Mediocre English barley wine but still hit the spot on a cold night. Thin corona, golden body. Strong aroma of bitter oranges, plus butter and bread. Flavour dominated by Cointreau and alcohol. Minimal hop presence - almost verging on malt liquor territory here. Sweet and boozy. Guilty pleasure for mine - I like it more than the overall package probably warrants. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars.)

Flaske 330 fra Systembolaget Luleå - Storheden. Drukket i Skibotn 5 Aug 15. Mørk honningfarget. Nesten ikke skum. Forsiktig sherryaroma. Smaken lett honning. Litt tørr etter hvert. Skuffende,

jesperhammer (3686) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2015
18-OCT-2015, bottle @home, from Systembolaget Emporia. Clear golden with lasting white head. Aroma is mainly bitter hops and then some sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt, light raisin, candy. Very sweet, quite some pilsner-bitterness. Full’ish body. A touch of diacetyl? This is wrong. Not how a Barley Wine is supposed to be.

Flaska från SB. Degig doft med antydan av mandel, typ björnklister. I smaken börjar det likna en brittisk barley wine. Fänkål, dadlar och sultanrussin, med en antydan av anis. Kraftigt spritig.

Samuel214 (122) - SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2015
Flaska från SB. Ljus och klar bärnstensfärgad, knappt något skum alls. Första lukten är den av pilsner och ljus lager. I övrigt dominerar sötma från torkad frukt, brödsirap och en aning tuggummi/godis. Smaken är också främst av pilsner/ljus lager, om med en större sötma kombinerat med alkoholtoner. Trist nog en ganska tunn kropp och smaken kunde gärna ta lite mer plats, särskilt med tanke på alkoholhalten. Lite blaskig och kolsyran kunde gärna tagit lite mindre plats. Etiketten beskriver den som en kombination mellan barley wine och russian stout och att vintonerna är tydliga. Far from it. "Complex stuff and a long, long way from mainstream beer". Mnja...

Turtles (934) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear copper / dark golden, big white head. rich lacing. Mild aroma of biscuits and grass, nothing exciting. Oily mouthfeel, low carbonated. The taste is simple, butterscotch from malt and grassy hops, no depth in taste just sweet and sticky.

Sweet caramel aroma and taste! Quite bitter finish. 10% that hides very well. Tasty and recommended!
