3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, almost opaque brown with a fairly small head. Aroma very sweet, raisins, dark fruit, caramel, bubblegum. Taste...well... burnt raisins come to mind. And bunt sugar. Very sweet, but with a burnt note that is neither roasty nor toasty. As a barley wine it’s not bad, I guess, but it is an example of why mid-range crystal malts should be used sparingly.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2015 Aroma has dark fruits, plums, spices and chocolate. Flavor has malted caramel, chocolate and complex dark sugars... Almost an umami-like flavor as well! Finish is nicely balanced. Delicious beer!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsdalen. Veldig mørk brun. Uklar. Middels høyt farget skum som daler sakte. Etterlater seg tett lacing. God søt maltaroma. Oljeaktig munnfølelse. Smaken litt karamell med antydning til lakris. Bra øl - men ikke min stil.

Draft. Dark brown with an off white head. Very earthy with some toffee and spices. Could maybe use a touch more sweetness to balance but solid.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml swing-top bottle with a long neck from Vinmonopolet Langnes. Cloudy dark brown coloured body. Rocky fawn-coloured head reduced to a remaining filmy layer. Spotty lacing. Mid-sweet dark malty nose, hints of earth and bread. Roasted malty flavours joined by leaves, toffee, and dried fruits added by dark spices. Warming malt-fruity sweetness to the ending. Fine bodied. Nice. A little too sweet though (Friday eve at home in Tromsø, 27.03.2015).

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thank potjebier! Deep brown pour with bubbles slowly rising through the viscous liquid to form a thin very creamy off white head. Aroma is intensely matly, rich barley sugar notes, very malty, light toast, definitely some english barleywine notes in here, toffee, caramel. Taste is sweet, lightly boozy. Palate is med-heavy bodied, good carb. Nice.
