Bottel.50cl. Old fruits, alkohol sweet, taste of sweet sweet, plume and no hop-bitterness to counteract it, talk about out of balance.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. From some SuperBrugsen. Pours a clear redish amber with a yellowish fizzy head that disappears. Aroma is heavy with lots of alcohol, caramel, bread, oranges and a slight metallic edge. Quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour is very sweet, quite clingy. Flavours begin with lots of caramel and a fruity edge. After swallowing, there is a serious warming viniousness. Perhaps too sweet and one-sided along with a probably too powerful dose of alcohol.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark red body.
Fizzy head thats mostly white but is little red, it is short lasting.
The body has a very beutiful color and a perfekt opacity.
Aroma is of apelsineshell and flowery hops. Small notes of cassis directly after a fast pour. Gets more alcoholic at the end.
Flavor is spicy, dried fruits.
Small notes of flowery hops, clovelike.
Very sweet and plumlike aftertaste, more than is usual in barley wines.
It is very hard to find any alcoholic tast in it.
Palate is thick and pretty harch.
This beer has a very nice balance betwen the plumlike sweetness and the hops, dont understand why it has got that low rating.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A deep red beer with a nice orangey head. The aroma is a bit on the light side, but what is there is sweet combined with notes of caramel, alcohol, dusty hops, peaches, and some over ripe fruits. The flavor is very sweet and quite powerful with strong notes of caramel and grapefruit, and medium notes of peaches, and alcohol, leading to a sweet bitter end with notes of alcohol and grapefruit lingering around.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Vintage early 2006, I enjoyed it June 2007. The color is warm amber and the head is nice and creamy. The aroma is fruity with notes of apple, raisin and candy sugar. The flavour is sweetish with notes of alcohol, fruit, apple, raisin, candy sugar and a citrussy bitterness. IMO it should have more body. 2314

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 2006. Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a big fizzy (noisy) light brown head that very fast becomes just bubbles. Aroma: woooooooooooo, that just bit me! Burned the few hairs I had in my nose. Alcohol big time, bit sour, sweet caramel, grass and raisins. The flavour: VERY sweet, too sweet....raisins, caramel, malt, more sweetness, alcohol, even more sweetness, fruity and malty and very siruppy sweet. The alcohol is noticeable but 12%...naaa get outta here..... well, this is a good nighty brew.
