KennethArd (327) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2015
Vintage Beer 2008 bottle no. 3161. Roasty aroma of fudge & milk chocolate. Hazy amber color with no head. Medium sweet taste but the alcohol is unfortunately too much in focus which takes brings it out of balance. Medium body, oily texture & soft carbonation.

Svesse (7033) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2015
(Bottle, as "Vintage Beer 2008") Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, syrup, honey, caramel, toffee, nuts, a touch of raspberries and aromas of alcohol. Malty, fruity, vinous taste with notes of syrup, dried fruit, caramel, citrus peel, toffee, raspberries and a finish with a balanced herbal bitterness and a warming alcohol glow. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Vinous and a bit boozy, but quite tasty. Quite nice.

750ml bottle shared at Rating Session 18.06.14. Thanks Rune! Dark reddish hazy body. Sweet scent of prune, plums, figs, dates, some barley and alcohol. The barley, the dark fruits and alcohol is mirrored in taste as well, some caramel and lingering taste of alcohol.

Holmen1 (3735) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2014
Fra flaske på Tap1 mai-14: en forsåvidt rund, ganske kompleks og velsmakende barleywine, men med en surhet som jeg finner litt ubehagelig og upassende til stilen.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2014
0.5l bottle #006210 shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a blurry deep amber red one, only a small islandy and sidesticking off-white top. A tad milder on the nose than I had hoped for, but it still smells quite nice. It has tones of both raisins and sweet caramel-butter. Clearly slightly oxidized. Some red berries with wet reeds, nuts and alcohol. Not bad at all. It’s just below average and small prickling on the carbonation while it has a oily light sticky feeling in the mouth. Lots of raisins and dried berries the taste. Yeasty nuts and sticky sweet caramel. It also contains a strong and powerful bitterness almost like it’s burning a bit on the tongue and it ends in a warming alco finish. Much tastier than I expected, and not bad at all. 19.02.2014
