"It turned out to be a case of mistaken identity, of course - wrong place at the wrong time...but Claus was soon back on the street with the polite apologies of the authorities - no questions asked. All’s well that ends well, surely, but still, the reporters wanted to know...it takes its toll, doesnt’t it? "Indeed" sighed Claus, "my elf is going crazy, and I fear I shall soon go crazy as well" And with that he hoisted a great flagon of his favorite barleywine-style ale, silently contemplating the future and straining to remember why he got into this particular line of work in the first place. Peter Scholey, Brewer.

En varm alkoholrig barleywine. En sød meget maltet øl, der mangler lidt finish.

MrHangover (2664) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber pour, no head. Aroma is horrible, rotten vegetables and died yeast. Roadkill aroma, so is the flavor. Really bad this is.

fantti (722) - FINLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin kauniin kuparinruskeana ja kirkkaana, sormen paksuisella ja hyvää pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Hajussa on pääosissa makeaa siirappimaista ja karamellista maltaisuutta, alla on selvästi vähemmän pihkaa ja tuoretta ruohoa sekä vielä vähemmän tuoretta sitrusmaisuutta että tummempaakin hedelmää. Maku on hyvin pihkainen ja siirappisen makea. Karheaa puumaisuutta, sitrusta ja sitrushedelmän kuorta löytyy myös. Suutuntuma on melko humaloitu, mutta runko pitää sen ikään kuin piilossa ja humala työntyy tasaisesti suuhun. Runko on melko täyteläinen ja yllättävän kuiva. Pieni yllätys, kun odotin todella makeaa elämystä, mutta runko ja humalointi tuntuu olevan todella hyvin tasapainossa. Ei nyt tyylin kärkipäätä, mutta laadukkaasti tehty "ohraviini".

Hermod (3418) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2013
33cl bottle from Alko. Poured clear amber, thin white head. Malt, sugar, booze, caramel. Quite boozy taste with malt, sweetness, mild toffee notes. Long warming, boozy finish.

Tide (1834) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle from Alko. Amber color, white head. Bittersweet taste with citrus, hops, caramel, toffee, resin, spices and a bit of cooked vegetable aroma. Bittersweet finish with citrus, caramel and toffee. Decent barley wine, although a bit too sweet for my taste.

jmgreenuk (4807) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle at Dean’s Pale Lager tasting, Den Haag. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is rich medicinal and a little resin. Not good. The flavour is medium bitter sweet with a sweet malty palate. Something went wrong when they brewed this!

Bottle shared thanks to Denk. Pours clear golden with a small of white head. Aroma of malt and caramel, but not in a good way. Flavour is heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Bad.
