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.

Red mahogany color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of red wine, dark fruits, caramel, wood, vanilla, and faint alcohol. Taste of dark fruits, caramel, light nuts, vanilla, red wine, and finishing with resiny wood and light alcohol. This expression is head and shoulders above the regular Little Korkey I had bottled years before this.

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.

(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.

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

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.

Bottle, bought @ Nørrebro Bryghus.
Dark brown, no real head. Lovely aroma, port, vinious, chocolate, raisins, figs, plums. Lovely mouthfeel, impressively creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is incredibly put together. Chocolate, oak, port (is apparent), notes of coffee, plums, raisins, chocolate. This is truly impressive. Holy sh** Sweet, elegant, well-balanced. Fuck all!

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...

Fantastic port barrel beer. Great to have something else than bourbon barrel. This is so much more enjoyable.
