COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took many extra steps to make this intense hoppy American-style barleywine to celebrate 10 years of brewing some of the most flavorful beers in the world. Selecting from the best hops this planet has to offer and Bourbon-barrel aging for 6 months was just the beginning for us. Then we went the extra mile and dry-hopped Barrel Aged In-Ten-Sity afterwards for a really great, fresh hop aroma. This hard work pays off creating a well-balanced barleywine with tons of character that will stand the test of time. Happy birthday to us, and cheers to you.

yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle, 22oz. Shared by meilby. A clear reddish brown beer with a small, firm beige head. Sweetish aroma with alcohol, dried fruits, some caramel, bread, pine cones and citrus zest. It's full-bodied, warming and with a nice carbonation. Dried fruits, caramel, bread notes, pine cones, citrus zest and a bit low bitterness. Lasting finish. I'd like a bit more bitterness in this one, but I'ts sure a fine one. A bit sweet too perhaps. 171111

07-OCT-2017, bottle @home, from Boxbeers, with Ulkløbben. Almost clear amber with a lasting, tan head. The full dried-fruit-explosion. Lasts for minutes. Bitter, sweet but not nearly as sweet as some. This is great.

Benzai (16682) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2017
Bottle @ Pre-Borefts tasting. Red-brown color, small to average sized beige head. Aroma is malts, caramel, heavy caramel hop sweet stickyness. Taste malts, caramel, sticky sweet, bourbon. Over the top imo. The balance is gone, the texture is thinnish and carbonation is medium, but the ABV and barrel aging is too much for the base beer it seems. Over the top and unbalanced imo. Too bad, I had high hopes for this one.
