Botella de 33 cl... Gran cortesía de Cimmeria. 07-04-2013. Muy buena barley wine de color marrón turbio, con poca espuma poco persistente y sabores y aromas bastante maltosos, dulces y con toques de maderas empapadas en licor de bourbon. Sabores bastante intensos y un cuerpo fuerte de 10.5 vol que la hacen muy muy interesante. Para repetir, muy buena. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. Pours an orange brown with an off-white head. The aroma has some harsh hop notes as well as some toffee. The flavor is different than the aroma. I get a lot of cherries and other dark fruit, as well as some toffee and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. andrepintado (3659) - Porto, PORTUGAL - MAY 25, 2013
25cl bottle thanks to Papsoe. (bb2010) Dark brown color with thin head. Taste is medium bitter, sweet and light sour. Carbonation is soft. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, alcohol, mushrooms, dried fruits, light vinegar... maybe too old? I prefered the Kølle...

Bottle bbd September 2010. Clear brown pour, small tanned head. Aroma is of leather, tobacco and light bourbon notes. Flavor is very sweet, malty and there is definitely some oak in there. Quite nice, but I guess this is too old. jmgreenuk (9964) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle at the May De Molen monthly tasting. Poured a murky dark brown with a very thin off white head. The aroma is rich fruity resinous and alcoholic. The flavour is strong liquorice bitter, some sweetness, a little coffee and some dry sawdust in the palate. Rather nice to taste, but I’m not sure I’d buy a bottle. vto (11) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle @ De Molen. Smells caramel, tastes banana, caramel, bourbon all together. Soft aftertaste, remarkably light given its alcoholic graduation. deanso (10101) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - MAY 14, 2013
Sample at the molen monthly tasting.
Very thin head. Slightly hazy amber pour. A bit oxidised. nice brew
