Bottle from Plovmand, thanks! Lots of red fruit, bordering on Haribo gumbears, very sweet, very caramelly, with a weird metallic note. It’s so sweet, it makes your teeth hide inside your gum, and your tongue roll together. The second problem I have with this beer is the overabundance of alcohol. This beer makes a raw impression, as if it wasn’t conditioned for the right amount of time. And this sweetness and this alcohol dampen all the flavour there is. Unfortunately, again.

Aroma is yeast, dark fruit, candy sugar and lightly roasted malts. Taste is sweet malts a sweet plum, apple and candy sugar. A nice bitterness follows that is balanced nicely. Appearance is an amber/orange cloudy body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Flaska från SB som är två-tre år gammal. Svårt att veta exakt då BBD är domedagen! Relativt stiltypisk brittsk BW åtminstone efter tre år i källaren. Massor av maltsöta smaker av marsipan, honung, torkad frukt men en torrare lite citrusbesk avslutning avslöjar att humle fortfarande finns där. Väldigt bra balans. Rikigt gott

Pours deep mahogany into a snifter. Tan head with excellent retention recedes leaving no lacing. Sweet caramel and resin aromas. Thick with dark caramel and toffee upfront turning to deep resin in the lasting finish. Alcohol well hidden.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, caramel, candy sugar, syrup, honey and dried apricots. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, dried fruit, apricots, papaya, treacle, honey and a fiery finish with a generous resinous bitterness. Almost full body, quite sweet. Possibly a touch too sweet, with a fair amount of alcohol shining through, but the chewy texture and generous bitterness holds it together well. Not exceptionally balanced, but a well made barley wine. Very nice.

"deep fruits, caramel, plum. little hop presence. masks the abv quite well. low carbonation, and a bit thick, making it a decent sipper. i liked it, bit wasn’t blown away, though another friend thought it was the best of the night."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly fruity with berries on the nose. The taste is sweet, caramel, slightly fruity and light alcohol. Good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Easy to drink and minimal carbonation which appeals to me. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle bought at systembolaget late 2011. Beautiful deep clear deep red liquid with a nice compact big off white head. Aroma is spreading in the room. Aroma is of sweet fruits, raisins, lots of caramel and toffee, dates, dark fruits, sugars, bready. Smells amazing! Taste: a nice sweet flavor in there with caramel, milk chocolate and fruits. Perfect level of carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden but still detectable. Really nice flavour. Positively surprised by this one! I think some years in my cellar did this beer good :)

Mörka söta toner, kanske lite russin. Fyllig mikrofonen, ABVn lyser igen lite. Balans i smaken, beska och alkohol i eftersmaken.
