neongolden (1385) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
(375ml bottle sample @ VilleValla Pub, Linkping, Sep 1 2016) Pours fairly clear pale reddish-brown with a huge pile of off white head. Aroma of burnt sugar, toasted grains, nuts, sweet darker malts, touches of dark fruit and citrus, bittering hops. Flavour is reasonably sweet but counteracted by rather hefty bitterness, toasted grains and toffee, candied orange, a bit of dark fruit, slight breadiness to the malt, nuttiness. Finish is rather dry and bitter with more toasted grain, some bittering hops, slight citrus peel, a bit of alcohol heat. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Quite decent barley wine, nothing really stuck out for me though.

Uit de fles geschonken. Mooi rood-bruin bier met mooie schuimkraag. Aromas van barley, caramel en hop. Smaak is zoet, bitter, tonen van barley, hop, mout, wat citrus-zest. Een mooie barley, smaakvol.

Flaska p rebro lcaf. Vintage 2011, ca 8 mnader efter bst fre-datum. Mrk brunrd vtska med krmbeiget skum. Stor, fyllig men samtidigt dov doft av kandisocker, smrkola, torkad frukt a la fikon och dadlar, portvin, inlagda krsbr, madeira och kanske lite konjak. Kropp t det ngot strre hllet. Relativt len och med en vrmande alkoholton. Nra doften i smaken med mycket smrkola och en brighet frn inlagda krsbr och fikonsylt. Fortfarande beska kvar i avslutningen. ldern p len mrks av tydligt, med en typisk mer matt smakbild som gr djupare och lter smakerna ligga kvar lngre. Med andra ord har det gjort den vl.
