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.

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

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - FEB 18, 2008
Hazy amber look with a decent white head. Aroma is pretty light for a barly, mainly grain and sweet caramel, but also a good amount of alchohol. Flavor is powerfull alchoholic with sweet malts used to cover it up, grainy and alchoholic finish.

500 ml bottle. Almost clear, dark golden body with a rather small off-white head. Aroma is heavy, sweet malt and alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt, syrup, sugar and alcohol. To sweet and too much alcohol.

Christian (12623) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2008
Muddy light copper beer with a big and firm tan head leaving some lace. Heavy malty aroma with a green apple note. Sweet and malty flavour covered by a very dominating alcohol. Way too sweet, way to alcoholic.

TheDog (586) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2008 Bottle 25 cl. Hazy orange colour with a thin off white head. Spicy and sweet aroma and taste of sweet roasted malts, brown sugar and honey. It´s allmost vinous and very rich of taste. A bit too sweet for me but I like the way they´ve hidden the 12% alcohol. Nice prize: dkr. 12,- in Fakta so overall impression must be 12 :-)
