From 0.33l bottle to original Kalteneker Tulip glass. BBD: 20.02.2016 APP: Pours cloudy dark amber cherry-red liquid. Small tan to brown head . Aroma: intensive cherry, candied fruits, raisins, coriander, red fruits, red wine or even Porto wine, bit alcohol, banana, in the background very slightly some peppery spruce freshness. Taste: Heavy sweet, light bitter, light sour. Once more time candied fruits, red fruits, red wine, spruce, some spices-coriander, juniper, but bit more bold in comparison with the aroma. The aftertaste is intense and log, but too sweat. Almost no bitterness (this would add some kick to the beer :D ). Some alcohol present, but well hidden in the good way. Palate: full body, creamy texture (your sensations are like you have just drunk some home made full cream milk from mountains). soft carbonation. Long sweet creamy finish. Excellent beer, perhaps could work more on the more complex taste and aftertaste, so the beer could be so good as the aroma of the beer is :) All the way excellent very drinkable spicy barley wine. Would pair with some double cream cakes, or fruit cakes. Or perhaps also some fruit marinated game, pheasant or duck. yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle, 1 liter, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. It pours an unclear, brown body under a small, beige head. The aroma is mostly malty, with caramel, dark bread and some piney hops. Some alcoholic notes in the flavor, with caramel, roasted malts and a pleasant bitterness. Pretty warming on the palate, full-bodied and sweet, with a nice carbonation level. Lasting, warming finish. Overall, way too warming, but it’s nice anyway. Sweet and caramel-ish. Like it. 140215 Meilby (11791) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
