COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Weyerbacher, we prefer to brew things true to European style guidelines, so our barley wine is definitely on the malty side, without being overly sweet. Notes of date or perhaps fig on the palate follow a pleasurably malty aroma to your taste buds. The finish is warm and fruity, and begs for the next sip.

Pours with a small head and little carbonation. Very little nose of burnt berries, alcohol and leather. Sticky sweet, burnt black cherry, nice malt backbone, full bodied with a long finish with just a hint of the alcohol.

MPA (845) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle. Bought at De Molen in 2011, rated 28th of november 2014. Mørkt brown with beige head. Some sediment. Aroma of figs, dates, prunes and alcohol. Sweet flavour of dark fruit along with burned caramel and a very decent bitterness. Alcohol dads warmth and it stays on the tongue and in the throat for a long time. Powerful in flavour without going over the top. Still something seems a bit off.

20/X/14 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle from Bierkompass (webshop, DE) @ home - BB: n/a (2014-1238)

Clear amber to red beer, small aery off-white irregular head, unstable, non adhesive, dissipates immediately. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sourish, lots of bubble gum, sugary touch, cherries, cherry ice cream, some caramel. Aftertaste: alcohol, bitter hops, sugary, some strawberry jam, boozy, sticky. Not bad, but I expected much more of this...
