Draught at SBWF 2010 (Elixir Wine). It poured a hazy amber liquid with a small white head. This is a well balanced Barley Wine, with a thick malty body and nice sweetness. caesar (7162) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2009

Deep amber. Bubbly head.
Sweet and malty with low bitterness. McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from trade with Meilby - thank you, Kenni. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with an steady head and medium to smooth body. Wonderful aroma of intense barley, plums and warm bread. Taste of barley, malt, wine, sherry, chocolate, plums, prunes and vanilla. Hints of rum and oak. Very warming, quaffable and tasty beer. Loved it.

Bottle from the zwergs. Amber brown. Butterscotch vanilla, burnt caramel, some darker fruity notes, towards raisins. Full bodied, with sweet cola flavours. Interesting. Isn’t as dark musty as many, but really cola- like sweet. Overripe musty fruits. I’m not really a fan of the style, but nice clean flavourful stuff. KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 14, 2011
Beautiful deep amber, lively carbonation, fine head. Dark fruit, wood and vinous aroma.
Lovely flavour, too. Prunes, port, nuts and oak. Sweet and dry. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2011
Small vast yellow ish head, that disappears very slow.
Very hazy amber/orange colored beer.
Smell fruit, orange, malts, caramel, light toasted malts, barleys. Smells good.
Taste is even better: sticky barleys, sticky malts, some sweets like caramel, some light brown sugars, herbs, light bitter and the slightest hint of honey.
Nice (sticky) barley/malty light bitter/herby aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and an oily sticky thick creamy texture.
Delicious beer, well balanced and smooth. MichaelAwesome (6519) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Nice and thick one here shared with McTapps. High drinkability, high gravity and lots of fruity + dark aromas. Berries, plums, some malt and alcohol. Reminding me of a high alcohol fruit syrup = special but fine. Beer5000 (6492) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2010
Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Amber body with a nice off-white head. Aroma of sweet, ripe fruit, malt and some alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, some roast, dry fruit, warming alcohol and moderate bitter. Rather sweet, but very nice.
