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. It’s not a warming, loving barley wine. It’s more a rough and ready alcohol bomb. Just read this has nelson sauvin on it, but I think the character of the hop doesn’t quite come through. The flavour it leaves on your mouth is a long lasting malty finish, with some wine like hints.
Tumma, punertavanruskea olut pienehköllä beigellä vaahdolla. Makea ja maltainen, jopa vihannesmainen/sahtimainen tuoksu, joka ei puhuttele omalla kohdalla kovin mairittelevasti. Maku hedelmäinen ja makea, suutuntuma keskitäyteläinen. Ei tämä ihan pysty odotuksia täyttämään, mutta kiva yritys Laitilalta. 4.5.2013: Vaahtosi tällä kertaa varsin runsaasti. Ei muuten eroa aiempaan. TEJA (3056) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2016
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 (12723) - Tromsø, 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 (Tromsø 01.02.2016).

Flaske 330ml spandert av Rune. Delt med ham og djoeye i WCveien 1 Feb 15. Nydelig dyprød farge. Filmskum. Aroma av mandler. Overdose. Smaken lett syrlig. God - men lite variasjon. djoeye (4605) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2016

Look; deep clear ruby with the film.
Aroma; fruity almonds and bishop Wember’s 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.

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 (3634) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
