A decent barrel aged barley wine - feels like weer & wind light. Toffee, vanilla, some coconut. Nice balance, but nothing extraordinary. Rune (13196) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2016

Rich taste of vanilla chocolate, dark caramel, nuts, and bread back by the bourbon touch. Full bodied lingering and warming down the swallow. Velvety mouth feel. Lovely (Oslo 09.11.2016). yespr (46790) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2016

Bottle at Bergen Ølfestival. A dark brown beer topped by a small beige head. Some oxidation in the aroma, with dried fruits, prunes and figs, some alcohol and chocolate hints. It’s full-bodied, warming and smooth on the palate. Some alcohol in the flavor, vanilla and coconut too, as well as dried fruits, oxidation notes and some chocolate. Lasting finish. A lovely one, although a bit on the warming side. 150905

Clear deep brown beer, small creamy beige head, pretty stable. Aroma: very sweet, caramel, vanilla, mocha, milk chocolate. MF: soft carbon, full body. Taste: lots and lots of chocolate, little bitter, vanilla, bourbon, alcohol, very balanced. Aftertaste: more of the same. Lovely beer!
Fra fat på ØST, Stavanger: fatlagring er tingen, og Mike er sjefen! Brunsvart med kort skum. Myk, fyldig og alkohokholdig aroma med mørkbrent kaffe, mørk sjokolade, mørke bær og vanilje. Smaken er kompleks, fyldig og so very smooth. Lekker og balansert ettersmak, denne var verdt en ekstra sykkeltur til byen, og jeg hadde gjerne tatt et glass til. Varmet i magen hele veien hjem. Barley wine/farlig god wine.
