COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Did you also at some point in your life get seduced by promising words like ’probably the best in the world’, ’it works every time’ etc.? This American Barley Wine Ale says it how it is. It’s intense, attention seekingly hoppy, and definitely your kind of beer. A beer with a big ego, drive and a huge thirst for recognition.

"this beer is pretty intense with a load of caramel malts and a sweet citric hop bite as well as a little alcohol. that said, it is quite enjoyable when searching for a deep, dark, in your face sipper. a little pricey, but damn good."

Pinball (12332) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2012
Approx 0.75 litre bottle from ølbutikken. clear dark brown, smooth large light brown head. Aroma is a mix of bitter malty and slightly sweet caramelly notes, The bitter malts have a spicy note to them.Sweet hoppy note, but not very strong in the aroma. Flavor is quite typically american ipa , bordering to barley wine. lots of flowery and sweet hops, lots of caramelly and bitter malts, towards the aftertaste the bitter malts take over and together with alcohol create a peppery feel to the beer. Flavor reminds me of some of lagunata’s brews. the hops get citrussy at times, which is a bit too "flowery" for my taste for a barley wine. All in all a pretty tasty US style barley wine or double IPA or something in between.
