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 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!

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!

Defreni (2919) - 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.

Bottle. Murky brown with no head. Dark dried fruits, brown sugarness and some light sourness in the nose. Flavour has coffee, syrup, grain, wood, port. Medium body, oily texture, no carbonation, sweet, light bitter. Uneventful and flat.

dnstone (2453) - 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.

RasmusOtt (2001) - 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!

Tried at Woodshop 5.0. Very nice. Very sweet. Sherry oxidation is wonderful. Light booziness is well hidden. Very good.

(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.
