Slightly light BW. Fine body and still nice power in flavour. Good hoppy too. TorbenJensen (1532) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2015
It has really nice aroma with lots of fruit. The flavor is sweet and has again very productive, especially an expression of dried fruit like raisins, dates and figs. It is a very elegant barley wine where alcohol heat only stand out and round out the flavor in a brilliant way. PtiBisc (29) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
Beautiful red beer with a sugar scent and dried raisins. Its taste is a long lasting but yet delicate dried raisins and prunes. Really enjoyable anytime. Cheers! Gerbeer (3795) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
500 ml bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with huge gushing head. Aromas of caramel, candi sugar and sweet malts. Flavors of brown sugar syrup, toasted malts, and very light bitter hops. Still quite sweet even after a some aging. KennethArd (579) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2014
Vinous fruitiness & malt sweetness. Clear red with large creamy head. Lightly sweet & a bowl of fruit. Medium body, creamy texture & soft carbonation.

Brown bodied and rich head. Thick malty aroma, resin, concentrated fruit, dark caramel, pine trees. Delicious, but only the start. It?s the concentrated powerful and mouth filling taste that blows my mind. Woody and aged yet rich and sweet, with enough herbal bitterness yet never too sticky and certainly not thin. I though the 50cl biter were way too big for a barrel aged barley wine. But at this taste I have no problem sipping on it until forever. Stunning!

50cl bottle, imagine I pop the cap and it starts its volcano impression and sprays beer all over the place creating a mighty mess. It pours dark slightly murky copper with a towering tan head of foam. The aroma offers up spicy rye bread wort as well as some mild vague hoppy notes. A few whiffs later and the wort takes on a brown sugar coated soggy prunes character. The taste begins sweet with brown sugar and sweet malts mixing with ripe cherries and prunes quickly moves into an earthy sweetened black tea note. Into the finish these flavors intensify into a sort of nectar goodness. This started off poorly with the messy un-capping but I am really enjoying the flavor. The play between sweet fruity esters, malts and tea leaf like earthiness works very well. tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2012

Bottle at Rene’s house. Thanks. Reddish violet appearance with a big, brown head. Somewhat fruity, a bit tart, slightly funky, caramel, toasty oak aroma. Grape, tangy plum, somewhat tart, toasty malty, fairly sweet flavor. Interesting beer. Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2012
Pours dark, dark red with brown hints. Small head. The aroma is a blend of buttery coconut/woodsy oak, bready/caramelly malt and citric/resinous/woodsy hops alongside a light fruitiness. Notable alcohol. The flavour is light to medium sweet, near medium bitter and light acidic. Citrus, wood/oak, dry-ish malt and some alcohol. The mouthfeel is soft at first but the tart and almost astringent finish is a downer. Light carbonation. Citric astringent finish. Medium bodied.
