COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of fruit like orange, tangerine and sweet apples. It’s powerful and full bodied but still easy going. Although the name would suggest otherwise, it’s our favourite amongst the female clientele yet also highly appreciated by the other sex. Well hopped as always, but the obvious alcohol and the massive malt and fruit character restrict the hops to the background, only to reveal itself in the finish. Full bodied, notes of champagne. Champagne mousse after pouring in the glass. Grapes and a hint of mandarin curacao in the aroma, together with a hint of vin mousseux. Malty sweet flavor, immensely full bodied, with mandarine curacao and vinous notes. Thick mouthfeel, just a touch of yeast in the aftertaste. Huge beer. ABV on the label reduced from 15 to 11.9%. Recipe remains the same

Reddish amber colour with medium off-white head.Quite vinous with prunes, plums nad raisins sticking out. 15,2ABV, so the alcohol is noticable, but Im surpriced how well the alcohol is hidden, and it comes out quite balanced. . A really good beer. Top notch!

2013-09-21. Lightly hazy dark amber body, headless. 3+ Aroma is quite boozy, sweet malt is fruity, with notes of brown sugar and caramel. Flavour is similar, fairly alcoholic, intensely but not harshly so. Mild fruity notes throughout, sweet sugary caramel undertones. Smooth average bodied palate, low carbonation makes it feel lighter than it would otherwise. A big one, I like it but I need more depth to offset the booze. Bottle at The Only Cafe, Toronto

Gurthnar (6172) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle shared by Cuso, many thanks! Aroma is sweet malty, raisins, plums, light light coffee. Tempting. Lightly hazy amber brown colour. Taste is really strong sweet malty. Truly a barley wine, more fitting, than any I have tasted so far. Raisins, malt, pear, plum. Brandy. Alcohol evident, but here it is a servant, not lord. Another jewel from deMolen. Might not suit everyone, suits me well enough. The ABV is truly in the upper range and it has got a kick, but you have to appreciate that. This beer applies full measures.

Karol (941) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle provided by Cuso. Many thanks! Alcohol dominates this barley wine style beer completely. A lot of fruit is present although a barley wine style beer is not yet me cup of tea I find it very enjoyable. It will take a lot of time to drink just a small volume. We shared this bottle among a half a dozen of people.
