Pure class! Beautiful aroma of coffee, grass, red berries and several other things. Taste of licorice and a perfect level of bitterness. Lovely-looking too.

Converting ticks to ratings. Had this at PINT Winterbierfestival '11 or '12. I remember it to be very sweet, metallic, overripe fruits, raisins, leafy hops. Wasn't a big fan of this.

Holmen1 (6465) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2015
Fra flaske ombord på Fridtjofen (RBHD!) aug-15: rødbrun uten skum. Aroma og smak av sherry, malt, molasse, svisker, fiken og hjemmelaget plommesyltetøy som har begynt å gjære. Er den en smule oksydert? Heldigvis har ikke humlene avgått ved døden slik at den ikke fremstår som oversøt.

Shared bottle at RB/HD on board Fridtjofen 23.08.15. Pale brown. Small, beige head. Very sweet aroma and taste of malt, fermented plums, berries and sirup. Similar taste. Long aftertaste.

Sigmund (7906) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2015
Shared 330 bottle. Hazy cognac colour, minimal off-white head. Typical oxidised barleywine aroma, molasses and oak galore. Very moderate carbonation. The flavour is not as sweet as the aroma made me fear, quite good actually. Oaky, with sufficient hops. Well balanced.

abemorsten (3683) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2015
Klar dyp oransje kropp med små partikler i. Honning blant duftene. Kraftig søt med en litt emmen pappaktig bitterhet. Delt 0,33 l flaske på RBHD-samling på Fridtjoffen, august 2015.

gunnar (9690) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2015
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours almost clear brown, no head. Aroma of typica BW, lots of malty fruityness. Taste is moderate sweet, loaded with malts, harsh bitter resiny finish.

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Troebel rood bruin bier met kraagje. Aroma is wat zuurig. Smaak is mooi vol, wat zuur met in de afdronk een licht bittertje.

rikstar (2607) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
0,33l fles gedeeld bij bryanvdv. Geur is zoet met een zuurtje fruitig als abrikozen en rozenbotteljam meer op de achtergrond cacao. Smaak begint zoetmetwederom het fruitzuurtje ook cramel in de nasmaak een gistbittertje in het einde van de afdronk.

nimbleprop (8743) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 14, 2014
12oz bottle thanks to IPhonephan pours a hazy amber with some cloudy, clumpy white head. Nose is nice and leathery, orange, earthy leaves, caramel, brown sugar. Flavor is mildly sweet, candy, earthy, leathery, orange, some bubblegum, a tad leafy as well. Super smooth finish. Aged out well.

solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Lots of caramel and good hops quotient. Sweet finish. Pours orange with good head and lacing. Light bitterness. Nice package. Bottle thanks to iPhonephan.
