UPDATED: MAY 11, 2015 Rich deep brown coloured body with a faint tan head. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, nuts, earth, grain, pit fruits and a lot of alcohol. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong caramel and nutty notes with a lot of pit fruits and raisins throughout along with a big malt body, some alcohol and slightly bourbony notes with a lot of unfinished sugars. Aftertaste shows that malt, apples, grain and oak notes that show up, with a lot of alcohol and some how even more pitfruits than in the flavour. Overall, a nice fresh barley wine, but this would only get better and more smooth over time. Great to sample and definitely worth searching out for if you can get it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Zupan’s (Burnside) in Portland, Oregon, yesterday on 02-May-2015 for US$12,49 sampled in my hotel room day later, here in Portland, on 03-May-2015. gyllenbock (10034) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2015
