0.5 l bottle. Hazy amber color with small creamy head. Sweet, perfumed, candyish and raisiny aroma. Sweet, vinous, toffeish, raisiny, fruity and toasty flavor with notes of red wine, lots of warming alcohol and some hops in the background. Very thick and chewy mouthfeel. Good dessert beer.

KimJohansen (10396) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2008
Hazy amber with medium off white head. Sweet aroma with caramel and alcohol notes. Very sweet flavor with notes of caramel, hops, fruits and alcohol. To boozy and a bit unbalanced.

Skinnyviking (7936) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle. High fluffy but lasting off-white head leaving nice curtains. Hazy orange thick looking body. Powerful barley malt aroma and notes of alcohol. Flavor dominated by barley malt but it has fruity flavors as well. Alcohol is tastable but well hidden by the hops bitterness. Low carbonation and a long bitter sweet aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2011 Bottle. Pours a hazy, orange body with a beige head. Heavy malty aroma with beef-stock and sweetness, as well as fruity hops. Sweet and fruity flavor too, with a beef-stocky, long malty finish. Full body. Can’t really decide if it’s lovely or just nice, I guess it’s just nice, but that ain’t bad either. Rating: 7-4-7-4-14-3.6. 071228

Bottle, as Vintage Beer 2008. A clear-looking dark amber beer with a minimal head. Quite oily pour. Sugary, malty and slightly meaty nose where there’s also room for a touch of licorice, some hops and a gose of caramel. Warming on the palate, rounded and full-bodied. Sufficient carbonation. The flavor has mostly caramel maltyness and fruityness, hints of licorice and dried fruits. Lasting and warming finish. A nice barley wine, without being world class in any way. 110716
