Bottle at 1st CBC Sunday Tasting. Pours glowing amber with a medium, off-white head. Bit of candy and bread in the nose, some toffee and caramel, that kind of thing. Medium to big sweet flavor, nice toast, lots of toffee, subtle ripe fruits provide mild tang, some cake. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warm finish, caramel, sweet bread, toasted sugars. Excellent.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Reddish amber with a misty surface and a tan ring around the glass.
Aroma: fruitier and sweeter that Hvedegoop, vanilla, toffee, berries.
Taste: vanilla, custard, toffee, oatmeal cookies, no apparent alcohol.
Full-bodied and quite still.
This was really nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Gothenburg Beer Festival 2011. September 2, 2011
Pours hazy orange with a creamy white foam. Caramel and oat is dominating the aroma, some light hoppy exotic fruit beneath it. The mouthfeel is a bit coarse to me, the texture is a bit grainy with a lot of sweetness. Oatmeal is very present throughout the taste with smaller notes of caramel and toffee. An interesting brew even though sweet barley wines like this doesn’t really appeal to me.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pineapple, lots of oats, dried fruits, figs, caramel. Nice hops that balance the big sweetness and makes this one of the smoothest beers I’ve ever had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a slightly hazy bright orangey color ale with a nice off-white foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with different cereal notes (probably oat) then what I was expecting. Taste is dominated by loads of sweet caramelized notes offset by some cereal. Body is above average with good carbonation. Interesting though I am not sure I need to drink oat wine on a regular basis.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2011 Pours dark amber with big creamy white head. Aroma is rich caramel with earthy, citrus hops. Taste is a delicious blend of earthy hop resin and rich caramel with a semi-sweet finish. The mouthfeel of this beer is amazing! I had it when it was originally released and loved it....it might be better now.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This was one of the first beers in my adventures into beer tasting and still one of the best. Orange colour, medium head, had lots of flavour, finished off a little bitter. Huge beer!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
660 ml bottle.
Pours adark copper colour with a small but thick head which leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of bitter hops, oatmeal, caramel and alcohol. Flavour of bitter hops, caramel malts, grass and sweet fruits. Extremely smooth but thin mouthfeel with a long, warming, mild bitter finish. This has aged too much as the hops are diminished, but it only makes this more wine-like.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
660 ml bottle. From Copenhagen, Denmark.
Hazy amber colour with small off-white head.
Strong malt, dark bitter hops, dark fruits and pungent bitterness in heavy aroma. Caramel, pungent hoppy bitterness, some alcohol (not disruptive) and dark fruits in flavour. Big one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle, during the Goop vertical. Clear amber/orange with a small off white head. Aroma of bread dough, caramel, pine and some alcohol. Flavor is maltly and fairly sweet with a medium hop bitterness and a light alcohol heat. Medium to full body with average carbonation and a slick, oily mouth feel. First ever Oat wine and I’ve got to say I’m not the biggest fan, not horrible just doesn’t really do it for me. Glad I got to try it though, thanks to EithCubes for the bottle.
