Esperaba mucho más de esta Barley Wine. En apariencia y aroma cumplía el cometido. En sabor muy poco balanceada y astringente. Una decepción.

Bottle (thanks fonefan!). Amber/copper colour, not much head. Aroma is mild sour wood, sweet alcohol, fruits, wooden and fruity notes along with some raisins. Flavour is raisins, plum, sweet alcohol, a bit boozy along with some wooden and fruity notes. Balanced and somewhat balanced. Quite much vanilla in the finish.

Rune (14065) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013
From a test tube, many thanks to fonefan. Unclear, coal brown body, no head, no lacing. Sweet aroma of dried and ripe fruits. The taste profile is also sweet with prunes, plums and raisin. Sweet jam-like added by sherry-like alcohol. Full bodied. Nice in smaller amounts. (hotel room, Copenhagen, 24.05.2013)
