COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Theres plenty of fruit like orange, tangerine and sweet apples. Its powerful and full bodied but still easy going. Although the name would suggest otherwise, its 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

@ Havregatan. Flaska frn Systembolaget (57:-). Mycket fruktiga toner i doften tillsammans med kola och rostad malt. I den sta smaken finns det frukt, kola och karamell. Den hga alkoholhalten mrks inte speciellt mycket i smaken.

Reddish-brown, clear, small head. Aroma: soy sauce, dry fruits, plums, caramel, hay, spices, chocolate. Heavy cloying sweetness, full body, medium bitterness. Yeasty and fruity flavour, dry fruits, again soy sauce. Alcohol not quite hidden, but matching. Very oily and sticky. 4 months after bottling and lots of soy sauce?

Ciemnomiedziane, zero piany. W aromacie dość intensywnie, toffi, karmel, trochę chleba, figi, daktyle, suszone, kandyzowane owoce, melasa. Smak oczywiście zdominowany przez słodycz i owoce, ale nie jest mdląco słodkie. Nieco biszkoptowe, trochę mandarynek i posmakw winnych. Goryczka niska. Alkohol wyczuwalny, ale nie do przesady, jedynie lekkie rozgrzewanie. Ciało jak można się spodziewać pełne, wysycenie niskie, bez zarzutu.

Tognetta (777) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 18, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2016 Marrom avermelhada de mdia turbidez, espuma bege escura de mdia formao e persistncia. Aroma inicia com malte e uvas escuras, figo, lcool ganha intensidade com o aumento da temperatura, cassis. Dulor intenso e predominante, s resqucios de amargor da torrefao e lpulo. Corpo licoroso e baixa carbonatao. Final de longa persistncia, aveludado, focado em cassis e passas com malte e lcool em segundo plano, desce muito bem apesar dos quase 12%. Umas das barleywine de melhor drinkability que j bebi.

Slautar (546) - Gdask, POLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Warka 20.07.41. Aromat przy pierwszym podejściu to dominujący karmel rozpuszczony w białym płwytrawnym winie. Chwile pźniej kontrolę nad nadal winnym aromatem przejmuja owoce z zielonym jabłkiem w lipowym miodzie na czele. Są tu też rodzynki, nieco suszonej śliwki i odrobina rafinerii. Owocowo słodkie lecz nie za słodkie, karmelowo gęste i przyjemnie lepkie z owocowo - winną goryczką zachęcającą do kolejnych łykw. Bardzo dobre piwo.

Jashiu (211) - Gdask, POLAND - OCT 29, 2016
Tap @Pulapka Gdansk. Aroma is full of ripe fruit sweet scents - dates, plums, berries, raisins - its all here. Very intensive fruit cocktail topped off with some wine-ish scents. Pours dark ruby brown with small tan head. Taste is malty sweet with biscuits and caramel, a lot of fruity tastes with citrus and red fruit in the front. Some wood and wine notes in the background. Feels oily and full, like liquor which goes good with the fact its sweet. Overall great warming beer thats perfect for the autumn evening...
