JKaranka's rating

Looks terrible, sort of murky brown. Massive tainted white head, very hard to get rid of. Flavour is alcohol, malts, some roast, fairly bitter. Hard to get a grasp on this one. Its not a warming, loving barley wine. Its more a rough and ready alcohol bomb. Just read this has nelson sauvin on it, but I think the character of the hop doesnt quite come through. The flavour it leaves on your mouth is a long lasting malty finish, with some wine like hints.

mice (914) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Tumma, punertavanruskea olut pienehkll beigell vaahdolla. Makea ja maltainen, jopa vihannesmainen/sahtimainen tuoksu, joka ei puhuttele omalla kohdalla kovin mairittelevasti. Maku hedelminen ja makea, suutuntuma keskitytelinen. Ei tm ihan pysty odotuksia tyttmn, mutta kiva yritys Laitilalta. 4.5.2013: Vaahtosi tll kertaa varsin runsaasti. Ei muuten eroa aiempaan.

Firm and lasting light brown head. Dark amber / medium brown color. Unpure vegetable aroma with some red fruit and strong alcohol aroma. Big body and bitterness.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2016
330ml bottle stored in my cellar for almost two years. Bought at Alko Kemi in May 2014. Shared at a drinking session with djoeye and Finn. A filmy layer over a deep red brown coloured body. Smell of almond, dried fruits and mid-sweet malts. Mixed taste of berry fruit, almond, toffee and molasses. Dry and roasted malty finish. Fine bodied. Decent sipper qualities (Troms 01.02.2016).

Finn (7039) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
Flaske 330ml spandert av Rune. Delt med ham og djoeye i WCveien 1 Feb 15. Nydelig dyprd farge. Filmskum. Aroma av mandler. Overdose. Smaken lett syrlig. God - men lite variasjon.

djoeye (4409) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2016
Look; deep clear ruby with the film. Aroma; fruity almonds and bishop Wembers wooden preach. Taste; wooden roasted malts, dark syrup, hops make the bitter touch - finishes with the balance. Palate; solid, patience. Overall; yeah, not bad. It was evening. [[email protected] w Rune&Finn, BB.now]

Bottle. Pours a dark brown, small head. Aroma is caramel, dried fruit, some salty liquorice. Taste follows along the same lines, more salty liquorice, less caramel and dark fruit. Alright.

nihtila (3433) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
3.5.2014. Dark red colour, light brown head disappearing quickly. Aroma of malts, raisin, berries. Taste is very sweet, like liquor, with malts and some bitterness (too much for the style) in finish. Bitter, sour and sweet.
