UPDATED: DEC 4, 2012 Murky dark orange, small bubbly head. Dough, fennel seeds, fermented fruit. Nice. Smooth, alcoholic body and sharp sweet tones. Yes, lots of sugary sweetness but I like it. (At Pint Winterbier Festival 2012) Bosbouw (3037) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Bruinrode kleur met geen schuim. Ruikt zoetig, vanille, crème. Smaakt zoetig, vanille en crème. Beetje alcohol nasmaak. Iets dun.
Update de imperial barley wine. Smaakt aanzienlijk beter. Zoetig, vanille, alcohol, zacht. Rating obv barley wine. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Bottled. Hazy deep orange/pale brown colour with a mediumsized white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is toffee, some sweet fruits and mild alcoholic notes. Flavour is tropical fruits along with some bitterness and mild sweet malts and alcohol. Very simplistic as such, and the fruitiness really surprised me in a positive way. More like a Belgian Strong Ale than Quadrupel though... MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Gusher! Pours a murky brown beer with a big tanned head. Aroma has ripe fruits and loads of yeast. Flavor is very sweet, light alcoholic. Again full of yeasty, fruity esters. Not very impressive, but still enjoyable. Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at home, the 13% ABV version, poured into a trappist glass.
Small off-white head. Body has a deep dark orange colour, moslty clear. The head has an okay retention considering it’s small size, big bubble islands left on the surface and a ring of lacing around the glass’s walls.
Aroma is fruity, with peaches and apricots, sugar, quite sweet as an aroma, reminds me of..what? Fruit flavoured medicine somehow, or maybe vitamines. Not necessarily bad. Soem white grapes too, with a touch of tartness in it.
Taste is malty, with grains, caramel, little bit of nuts, sugar, peaches. Some grapes again, tasting "dirty", like a homemade harsh wine, soil. The alcohol very well hidden as a flavour but notable as a warming feeling on the body and after a while as a buzzing feeling in the head. Still, quite complex.
Body is medium, carbonation is okay. Dry on the palate but also kind of sticky.
Overall a pretty decent and surely interesting beer. Klein Duimpje surprises me pleasantly lately with some of their brews.
