COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously Nils Oscar Karl-David 70 Celebration Ale at 9.4%.

Med samma recept har man redan firat ägarens 70-årsdag, vunnit guld- samt två silvermedaljer på Stockholm Beer Festival i oktober 2012. Det är en Barley Wine fullproppad med smak. Här rymmer hela 7 olika sorters malt och oraffinerat socker från vackra Mauritius som givetvis leder tankarna mot rom. Vidare är den humlad med Sorachi, Cascade, Magnum och Fuggles. Självklart tål den att lagras några år.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Pours clear and copper with a big off white head. Nose is figs, juniper, pine, black pepper, hints of caramel. The taste is sweet, mostly with only a hint of bitter that keeps the beer pleasant. Mouthfeel is crisop and clean, body is somewhat light for a barleywine and the finish is long.

Rune (11498) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2016
330ml bottle at Man in the Moon. Bubbly, filmy layer over a clear (dark) amber coloured body. Fair lacing. Aroma of dried fruits and brown malts. Solid mid-sweet flavours of raisin, figs, biscuit and caramel. Long-lived bittersweet finish supported by the warmth from the alcohol. Full bodied. Perfect after dinner drink (Stockholm 26.11.2016).

Hopmaestro (1396) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2016
2015 version: Aroma is dried fruits and general sweetness. Taste is sweet and slight sticky. More of the dried fruits and somewhat warming in the finish. An easy drinking barley wine.

dysenteri (181) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2016
2015 version, bottle from SB. Amber color, white head. Aroma with wood, toffee, caramel, figs, hint of apricot. Sweet taste, not much inte bitterness, has a bit vinous tone. Medium body, sweet aftertaste that lingers. Not bad, i like it, has a cosy feeling to it. Will probably be even better with a year or two more in the cupboard.

A nice and refreshing barley wine. Not one of legends but definitely one to enjoy :)

Dahlstrom (345) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2016 33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear amber with a medium white head. Moderate malty aroma of caramel, brown sugar, syrup, dried fruits, resin, bitter chocolate, light grassy hoppiness. Taste reflects the aroma. Medium body, with a sweet texture. Low carbonation. Medium bitterness.

CloakedDagger (2049) - - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear pale amber with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts and alcohol. Sweet, malty body, lowish carbonation. Caramellish warming alcohol, nicely balanced between malts and alcohol. A very straight BW with a malt focus - nothing too challenging. 100816

SvanteL (360) - SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad med litet skum som lägger sig snabbt. I doften finns trä, dadlar, toffé och Pommac plus en liten vinös ton. Smaken är maltig med torkade dadlar och aprikoser, tydlig fatkaraktär, lite pomeransbeska som avslutning, mycket vinös och lite tjock i konsistensen. En mycket fin barley wine i klassisk engelsk stil.

aenima (335) - Askim, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2016
Toffe, wood like aroma. The taste is light caramel with some citrus in the background. Some residual sweetness. This reminds me of a west coast barley with but not with the usual hop flavour.
