Bottle from Systembolaget, special order.
Inviting malty aroma, complex. Pepper, malt, bisquits, plums, raisins, brandy. Lovely tipple, a bit of a raw edge, this would get even better with time. alkolas510 (1382) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2015
Mörkbrun/röd med litet vit skum. Doftar och smakar russin, karamellmalt, choklad och är ganska sött men med bra beska! Riktigt bra! ! Cool_Bond (2647) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2013
Tropical fruit aroma. Caramel flavor and slightly sweet. No alcohol taste which is a plus. Long aftertaste. According to me, this is one of the better Barleywine that I tried. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings. olsvammel (7216) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2013
Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2013. Sweet malty smell with caramel and cyrup. Similar taste. Feels like it will age well. Lawger (275) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2015
Pours a deep and dirty chestnut brown with small off-white head. Fridge cold aroma has a nice, nutty and sweet maltiness with some toffee notes. As it warms up the toffee and butterscotch-notes intensifies along with some resinous woodyness. Really very pleasant nose. Medium+ bodied palate. The sweetness is balanced and not at all over the top like I feared because of the addition of honey. Good, creamy mouthfeel, low bitterness and good finish. Will probably buy a few to cellar.
