UPDATED: MAR 2, 2018 Rødbrun klar med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter brent karamell, svisker, alkohol og mørke frukter. Fyldig. Smaker bitter brent karamell, sitrus og pepper. Lang kraddel (9552) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2018
Pours nearly clear, dark amber. Small white head. Smell is dry, dark fruits. Sweet, some caramel. Taste is full, sharp barleywine with a sweet, sugary ending. Tad bitter. Bit thin for a BW. Medium to medium high carbo. Mild spices in the later taste and aftertaste. Ok. KnutAlbert (6837) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2018
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Hazy glowing brown. Low carbonation. Malty and herbal. Sweet, but not too cloying. She spruce adds a touch of forest. DutchDrebus (6401) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2018
Bottle @ home. Deep, clear amber to light brown colour with a small to medium sized, creamy beige head. Smells sweet, herbs, the herbs kinda smell hoppy I think, malty, nice. Tastes herbs, thyme, rosemary, sweet, malty. Full body, soft to medium carbo. Splitenz (418) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 Oddly non discript smell as the flavour is a strong almost pungent artificial candy fest. It reminds me of fruit smelling marker pens of the 1980s. The barley wine flavours are all fine but the rest seems arrificial. Good punchy strength though.

Veldig bra urtepreget barleywine. Irriterende at det ikke var noe sted å klikke for å få "rosemary" her! Faens dritt. Ødela totalopplevelsen og gjorde at jeg måtte gi lavere score. Tjomleif (291) - NORWAY - JAN 27, 2018

0,5 flaske på RBHD-samling, Bjørnøy jan-18: lett uklar rødlig rav med flott skum som varer. Granskudd, rosmarin og andre urter. Mørk karamell i den solide maltkroppen. Kvae og alkohol. I råeste laget for meg. Holmen2 (4434) - NORWAY - JAN 26, 2018
Shared bottle at RB/HD at Bjørnøy 26.01.18. Clear orange amber. Uneven, but persistent, off-white head and lacing. Perfectly balanced aroma and taste of red berries, dates and fermented fruits. Might have done with some more maturing. Sigmund (8153) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2018
Shared 500 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet Jørpeland. ABV is 11.4%, Deep brownish red colour, off-white head. Aroma of malts and over-ripe red berries, notes of herbs. Sweet malty flavour, distinct notes of strange herbs, some bittering hops in the finish. Weird, but interesting.
