Not sure I would recommend this for people looking for a barleywine. That is what it is described as, but it pours, tastes and smells more like an old ale. Hardly any hops at all, but very malty from beginnign to end. Pours a reddish amber with a thin, white head. Some elather and clove with raisin and vanilla. Complex combination of malts that simply works from beginning to end.

Red-brown color with solid thick foam head (and some particles). Shy sweet and light alcoholic nose. The taste is creamy thick with a raisin sweetness with some decent licorice and an alcoholic touch. Pleasant sweet finish with a fruity (dates) sweet and sticky aftertaste.

33cl bottle. Pours red Brown without much head. Sweet beer without any bitternes but a lot of taste. Malty taste and aroma.

En meget sød øl, der smager af noget karamelt. Næsten ingen humle, og man har næsten en hel fedtet smag i munden efter et par slurke.

Really good: dried fruits, plums full of aroma and caramelized nuts. Alcohol taste is lovely masked and this makes it a must try beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Pours reddish in color with particles in suspension. Aroma is sweet and as good as you’ll find. Dried fruit, cherry cough sweets, brown sugar. Reminds me of Paulaner Salvatore in flavour and that’s no had thing. Quality.

Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention - 2016 edition. Cheers! Pours clear gold with a creamy topping. Sugary and bready, with notes of soft caramel and ripening fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, with more toasty and bready malts, caramel and toffee. Good stuff.

Pours a rich dark copper from a bottle, lots of lacing. Slightly spicy, rich jammy nose, but rather thin and not overpowering flavor. Very good beer.

Tasted this from the bottle. Not really scary as the name implies. Yes, 8.5% alcohol but smooth and easy to drink. All enjoyed this, even the non-beer-drinkers in the group.
