Odense drinking Belgian Beer in February. Copper with a small, but lasting off-white head. Malty aroma with citrus and pine hops and a little dried fruit. Sweet malty flavour with quite a bit of almost sugary malt sweetness. Citrus hops and a quite bitter finish

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Bottles & Cans; batch #221/222/223, so early October batch date. Picked up quite fresh, and cellared 3 months - served at cellar temperature. Pours an orangey brown with an orange head leaving some nice stripes of lace on the glass. Aroma is holy hops! Lovely fruits, heavy citrus, sweet pine, and grass. Taste is sweet fruits, caramel, citrus, pine and heavy resin. Very sweet, between the fruitiness and the malts, and super hoppy. Medium bodied and very sticky. Finishes super sweet and somewhat alcoholly. Not sure what a great barleywine "should" be, but a brew that tastes like a very good - if sweet and fruity - DIPA would be a very good beer in my book. Very enjoyable ... if sweet.
