JorgeLee (1736) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2016
Bottle, Beers of Europe. Deep clear reddish brown colour, thick white foam. Quite sweet malts, caramel, Biscoff, then lots of sticky resiny fruity hops. Bitter finish, cuts through the sweetness. In the hop profile and bitterness it is definitely better described as an Imperial Red than a barley wine. It is a bit boozy but with that citric bitterness I didn’t find it cloying; not really one to smash anyway.

Camons (10099) - Hasselager, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2015
Draught @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours amber with a small offwhite head. Aroma of malt, yeast, caramel, sweet fruit, wood, berries. Flavor is rather sweet, malty, caramel, wood, fruit, berries, alcohol. Medium body, lively carbonation that dont fit with the beer that well, sweet finish with quite some alcohol. Not that balanced. 110915

Bottle, 2012 vintage from wicked wine privatimport "vintagelåda 1". Sweet caramel and hoppy aroma.alcohol. Bitter, yet fresh taste. Long sweet finish. Expecting more complexity from the ABV, but still a nice straight forward BW.

Kaisin sobraga saunas, ei olnud hea valik parast kuuma leili. Värv, lohn okei, maitses nagu k*si
