Almost no hizz when opening the bottle. Cloudy brown color, very small bubbly off-white head. Alcohol, faint fruity, some light port wine, grainy, hints of lactic scent, mainly focused on alcohol though, some very faint marzipan and banana, higher alcohol and solvents. Sweet, salty, raisin, caramel, husky, prunes taste. Smooth, full, rich mouthfeel, low to medium low bitterness that sort of get enhanced by the alcohol. Raisin, port wine aftertaste. Scent also some yellow apples.

(gotten from Vinmonopolet Kirkenes during AIH40). Deep reddish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, raisins, some toffee, mild wood and alcohol. Flavour is quite similar. Nice old school British style BW.

Dark ruby color, not much head. Aroma has toffee, alcohol and bread. Full-bodied. Toffeish, warming, liquorice, quite strong grassy hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Lowish carbonation. Kind of old skool barley wine. Ok. In one year not much change I believe.
A bit of a let down, malty and sweet caramels in aroma. Follows in taste, but nothing really happends, its stays there. Perhaps too sweet, and definately would have been better with higher rates of hops.

@ Basunen 15-11-14: ganska maltig doft. Rätt söt. Även smaken är söt och maltig. Trevlig alkohol som värmer lite men smakmessig lite ensidig. Linnet (1832) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2015

Sample at SBWF 2015. Fruity and malty smell, also a bit boozy. Similar taste but not as boozy. Deep flavour.
