Aroma is a light sweet maltiness with some caramel notes and roastiness. Some fruit aromas pouring through. Taste is a rich malt character paired with a sweet fruitiness that is met with some liquor snap. However for 13.5% it is shocking smooth. Head pours thin with a light brown body. suurjuust (3504) - ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2015
Clear brown beer, almost no head. Dense malty nose, caramel, fruit hints. Malty flavor, alcohol warmth, bready notes, more caramel, coconut. Finishes dry with sake-sweetness and wood. The dryness lingers. Interesting stuff. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! jaghana (6016) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAY 23, 2015

3.: cloudier, darker. nose is more malt. Body and taste are likewise.
Too bad they are over their point.

Supremely fruity and malty with big molasses, caramel and toffee malt notes, prunes and raisins with a rich dessert tart like quality. The pour is a murky, muddy taupe with a non-existant light beige head. The aroma is warm, rich and surprisingly fruity. There is a steady carbonation despite no head. Nicely done. aged 3 years mellowed out with no hop character left. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 11, 2016
Bottle, thanks Davido. Aroma has some cough medicine, definite herbal element, interesting. Was a bit hammered at this stage unfortunately.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Pours a see-through copper colour with almost no head at all. Aroma of alcohol, barley and some candy suger maybe. Flavour is intensely sweet, with tropical fruits, barley and some wood. Really mellow mouthfeel and almost no carbonation at all. Really fruity and smooth.Shoulden’t this be catagorised as a barley wine? A really good beer indeed. Meilby (11366) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2013
