Mörkt rödbrun, klar, nästan inget skum.
Doft: torkad frukt, aningen vin, banan, lite syrlig, aningen kaffe, lite spritig.
Smak: söt, torkad frukt, honung, söt, avslagen, aningen vinig. sharkydodson (1549) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAR 12, 2017
the aroma is fruity and caramel with hints of brown bread, toffee, bisquit, milk chocolate and raisin... the taste is caramel and fruity with notes of milk chocolate, brown bread, toffee, dark fruits, red wine and some spices... sweet, bitter and dry aftertaste...

750ml bottle from Systembolaget, vintage 2014. Hazy mahogany, minimal head that disappears quickly and completely, no lacing. Sweet dried fruit aroma, raisins, figs, sugar, bread, woody and earthy. Full-bodied, not carbonated at all almost, sweet and silky mouthfeel. Tastes of raisins and brown sugar, fruit cake, earthy and leafy notes. Sweet and warming finish. Too sweet overall.

Aroma is malty with raw alcohol and some yeast. Taste is at first pretty OK, with darker fruits and sweeter malts, but when it warms up a bit - the alcohol gets annoying and in your face. Taste a little bit like a "bus-grogg". I’m not really sure if this bottle was correct? Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2016

Dottle. Bronze color. Aroma: dried fruits, raisins and port wine, malt, nectar, sweet, floral. Taste: Crimean white porto, raisins, dried fruit, nectar, slightly hop bitterness. Not bad. CloakedDagger (2440) - - AUG 11, 2016
Bottle 75 cl. Pours an almost clear, dark reddish amber with no head what so ever - beer is completelt flat. Nose is boozy, oxidized, very raisiny. Body is rich, again lots of raisins, wood, but the booze is a bit rough and dominant make the beer rather edgy. And the lack of carbonation is a bit primitive - like some old school British BW. 110816 Abijen (2571) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2016
Oranje bruin bier met geen schuim kraag. Ruikt zoet, zoet fruit, vanille. Smaakt zoet, drop, rood fruit, alcohol. Too much. ramboraffe (2240) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2016
750 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Murky brown with off white head. Malty with caramel, dried fruit and alcohol. Semi sweet with medium bitterness and low carbonation. Rasmus40 (20307) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy reddish brown with a tiny off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, dried fruit and alcohol. Flavor is very sweet and moderate bitter. Sweet finish with lots of warming alcohol. Oily and a bit sticky. I prefer my Barley Wines less sweet or at least with a balancing bitterness. 100316
