Chelmsford Winter Fest. Clear and very dark brown beer. No head but has nice moderate carbonation. Quite a sharp orange cherry fruitiness on top of mild dark malt. Nicely joined up, decent, tasty and a bit of a palate cleanser.

Bottle at Papsø tasting. It pours a light brown colour with a off white head. Aroma is light roasted and honey. Flavour is similar with notes of cereals as well. Rather thin mouthful.

Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of tdtm82. Pours a clear and warm reddish with a tiny beige head. Lots of dark dried fruits in the nose with a little phenols. Medium body, again dark fruits, low carbonation, lots of phenols. Hardly any bitterness. Hardly a Barley Wine. 180311

Fin (10820) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2010
Cask, gravity at Merton Winter Beer Festival 05-01-10 Pours conker brown with a light beige head. Touch of tangy fruit on the nose, like sour sharp summmer berries. This is also quite tangy in the mouth, with the aforementioned berries showing again there is a bit of fluffy marshmellow and vanilla to temper the fruit tang, Its fine but maybe not the beer that I wanted at that time.
