1 finger off-white head.
Hazy, brown-ish to ruby coloured beer.Lore (3023) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 18, 2018
Aroma is soaked raisins, caramel, dried figs, overripe, fruity hops, dusty wood, lightly smoked and leather.
Taste is bitter herbs, really burnt sugar, dried dark fruits, plum jam and bready malts.
Mouthfeel is well balanced between bitterness, sweetness and carbonation. Really drinkable for the ABV while somewhat retaining a sipper-like quality. Only missing more stickiness and a fuller body.
Overall: I really wish this beer didn't have that severly burnt, ashy taste to it. It lingers, it's quite dominant and it drags the beer down. Other than that, it's tasty and well-made. Good stuff!
hazy reddish brown colour, medium sized yellowish-beige-ish head; aroma of licorice, some anise, acetic acidy and woody-tannine notes; taste is dominated by herbal-gall-like bitterness - in a completely undrinkable way...pfffff - huge disappointment! :-( Roby Zu (1) - - FEB 17, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 Una birra sorprendente i profumi vanno dal torrefatto al tannino del legno. Molto ben fatta Rune (14060) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2018
341ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes. Close to clear amber coloured body, lasting beige head, clingy lacing. Dried fruity aroma joined by a touch of liquorice. Blended flavours of almond, raisin, mid-sweet fruit and bread. Warming, bittersweet fruity ending, lingering for quite a while. Fine depth. Well pleased. (Tromsø 10.02.2018).

From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Watching Taken 3. Roasted caramel, children sweets, noticeable alcohol warmth yet not much bothering. A bit unidimensional Bro_Cube (41) - - FEB 7, 2018
Niezbyt fajna goryczka, zalegająca, przeszkadzająca, niezbalansowane niestety. Goryczka przykrywa całkiem przyjemne nuty słodowe. Do tego nieułożony alkohol. Rozgrzewające. Przeciętne. Finn (8556) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2018
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Sentrum. Mørk amber. Høyt tett skum som daler veldig sakte. Lett bæaroma. Smaken bær & syrlig frukt på en bakgrunn av malt. Varmende alkoholisk ettersmak. Litt tundrikkelig. Inbreak (6829) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2018
30.01.2018, 0,34l bottle @ home:KansaiBeerLvrs (5569) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 26, 2018
Nice slightly bubbly-creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet and harsh yeasty, weeds, almond essence, harsh yeast, fruit stones, candi sugar, caramel malts, booze, minerals, sour grass, overripe banana. Taste is harsh mineraly, weeds, harsh yeast, candi sugar, booze, almond essence, fruit stones, caramel malts, bark, soil, medicine. Longlasting harsh bitterness, dry medical mouthfeel. Drainpour! Barley wine? No! Bad quad? Definitely...
Bottle picked up by my brother for. An opaque orange-gold with a filmy tan head, typical barleywine really. The nose gave prunes, figs, raisins, bready with some sharpness from the alcohol (but not too much) and a bit of spice. A much maltier and richer body, not overly bitter. Not as complex as the nose but gives you some spice and breadiness. A nice beer. I have a few more cellaring at the folks from that same 2016 batch I believe...
