This rating is from the 2011 batch.
A: The pour is a dark amber color with high carbonation and an off-white head.
S: Smells barleywine-esque to begin with. Sweet caramel, toffee, and brown sugar aromas. The rye and caraway really provide a lot to the beer and are definitely noticeable. Mild hop aroma of citrus peel and floral notes.
T: A mild to moderate bitterness with plenty of toffee, bread, and brown sugar. Spicy rye notes with plenty of caraway providing a really distinctive flavor to this beer. The hop flavor is there, but not the main attraction.
M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. Maybe a bit high for a barleywine.
O: A good barleywine all around. Good aromas and flavors and not harsh or overly boozy. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2010
