laakus (116) - Nossebro, - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle, best before 19/10/2018. Pours amber reddish, light brown foam. Nose is sweet malty, some toffee or nutty like tones and some hoppy aromas pushing through. Taste is sweet dried fruits like plums, some hints of toffee, not much bitterness and a very well hidden alcohol. After a while the hoppiness can be felt. Nice complexity! A great winter sipper this one!

NordicV (1992) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad mot orange öl med ett gulvitt skum. Doft av malt, karamell, citrus och torkad frukt. Detsamma återkommer i smaken. Lätt förnimmelse av alkoholen.

NosirIwont (2394) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2016
Bottle. 11.0%. Best before 20.07.18. Pours a deep, dark amber/brown, with a light tan head. Great lacing. Sweetish dark fruit aroma; raisins, plums. Malt in the background. Flavour is sweet with dark fruit; plums, and a spicy hint; somewhat cardamom-y, without actually being cardamom. Alcohol overtone. Finish is fruity bordering grainy, slightly tart and with a mild alcohol burn. Soft palate. Overall okay, but feels a bit unbalanced, also cloying in the long run. 24.10.16.

Bottle. Beown clear. Heavy malts, almost toffee, some herbs, pine, pine residue on nose. Full bodied, smooth, good bitters, almond cake, thick malty flavour. Clean, nice american barley wine. Good yeast esters, pine hops. Intensive, long.
