3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled on 6/1/2012. My first thought was this is very reminiscent of Unita's Duhbe, with simply more malt concentration and less bitter hops. Don't get me wrong, I love Duhbe.. Just being making an association... I'm guessing a similar malt/hop bill, with simply a different proportion and similar yeast. I may be wrong, as I'm not a brewer, though I can't deny what I taste. Rich, honeyed malted and light caramel, with mildly roasted malt, wheat bread and caramelized stonefruit. Think honeyed, caramalized, dried apricots, on wheat.. with a slightly bitter tinge.. Good.. Though I prefer the additional bitter hops of Duhbe, if i'm paying for the malt/hop bill.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska från SB. Söt, fruktig doft med mango, grape, citruszest, tall, ananas, honung, karamell och alkoholvärme. Stor söt men framförallt besk smak. En stor BW med allt vad det innebär men en riktigt elak beska med maskros och grapevitebeska som gör att man sippar i små doser. Rejäl maltsötma, karamell, smörkakor, frukt men i slutänden mest besk. Lite för så i min bok.

Bottle at a barley wine tasting. Pours a reddish amber color. Nose has some slight caramel and booziness to it. Taste is slightly sweet, and ends up being a remarkably easy drink. OK.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle). Lovely fresh scent of hops with aromas of sweet tropical fruits. Sweet taste of malt, slightly over-ripe tropical fruit, sweet caramel malt, raisins and alcohol. Much sweet sticky alcohol in the aftertaste. Well? Impressive beer, but how palatable is it really? In my mouth a little too much flavor of sweet toffee. But okay, 10,4 % ABV is not noticeable too much in the taste, and that it is impressive!

Poured into a wine glass. Fruity and toffee aroma. Taste of bread, caramel, herbs and alcohol. Maybe a little bit thin for the style and not big enough.
