COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: 512 bottles of 37,5 cl made in the original 2007 version. A later 2009 version was released in 2011.

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.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2012
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.

Samuel214 (494) - SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2016
Flaska från SB. Limited release nr 6. Denna flaska från 2014, dessförinnan lagrad på Niepoort-fat i 24 månader. Djup mahogny-mörkbrun med ett beiget, fingerhögt skum som snabbt lägger sig. Stor, fyllig doft med varma och kryddiga inslag av portvin och madeira. Mycket inlagda körsbär och nötiga toner. Inte superstor kropp som barley wines i denna klassen kan vara, men alldeles lagom för att bära upp smakbilden. Smakmässigt inleds det med nötiga kolatoner och stor sötma som sakta övergår i mer inlagda körsbär och torkade tranbär. Portvinstonerna finns där redan i början men tilltar något en bit in. Fatlagringen har verkligen gjort sig på den här ölen, och det är häftigt att se hur väl det satt sig både i smak och lukt. Det ligger liksom inte på ytan, utan har trängt djupt in i smakbilden och är ruskigt välintegrerad med resten av ölen. Smakbilden i stort är väl sammanhållen med subtila övergångar och överlag oerhört jämn och välintegrerad. I avslutningen nästan lite brända toner från rostade mandlar. Alkoholen värmer och tar precis rätt plats. Nästan 160 spänn flaskan - helt klart värt varenda slant. Nästan så jag ville slänga iväg en beställning på en till flaska på direkten...

rosenbergh (10204) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2016
375 ml bottle. 2007 vintage. Bottled in August 2009.
At my 10k party. Also my RB rating #10,000. Bought in Copenhagen, Denmark 2009.

Dark reddish brown color with no head. Sweet and strong malt, liqueur sweetness, port wine and plum fool in the aroma. Super sweet malt, port wine and dark fruits in the flavor. Smooth and velvety. 12% is there but very positively. A treat.

didierlewallon (282) - ponferrada, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2014
Es una cerveza de un color profundo Marrón rojizo con un debil cabeza de espuma. Aroma a frutos negros, melaza, frutos secos, malta y alcohol. En boca es muy dulce y un poco amarga. Cuerpo medio, textura cremosa. Una excelente cerveza.

Theydon_Bois (16635) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle split at Jack the Ripper tasting, big thanks to Paulo the completist for the 3rd in the Lil Korkney set of 4, 12/05/14. 2007 vintage. Hazed mahogany brown with little in the way of a head. Nose is thinner than the previous versions (base and bourbon), sweet notes, toffee, spice, light boozey stewings, dates, a little musty, figgy jam. Taste comprises soy sauce, more figorama, dark fruit roulade, toffee, spice. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying closed with a lightly oxidised jacket and sweet tongue lashings. Still a drinkable sipper 7 years on but like its bourbon brother feels a little tired. Base beer still the best at 3.6 for me.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Paulio. Pours brown, lightly murky, with a faint, bubbly tan head. The nose has some wet wood, old earth, rotting berries. Nice flavor, lots of gooey fruits, hefty dates, toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm to hot finish with lots of toffee, figs, raisins, toffee, grapes, a bit of tangy wood, cherry. Great depth. Certainly a hearty beer. A true sipping beer. Take it slow.

Scopey (12243) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 2007 bottle, thanks to me. It pours darkest brown with no head whatsoever. The nose is sweet, figgy, raisin, raisin, jam, mega sweet, wood, candy and jam. The taste is sweet, light tang, dark fruits, figgy pudding, jammy, berry, candy, light alcohol, oxidised notes, brown sugar and candy with tangy, sweet finish. Full body, soft carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Soft and smooth. Pretty sweet stuff, but a nice sipper anyhow.
