stefannilssons (1319) - SWEDEN - APR 23, 2014
Det här var fint och välbalanserat men dessvärre så skiner alkoholen igenom och påverkar upplevelsen negativt. Smaken var söt och funkig med inslag av torkade plommon.

DocJitsu (721) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2014
Pours a clear copper-golden with a creamy, beige head. Faint aroma of light toffee with the nasal sensation of sniffing a sliced orange. Smooth, with average thickness for the style with a little bit of burn in the rear of the palate. Some toasted, sweet malt becomes overwhelmed with orange citrus flavor and lemon zest bitterness. A bit out of balance and too hop heavy for the style.

brnandersen (1672) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 12, 2014
Sample from 65 cl. bottle. Slightly hazy amber-golden colour with an off-white head. Sweet aroma with vanilla, fruits, spices, alcohol, oranges and chocolate. Taste is sweet. Full body with a smooth, soft texture. Long lasting finish with fruits, vanilla, chocolate and oranges. Very good.

Chuckaduck (610) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - APR 11, 2014
2013 Bottle. Poured 4/11/14. Pours a deep translucent amber with a thin but fluffy white head. Aroma is dark fruit, wood, earth, honey, some grass and a touch of citrus hops. Taste is surprisingly bright and elevated; citrus hops, wood, caramel,, dark fruit, burnt sugar; finish is bittersweet fruit peel. Nice lacing. Full bodied. Medium-low carbonation. A really nice barley wine from a great brewery.

Franzen (187) - SWEDEN - APR 4, 2014
Dark syrup and butterscotch in the aroma with some notes of cream. Unfortunately some cat sand can be found as well in the aroma
Nice clear amber colour withe light yellow head
Lots of toffee and butterscotch in the taste nicely rounded of with the bitterness
Medium to full body, average carbonation dry texture
Aroma could have more but taste and finish is nice

VictorStr (996) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2014
Inte jätte övertygad. Lite svag aroma, sötma. Smaken var inte heller så bra. Lite tunn i kroppen för 10%, låg kolsyra.

beer_est_deus (512) - örebro, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2014
Bärnstens färgad med ett tjockt, krämigt, orange skum. Doft: Dadlar, fikon, humle, malt söttma, kanderat socker. Smak: Malt, trä, dadlar, humle, grape, cola koncentrat, mandarin, honungsmelon, lätt lätt rostat. Trevlig bekantskap utan att vara extrem.
