TheJestersBeer (2035) - SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2012
500ml bottle, as Vintage 2008. Pours a slightly cloudy, deep orange/amber, with a thin white head. Spicy, mature aromas, marzipan, leather, hazelnuts, dried apricots, caramel, fudge, butter, wood? Semi-sweet, full bodied, high bitterness, low CO2. The taste is likewise matured, lots of secondary flavours, marzipan, leather, tobacco, chocolate, walnuts, almonds. There is, however, also a slightly sour note, and the alcohol burns through rather intensely. The best offering I’ve had from this brewery, bot not quite top notch. (2012-02-29)

pekorte (6) - FINLAND - NOV 2, 2011 does not count
Vintage 2007, 25cl, bottle#: 21394 Dark amber colored, clear with minimal head. Caramel, lightly toasted malts, dark fruits and nutty aroma with a little alcohol. Taste is sweet, heavy, no bitterness, and I think got umami. Full bodied and thick and creamy on a palate. Very nice barley wine overall.
