Fra fat p CBC mai-13: barley wine er godterier for greie gutter, og denne er intet unntak. Brun ravfarge, klar og fin med beige skum. S kommer aromaen opp og jeg greier ikke vente lenger. Barley wine lagret p cognacfat, ah so smooth. I toppsjiktet denne kvelden.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2013
On tap at anchorage brewing. Whats this monster beer doing on tap at the end of the aisle of barrels?!... Pours a deep mahogany, mostly opaque, must dark brown hue... Rich toffee and caramel nose, dark fruits, raisins, molasses and a clear and present cognac barrel presence. Full and sweet, dessert-like and delectable... Flavors encompass a deep rooted toffee and caramel nougat focus that pair immediately with boozy fruit cake, dark fruit and the ilk. Barrel is smooth and cognac adds a mild sweet spirit aspect that meshes quite nicely. Full bodied, touch sticky with a lighter level of carbonation that matches naturally with the aformentioned... Really incredible all around. Excellent sipper to be enjoyed in small amounts.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 Bottle sample at Belmont. I got a 5 ounce or so glass. Very expensive, but a cool way to share. Pours a dark mahogany color, small ring of a white head. The aroma is big sweet malts, raisins, almost a plum pudding element, heat. The flavor is actually not very hot, sure its crazy sweet and big, but not hot. Loads of raisins, vinous cognac but not a ton of barrel, super sweet malts, brown sugar. The flavor works well for what it is. Hell of a beast. Reminds me of some of the bigger Avery beers. Could use fifty years or so. Had it again thanks to Jeff. Just awesome. Super smooth, huge. Bumped up from 4.0 to 4.1.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2015 Batch 1 bottle @ What the Funk Denver 2014. Pours an orangish brown appearance with light lasting head. Aroma is full of dark grapes, caramel, toffee, and some nice tannic notes. Theres some oxidation notes in the nose and flavor but they seem to complete the alcohol in a good way. Raisin, plum, dark grape, caramel flavor. Some heat on the back end but not that bad. By far, my favorite of the festival and a real treat. Only wish I would have had a chance to get another pour. (4.5)

Batch 2 bottle @ home. Cloying, low carbonation, gooey. High boost. Kind of fun but not as good as I remembered batch 1 being. (4.0)
