50 cl bottle. BBE 15.03.2014.Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2009
Pours clear copper-amber color with a medium sized head. Aroma of goose berry bush, some ripe fruits, caramel, toffee and hay. Flavor of toffee, caramel, ripe fruits, hay, some hops and malts, some "danish berries" though. Decent.
It is hazy, red-brown with a beautiful, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, raisin, plum and figs. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, raisin, plum, caramel, figs, bread, light citrus and alcohol. The body is full and smooth, but IMO it could have been a bit more detailed and most of all, less sweet. Skinnyviking (9570) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2009

50cl bottle form Bierzwerg pours with a crystal clear copper body that supports a thin light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up lots of sweetness coming from notes like caramel, white chocolate, sugary toffee, blue wacky taffy and a bit of nuttiness. Intriguing, I get very little if any dark fruity esters. The taste is a big hit of sweetness that’s a lot like the nose where caramel, white chocolate, toffee, wacky taffy and then it slides into a light degree of brown sugar coated prunes and figs. Interesting stuff but it seems the esteriness could be a bit more forward to add more balance. Svesse (8600) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2010
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 9 Oct 2010) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of red berries, caramel and vinous hints of alcohol. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, red berries, sweet and vinous finish with a spicy bitterness. Almost full body, fairly sweet with warming alcohol. Nice barley wine, possibly a bit boozy. laiti (8469) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2013
