4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 2011 vintage. Amber colour, small off-white head which disappears quickly.
Lovely aroma of caramel, butterscotch, dark fruits, cinnamon and bread. Complex taste. Sweet malts, maybe a bit smokey. Bitter aftertaste...
2010 vintage (2013 march): Sweeter, more fruits, less caramel. Less bitterness than 2011. Aroma reminds me a lot of port wine. Enjoyable but I prefer 2011.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light hop aroma. The flavor of berries and caramel. Weak bitterness that is trapped in front of the mouth a weak moment. I thought this beer would be much better. Vintage 2012. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Pours reddish brown with a small, light beige head. The aroma is dominated by raisins, plums, some barley and a slight boozy note. Medium-sweet on the flavour, but the plums dominate completely. Still rather fresh with some complexity and decent finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
25 cl. bottle, enjoyed with a good cheese plate. Delicious. Clear, amber colour with a small, off-white head. Sweet aroma with rich caramel malts, fruits, light alcohol, grape and nuts. Taste is sweet. Full body with an oily feel and a soft carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter with resins, fruits and grasses. Nice BW and a good cheese pairing.

0,25l bottle @ Bryggeri. Pours clear brown with a very low head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel and alcohol. Disappointingly light flavor is sweet malts, caramel, alcohol and some hops. Decent but could be better.

Backlog. Tried on bottle. Bought from Systembolaget when it was available. A hint to sweet for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber body, almost no head. Fresh fig, dried fruit, rum like sweetness, light amber malts. Taste is more pungent, concentrated flavours of sweetness of sticky fruit. Fairly short ending. More English Aromatic and Flavourful than new style concentrated thickness and molasses. Great classic barley wine if only the aroma would have been a bit more rich too. (25cl bottle brought from Uppsala by Bertanne, many thanks!)
