An amber beer with an orange head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of alcohol and caramel. The flavor is very dry with notes of alcohol and hops. Very hoppy for a Barley Wine, but a very nice beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2006 (Bottle 35,5 cl) Mahogany brown with a warm, reddish glow and a small, off-white head. The aroma alone is a bombardment of impressions: thick, rich aroma hoppiness and a very vinous touch. The body is strong and overly potent with typical notes of raisins and other dried fruits, plus overripe notes of plums etc. Quite hoppy finish from the 120 IBU. Thanks to Humleimporten for sharing this gem. 291205

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 21cl. It pours a clear, reddish dark amber body, completely flat and headless. Hops, alcohol, sugary notes, dried fruits and some pine cones in the aroma. The flavor is quite bitter, with raisins, sugary maltyness, some alcohol and green pine cones. Full-bodied and warming, finishing quite bitter. Certainly a nice one, but not a world class barley wine. 110930
