3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Et ubestemmelig øl. Veldig mildt på smak. Nesten som det smaker mel. Likevell et godt øl som bør prøves.

Draft at the Pig. Tulip. Sweet aroma of fruit and nectars. Taste of malts, alcohol and sweet fruit. I found the aftertaste rather tart and biting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured on draft. Pours a darker brown with a beige ring of foam around the edge of the glass. Aroma is grainy, boozy, and malty. Taste is hefty malt and alcohol. Maybe with a year or two of age, this might get a little more pleasant, but as it stands, this beer really doesn’t do much for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet smell, oily mouth feel. Not a whole lot of carbonation, as to be expected. Somewhere between an IPA and a brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle pours a clear reddish brown with medium off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of toffee, bread, butterscoth, and vanilla, with oak and some dark fruits also present. Taste is quite sweet, with a boozy but slightly drier finish. Body is medium to full with only slight carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky/oily. This is a very decent oak-aged barleywine, and very good for the price, but not one of the great ones
