Dark red mahogany color; creamy head. The aroma is alcoholic, with light caramel. It has a medium body strength, not to be confused with the alcohol, that immediately gets in the mouth; there is some caramel and mild chocolate flavor, with traces of vegetables. Wrong and extremely alcoholic; a "malty malt liquor". I won’t spend more words, as this beer doesn’t deserve much.

Hazy dark amber color; creamy head; sticky lace. It has a very mild aroma, of malt, and something similar to a Malt Liquor. It’s full bodied, with a strong malt and caramel flavor, unfortunately for me corrected by a too strong sweet liquorice in the beginning; the liquorice then disappears a bit, and some sweet nutty trace comes in. It’s quite bitter and the final is long, with the malt too and the alcohol gently warms the mouth. Quite good, but the liquorice is not my liking.

I think that to much hops bitterness in a Barley Wine some what spoils the library atmosphere of the beer. An atmosphere that I like very much and constantly returns to, But not with this barley wine. I rather have Gudelös in the glass. Defreni (3254) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2008
Fad. Flot mørk ravfarvet øl, med et godt bid. Første indtryk er en fin engelsk BW, men langsomt sniger der sig en medicinsk note ind der bliver til en ordentlig gang hostesaft, hvilket gør at den kun kan nydes i meget begrænset mængder. Dette trækker 0.4 point ned. saxo (18940) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are fruits, malt, hops and flowers. Quite vinous.
