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.

Bottle. Almost identical to cognac-version. Frothy white fair mostly deminishing head. red-amber colour. Light malty and hoppy intense aroma. Light sweet and moderate bitter vinius flavor. Long nice finish. Creamy palate. Again too expensive and a little boring.

Wow, this was a pleasant surprise. Thanks a lot, Tom. Not much head on it, brown pour. Boozy port smell on the nose, plus toffee and dried fruit sweetness. The flavor follows suit, sweet, syrupy and loaded with sticky dried fruits. Some nice vanilla notes are also apparent. Good complexity, with the boozy port flavors cutting the sweetness a bit. Definitely a novel and enjoyable experience for me.

Hansen (8242) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
A good beer, but too much alcohol. Dark brown and clear. Has an off-white head, mostly diminishing. Alcohol and soft malt in the aroma. Flavor is heavy sweet, lots of alcohol.

Bottle. Medium head with medium duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are fruits, yeast, malt and hops. Quite vinous.

Bottle. Deep burgundy red with a small tanned head that leaves minimal lacings. The smell is intense and deep with heavy malt aromas and powerful notes of vinous fruit, oak barrel and toffee. Hints of cookie dough and warming alcohol. Lovely aroma. The taste his almost even more intense. The flavor is sweet and malty with rich caramel notes, toffee and powdered chocolate. Some toasty notes. Lovely port barrel character and vinous fruity notes (ripe plums, grapes). Some spicy and tannic bitterness. The finish packs a bit of punch from the alcohol and is nicely warming with pleasant oak flavors, spices and malts. With it’s full bodied and very smooth texture, this is a great sipper.

375ml bottle from DK. Did a big tasting of 5 barley wines and this one came out on top. Pours dark brown with minimal tan head. Nose of nice port notes, raisin, and wood. Taste very sweet with more port notes, raisin, caramel. Very smooth finish, and overall beautifully balanced.

Tasting with Shaun Hill at Three Penny Taproom - Poured a clear, dark reddish-amber in color with a very small off white head that produced some small lacing on the glass (and could be reproduced by swirling). Aroma is slightly sweet, vinous and very complex with roasted malts, port wine, light oak, nuts and dark fruit. Flavor was malty to begin with plenty of roasted malts, caramel, dark fruits, woody oak and port wine... again, lots going on here. As the beer warmed, it reminded me of an excellent tawny port. This is a really excellent beer and my favorite of the tasting flight.

Hazy burgundy with a tiny off white head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, toffee and caramel notes. Flavour had roasted malt, caramel, toffee, port, nuts and warming alcohol. Finished sweet.

It’s dark red mahogany with a creamy head. The aroma is vinous and delicious with notes of roasted malt, raisin, dark fruits, port wine, wood and chocolate. The moutfeel is quite oily. The flavor is sweet and vinous with notes of roasted malt, caramel, raisin, port wine, dark fruit, wood and very light hints of alcohol. It’s truly nice and very well balanced, I like it a lot...
