Holmen1 (3037) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2014
Fra flaske p Mandag i annen, Cardinal okt-14: kveldens siste, og en solid avslutning. Humlen som er brukt skal visstnok hete X-431. (?) Mrk gylden med storboblet kortvarig skum. Appelsin, rosin, alkohol og litt humle gjr (sammen med en lett syrlighet) Old Embalmer til en lett konsumerbar barley wine. Good beer in good company.

slowrunner77 (6288) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"Pretty by the book american style barleywine. aggressive on the hops and the alcohol while still managing to showcase the malty backbone of caramel, toast, and slight fruitiness. Its a nice BW, but at a price point significantly higher than old stock, old foghorn, or old guardian, its going to be a on timer."
