Rating #3000.Brown color with a beige head, good retention with nive lacework.Aroma has notes of molasses, toffee, toasted malts and caramel. Flavor is mild sweet at the beginning, notes of caramel, ripe fruit, some plumbs. Mild bitterness in the final with a creamy and smooth mouthfeel on palate. Also some caramelish hints are present with the alcohol hidden by ripe fruits. Bosbouw (2899) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2015

From a 650ml bottle on 16/12/2015 (another early Xmas gift from my wondeful wife). Pours a cloudy light amber with a small head. Has a big malty nose, with heaps of caramel, toffee and butterscotch, with some piney hops in the background. This is a very flavoursome beast - sweet malt dominates, with caramel, toffee and honey, with some rye bread in there as well. This is countered by big resiny piney hops. While you can tell it’s a big beer, it’s still quite easy to drink. The texture is a bit syrupy with modest carbonation. This is a bold, complex, lovely and impressive barley wine. leghorn99 (254) - roma, ITALY - NOV 1, 2015
Si presenta di un profondo color mogano, leggermente torbida, con riflessi rame; schiuma abbondante, chiara, compatta, di buona persistenza. L’aroma è pungente, alcolico, dolce, liquoroso; note agrumate e leggero torbate. In bocca rispetta quanto percepito al naso: inizialmente si percepisce malto e note di uva passa, in seguito caramello, agrumi, al palato rimane morbida. E’ corposa, dalla bassa carbonazione, note resinose; gran mix tra sapori dolci e quelli amari, per un ottimo equilibrio.

10-SEP-2015, bottle @Delirium Hoppy Loft, with Ulkløbben.
Hazy amber with lasting off-white head. Very malty. Chocolate - does that come from aged hops?
Spice, malt, caramel. A bit tired and a little dusty perhaps but still a very nice drink.
