The ’Belgian strong ale’ in this series of sin-themed Amager beers, bought at De Caigny in Essen. Medium thick, moussy, pale greyish beige head consisting of minute and densely packed bubbles, slowly breaking but otherwise well retaining; very dark but translucent purplish burgundy colour with dead yeast and protein dots here and there. Indeed a quite ’luscious’ aroma of candied cherries, caramel, marmelade, strong damp earth and even fairly strong FFF (freshly fermented farmland - not all too pleasant actually), pear syrup, tea, white pepper, butter melting on hot pancakes, candied fig, rum-soaked raisins, ripe blue plum, fermenting tree leaves, brown sugar, honey, soap, cloves, dusty cocoa powder. Very sweet onset, residual brown sugar, (restrained) banana ester as well as impressions of fig, raisin and medlar, balanced by a basic, soft sourishness underneath but nevertheless sticking to the teeth a bit; carbonation is on the soft side. Smooth, slick but ’fat’ mouthfeel, fruity esters, candi sugar sweetness and mild phenolic notes on top of a thick layer of caramelly and honeyish malt sweetness which gains a lightly bittering toasted note in the end; soapy wheat is noticeable too. Primarily malt and, very much so, brown sugar sweet finish with retronasal fruitiness but also a late, earthy and floral hop bitterness and, unsurprisingly, a glow of chest-warming, liqueurish alcohol flirting with astringency (and slightly ’palpable’ on the tongue’s surface at an earlier stage as well). I am not sure if quadrupel, because that is very clearly what this is, would be the beer style most associated with lust and eroticism - being Belgian, I tend to associate it more with quite the opposite in the form of monks and monasteries - but regardless of that, this is indeed a very lush, big, rich and ’baroque’ kind of beer fit for the style. Too bad for the manure-like quality in the aroma, too overly sweet to my personal taste and the alcohol could have been a bit more subtle, but otherwise certainly enjoyable.

The aroma is dried fruits, caramel, sugar, butter and a bit metallic. The color is dark brown. The taste is full of sugar, caramel, dried fruits and butter. The finish is long and sweet. Not that impressing. Foffern (1927) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2016
Bottle at home. Two year old. Pours a slightly hazy deep reddish brown colour with a khaki head. Aroma of dried fruit, black currants, wild berries, heather, oak, fudge, bread, spices, chocolate truffles and some smoke. The flavour is more sweet and malty with syrup, cake, nuts, fudge, leather, creme brulee, oak and some alcohol. Has a soft and silky mouth feel, full-bodied and light bitterness. A very rich ale. Has a very complex aroma and a bit too sweet taste. Nice ale but I need to pair it with something to balance out the sweetness. spoonakos (52) - - MAY 21, 2016

Flaska från Barley Wine, Köpenhamn. Tack Kim, för köpet! Får ej säljas i Sverige pga etikett. Mörk, mahognyfärgad med lite röda toner. Beiget fingerhögt skum. Rejält med torkad frukt, sötma från russin, fikon, torkade plommon. Stor kropp, rejält med sötma. Förutom torkad frukt även muscovadosocker, mörk brödsirap, choklad, kola. Något framväxande beska i slutet som tonar ner sötman en aning, men fortfarande dekadent dominerad av rejäl sötma. Oförskämd lusta på flaska!
