4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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!
