Heavy brown 500ml bottle into pint glass. Pour is clear copper coloured with a thick collar of cream/yellow-tinged foam that laces nicely. Strong enticing richly treacly and roasted malt aromas with a hint of alcohol. Flavour is rich medium sweet malts with a bittersweet hop finish. Lovely velvety smooth mouthfeel with a medium to full body and low carbonation. ABV very well hidden (danger!). Another winner from this excellent brewery. gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle. Alcohol aroma is apparent from the pour, which is red brown with a rapidly diminishing head. Taste is malty with some orange, a slight bitterness and a finishing alcohol burn. saxo (19583) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2010

500ml bottle, copper color,white semithick head. Hoppy aroma with citrus and apricot. Flavour has also apricot, caramel and licorique, sourness and some bitterness at the end. Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2010
Pours a clear copper amber. Off white head that fades to fine lace fast. Fruity hop caramel aroma. Taste is bit sweet caramel brown sugar. Medium carbonation and body. Smooth, pretty well rounded. Finish is clean and sweet, earthy grainy. Lacks bitterness. Okay brew. Nothing special. I doubt if I would drink it again.

[2652-20091211] Cask. Sweet heavy grainy malt aroma. Clear, dark amber red body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Sweet thick syrupy grainy malt flavour. Medium body is bitter and thick. Not bad, fairly golden and pridey.

Bottle. Clear reddish-copper color with a medium, quickly-diminishing, white head. Nice aroma with biscuity malt, toffee, caramel, fruity notes and some hops. Flavor starts with some sweet chewy maltiness and caramel, and continues with a pleasant, somewhat spicy, hop bitterness and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Pretty good.

Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Light malty-sweetness and moderate bitter vry well-balanced flavor. Long nice finish. Creamy palate. Much better than many barleywines...... manuchampions (1245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2010
(Bottled) Slightly hazy reddish amber color with a medium, thick and foamy head. Barley-wineous, quite sweet-toffeeish aroma with rye-puddingy maltiness. Medium to full-bodied, slightly fizzy-carbonated, sticky-sugary palate. A quite nice strong ale - although quite sweet and sticky. Not bad at all.
