with a littel, short lasting, beige head. Flat carbonation. Nose of vanilla, roasted malt, wood, dark fruit and earthy, port notes. Sweet flavour of caramel, honey, raisins, plums and riped figs. Oily texture. A little malt bitterness in the end. Just enjoyable.

Defreni (2983) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2010
Flaske: Rødbrun uden en skumkrone. Men den manglende karbonering er ikke et stort problem da det er en fadlagret barleywine. Duften er sød med kraftige toner af portvin og sødlig malt. Smagen er nuancer af sødme der igen bygger udfra portvin med tørret frugt og en anelse træ. Fin fin øl.

oh6gdx (24928) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2010
Bottled (from Ölkonsortiet). Very deep ambery brown colour, close to opaque, small beigeish brown head. Aroma is plum, some raisins, mild nuttyness as well as some winelike notes. Also some mild spicyness. Flavour is mildly toasted, some raisins, nuts, smoked wood as well as some rather plummy notes. As it warms up it gets more wooden and vanillaish. Brutally nice. Quite different from the other Barrel Aged Little Korknys... More? Yes please.

(on bottle) This might be one of the best BWs I´ve had. Very complex and smooth, the mix of heavy beer and the port is present in such a fine aroma; I could snif the whole bottle dry, did I not have such a weak personality. Tart woody notes, soft with vanilla, wet leather, and fresh figs, combined with he rich maly and robust alcohol is great. Just a slight carbonation to swrl all the goodiness up. Draw a thick curtain of lacing on the glass, the taste is also hols liqouríce, some dried fruits; over al, a more heavy profile, wich the alcoholwarmth really compliments beautifully. Long and warm finish, some tobaco and more leather/port It´s simply a gem of a beer.
