lusikka (5324) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2011
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Rated @ 27.5.2011.
Pours a dark, hazy orange colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of sweet caramel and nuts. Flavour of floral hops, bready malts, caramel and toasted nuts. Medium bodied with a thick mouthfeel. English malts/hops are not my favourite.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Draft at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Pours a rosy coppe, well hazed, glowing brighr red with decent frothy offwhite head that laces well, dies to a film. Pretty but a dying head. Aromas are deadened, caramel and toffee pair with deadened floral hops, dry toffee and biscuits, a touch of spiciness. Fuller bodied beer with thicker sweet toffee, caramel, biscuits, a touch of vanilla. Sweeter malts with a light spicy pepper move into it. Soapy qualities, sweeter malts, decent floral and spicy hops with a touch of grass. Thicker bodied, sweet and silky with sweet malts, decent floral and lightly spiced hopping. A faint cocoa, caramel, toffee. Simple yet well balanced with decent hopping, sweet strong malts, sturdy body and balanced with a sweet slant, floral grassy hops. That slight touch of spice really wins me over

Thorpe429 (5006) - , Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Served in a tall goblet. Pours a ligh copper color with a half-finger of white head that faded and leaves a bit of spotty lacing as well as a thin collar. The nose is really quite plain wit just a bit of light malty sweetness.and some very faint tropical hops. The taste is a bit of a disappointment. There are some tropical hops and some lightly-sweet malt, though it is a bit medicinal and boozy toward the back. Finish is oddly alcoholic and has a bit of a medicinal component. Not my favorite brew from them, sad to say. Interesting, but not all that good in the end. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-23-2010

OleR (4597) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2011
Sampled from tap @Mikkeller. A near-clear dark amber beer, with a layer of beige bubbles on top. Initial aroma of alcohol-soaked dark fruits: Then a whiff of fruity/ light resinous hops, and grainy and caramelly malts. Full malty and very sweet. Caramel and fruit flavors with a sting of alcohol. Solid bitterness underneath. Quite sticky in the mouth. Alcohol heath and lingering bitterness in the finish.

drewbeerme (3869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2010
draft at brewery, pours hazy amber with white head. a very sweet candy sugar, cranberry and raisins with pinnapple in there too. flavors are candy sugar, booze soaked cherries, pinnapple, harsh piney and booze making it hard to swallow, syurpy body. i wouldn’t mind about 5oz of this during the winter months, perhaps this in a barrel or just aging it longer could be better too.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2011
On tap into a snifter at the brewpub...Pours a cleairsh light to medium brown, off white head with tons of lacing...A really light aroma, typical english style, tough to pull anything out, malt caramel with a touch of hops on the back. I want to like it, just nothing there...The taste is light but thankfully stronger the aroma. Toffee on the front which is sweet and nice but then almost totally dead in the middle lacking of flavor. The finish brings about some wood and hops, just pretty boring, tough to drink a lot of it. A pretty boring bw, nothing special here.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a slightly murky reddish tan with white head. Looks pretty English. Nose is doughy and lightly sweet. Strong malt notes and some English hops. It is starting to pick up some oxidation. Cardboard pokes through, as do some higher alcohols on taste. This would be interesting in a barrel, though preferably one that isn’t too wet. Not too bad.

pantanap (3340) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2010
Small taster pour at three floyds, munster... Pours a predominantly darker apple cider brown pour with a thin to medium sligtly off-white head... Mostly dark fruits and caramel malt in the nose, mostly sweet and and smewhat cloying... Flavors are mostly of the same. Sweet profile with dak fruits taking precedence followed up by some earthy hops. Medium bodied, not too full but the sweetness aspect is a tad too big.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a lightly hazed, orange-amber colored body with a thin, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a veil of lacing throughout. Aroma is sweet pines with a citrus blend, cherry fruit cocktail, and rich caramels. Definitely a distinct English hop spice to this. A touch of bread and florals too. Flavor is nice. Lots of fruity caramels with pineapple, oranges, and more cherry fruit cocktail. An even English hopping throughout with a nice earthy spice and pine thrown in too. Solid caramel backing with some bready toffees. A hint of sherry comes out in the finish as this dries with a medium bitterness and a light resin. Lots of lingering fruity caramels and English pines for a fairly lengthy duration. Medium-full, smooth body with a light, soft carbonation. Overall, a very easy drinking barleywine with no hint of alcohol. Fruity with a solid hop presence and sturdy malt backing. I liked this one a lot.
