Had this beer at Nørrebro Bryghus In Copenhagen. The one I had was a 2008 vintage. It pours dark and hazy. The aromas are sweet and strong, with almost port like notes. The taste is complex... VERY complex! This is more something you would share like a fine wine. It goes extremely well with dessert. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

onceblind (7480) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2016
2008 bottle. Hazy deep plummy Amber/brown hue with a fast evaporating head even when poured with viguor. Earthy raisin and a a boozy dark malt nose. Big flavor that’s malty and dark stone fruity, boozy, earthy and not very sweet. Just plum and boozy dark bready Barleywine and English malts. Surprisingly not very keen.

glennmastrange (2681) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Bottle. Heavy roasted, caramel and toffee for the malt, moderate cooked orange for the hops, moderate leather and broth for the yeast, with notes of sherry, date, brown sugar and cigarette tobacco. Head is small, fizzy, tan, with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is muddy dark brown. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately to heavily sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is medium to full, syrupy with a soft to lively carbonation and a heavily alcoholic finish. A nice rich, savory and sweet Barley Wine.

ineedbeer (1857) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Poured from a 2008 vintage bottle. Aroma is full of raisin, prune and other dried fruit. Moderately strong toffee and caramel notes with some light burnt sugar character. Hints of a woodsy hop character. Pours a slightly hazy brown with some red hues and a small, thick, tan head that recedes to the edges and lingers. No lacing and small legs. A slight gusher (more of a foamer) on opening. Flavor is moderately sweet with lots of caramel and some lighter toffee notes. Some raisin and prune notes. Light notes of dried cherries. Some light alcohol character. Hints of chocolate. Medium bitterness with some light woody hop notes. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright barleywine and pretty nice for the age. A but flabby with some oxidation showing, but on the whole it’s nice. I’m not sure I enjoy the lingering hop character though and feel like it would be better off if it faded away completely.

Frax (60) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle from Bacco. 2008. Pours a deep amber with no head. Barley and dough, slightly nutty aroma. Whisky flavor with honey notes. Strong malts. Whisky lingers long through the finish. Solid but unremarkable.

luttonm (4727) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2016
2008 bottle at Uber, Seattle. Rich deep brown, lots of red, oddly fishy (?) aroma. Juile says cat food. Fortunately, tastes much better. Rich, complex, butterscotch alcohol, hits your nose. Lovely richness, delicious. Really rich, deep caramel, fudgy malt. Great.

TorbenJensen (1464) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2015
It has subtle fruity aroma. Deep fruity flavor with distinct peach, plum and dried fruits. A little caramel helps to highlight a long fruity aftertaste. Very vinous and warming. Still a little too alcoolic taste in my opinion, otherwise very good.

Nische (1915) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2015
2008 vintage. Pours hazy brown, with a nice creamy head. Aroma is a nice roasted malt, with a good sweet touch of caramel. Flavour is quite dark, with plums and figs, some vanilla notes ending with that lasts forever. Wow.

From old notes. From tap at Copenhagen Olfestival 2012. Dark amber copper color with beige head. Malty aroma, caramel, dark fruits, some citrus fruits too. Sweet and light bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2015 Wow - her er en øl der vil noget. Spændende smag. Jeg tror den bliver endnu bedre når den har ligget et par år. For høj alkohol pct
