COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Luxuriously rich in character, this warming winter ale delivers over 10% alcohol in an oh-so-seductive manner. Deliciously fruity flavors lie under a bracing hop nose.

Taken me awhile to find this one, bomber into snifter glass. Orangy-amber color with light tan head. Aroma of citrus/piney hops, big caramel malt and some fresh fruitiness. Taste makes a much larger appearance with some hop bitterness, toffee, sugar, berries, light cocoa and booze. Heavy body, moderate carbonation, slick, soft, oily with slight bitter finish. Very fruity, soft barleywine. Enjoyed!

Served at 57deg from wine cellar. Pours a rich Amber and head dissipates quickly. Citrus and caramel with long finish. Malty sweetness taste and nose but not cloying. I really like this. 22oz bomber. Will buy more and drink over 3-4 years.

Rot box special, vintage 2014. Pours a murky Amber with a tan head. Bottle from shelf aroma, toffee, sticky butterscotch. Hops are pretty much gone. Some cardboard, sweet. Thick and sticky. High boost. Chugged the 650ml in under a minute. Ok.

Vestergaard (1577) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 14, 2016
Bottle thanks to Bursprak! Pours a hazy, reddish amber with a medium sized, long lasting, off white head. Aroma has intense hops and sweet malts, that together gives an intense berry-fruity sweetness, intense malty, spicy, piny hops, some caramel. Taste is sweet, toasty, malty, pretty fruity, and finishes off with a big, but balanced bitterness. Average carbonation, full body without being sticky. Nice and balanced for the style!
