2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank with Rik 23-4-2015. Did not like it very much. It does not have that Barley Wine sweetness. The beer is unpleasantly bitter. The taste is one dimensional and does not really develop.

Bottle 33cl. Red/amber with a small off white head. Subtle aroma of dried fruit. Very nice flavour. Rich and not a typical barley wine. Mainly du to the rich hopping. Very nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Een helder, robijnrood bier met een stevige lichtbruine schuimkraag. Een zoetig, caramelachtig aroma. De smaak is stroperig zoet, maar op de achterzijde van de tong toch vrij bitter. Een lekkere bittere nasmaak blijft lekker even hangen.
A nice, ruby-red beer with a firm, slightly brown layer of foam. A sweet, caramel-like aroma. It tastes sweet like syrup, but is also quite bitter on the back of the tongue. A nice bitter aftertaste hangs around for a while.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark Amber with nice thick off white head and some big bubbles. Lots of aromatic hops, with pine, glue, marmalade, some grapefruit. Quite bitter with some thick syrupy sweetness underneath. Brown bread, toffee, wet cardboard. Finish is a strong bitter with a very weird touch that's hard to describe, but it's almost like unripe eggplant. Full bodied with full carbonation. Interesting stuff.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Biernavigatie.nl.
Dark copper with an off-white head. caramel aroma with some floral hops.
Taste is sweet and hoppy with a long bitter finish. Well concealed alcohol, making this one tasty but dangerous beer.
