Pours translucent burnt sienna. Yeah, whipping out my box of crayolla crayons on this one, minimal head. Toffee and nutty nose. Taste is sweet malt, more caramel, toffee. Big full chewy body. Mild booze burn on finish. This is an old school barley wine. Like pre TI-82 calculator old school.
On tap at bier thirty. Pours out amber orange topped with a small head. Nose is toffee some burnt caramel malt sweetness and little wet paper. Taste is more of the caramel malts a sweet bitter note and some spice. olsvammel (7220) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle from Systembolaget. Malty smell with caramel and toasted sugar. Similar taste. A bit boozy. Slight rough. murran (639) - - JAN 5, 2017
Pours a dark amber body with a medium head. Very nice typical barley wine aroma of malts. Complex malty taste with a very nice balance.

Bärnstensfärgad, grumlig. I doften finns torkad frukt och apelsinskal plus lite kryddor. Smaken har en söt fruktighet och en liten grapebeska plus viss alkoholhetta. När den kommer upp i temperatur blir det mer av fruktjuice.

Bottle in a tulip. Pours brownish amber with an off-white head. Aroma of sweetness and toffee from the malts, floral and bitter hops, and dough and light booze. Flavor the same. Average texture. Decent but boring. The_Osprey (7890) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2016
July 2016 - Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’North Coast Class of ’88’. Many thanks to Kenny. Pours dark amber orange, hazy with a foamy tan head. Aroma is bready, light tangerine, musty. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is piney, resinous, boozy, toffee. Boozy and sweet. A bit unrefined, but quite tasty. (3.3)
