4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ my tasting in Vejle.
Pours clear amber. Small, creamy, white head. The appearance is generally very impressive for a beer containg this much oat. Aroma has oats, caramel, light viniousness, some strawberries. Great creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Sweetish flavour, softly vinious, port, strawberries, grainy and biscuity. Great dry and hoppy finish. Very nice!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber with a small white head. Juicy peach aroma with tangerine and pine. I have just brewed an oat porter myself, and there is definitely some of that: graham cracker, grain and bread. And a bit of alcohol.
Flavour is intense hops, oat and alcohol. Juicy American hops, and lots of oat character. Unlike the hvedegoop, this has its own character making it more than a barleywine.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Archer Liquor. Pours copper with a smallish white head. I’m getting substantial citrus and floral for aroma. Medium plus body with soft carbonation. Flavor is lots of floral and citrus hop over barely detectable caramel. Except that the hop departs and sweetness appears. That’s the cycle for each sip. This is not for quaffing. Finish is really hoppy, and the floral reduces the harshness of the bitter, but it’st really hoppy. Oat wine? Maybe that’s why the sweetness is less than expected. Really hoppy for a barley wine. If the hop is resin, the floral must be messin’ with my taster. Really like it. With time I can almost believe resin. Not quite though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Keg Liquor.
Poured clear copper color with an average creamy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy rye, hop and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a thick smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate complex bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet and alcohol burn finish that was moderate to long lasting.
This is a good complex beer.
