profumo accattivante e ma senza esagerazioni o estremi morbida in bocca con una piacevole persistenza di amaro che aiuta a non far risaltare la componente alcolica

12-APR-2013, tap @Mikkeller & Friends, with Marianne.
Unclear amber with tan head.
Candy sugar, bread, dried fruit, hops. Taste the same. Even better and longer than the aroma.
Full body and soft carbonation. Fantastic barley wine. Marianne drinks half of my glass:)

maybe i was influenced by this beer’s name, but the label in the store looked like it didn’t have a space: to øl = toøl ~ tool

Pours a raw sienna color with a touch of bottom rising bubbles that creates an eggshell skin then eases out to the edge. Aromas are sweet toffee maltiness with bright hoppy citrus and grass. Wow.. om the palate this beer is complex and drinkable. Rich caramel and toffee flavors are balanced out by a big bitter hop presence that cleans up the finish and brings out some nice piney earthy qualities on the backend.

Aroma of sugars, pine hops and good floral. Pours red and good laces. Taste has a great pine hop with herbal tea. Very flavorful. I love it.
