Nice rubbish colour. Taste of raisins, honey, caramel and dried fruits. Well balanced. Not owerly sweet. rarbring (2294) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2012
Aroma: The smell is, as should be, vinous - Port, Madeira. Sweet dried fruits, figs, dates. Fermentation and yeast.vjohans (756) - SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2014
Appearance: The beer is brown, red hints, with a firm beige head leaving lots of lacing.
Taste: Abundantly sweet, dried apricots, spices, cloves. A good bitter balance, bitter almond.
Palate: Rather good carbonation, small fresh bubbles, yet a firm feeling.
Overall: I have difficulties rating barley wines, barely beers as they are. But to me this was rather accessible.
Note: Bottle 250 ml. (Vintage 2010) Reviewed 2011-07-16.

Testade 2014 mot 2009. 2014 vacker rödbrun färg, 2009 lite mörkare i tonen. 2014 har en fräsch fruktig doft, mer och mer citrus, främst pomerans ju varmare den blir. 2009 har mycket torkad frukt i doften, främst dadlar och fikon. 2014 har en fräsch fruktighet i smaken som bara blir tydligare ju mer man jämför med 2009 som är söt och rund med massor av torkad frukt. Spännande att de nu kan uppfattas som helt olika öl, var och en suverän på sitt sätt. 2014 känns inte alls blek och trist jämfört med den vällagrade 2009:an, utan dess unga särdrag, den friska fruktigheten, är mycket läcker i sig. Men är man mer på det söta humöret så är 2009:an den man ska ta. LoFi (1718) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2011 Draught, vintage 2008. Orange to reddish brown with a creamy off-white head. Aroma: port, raisins. Taste: honey, dried fruit, licorice, very malty, quite a high bitterness, and some alcohol. Full and creamy mouthfeel. A nice barley wine, and my favourite from Nynäshamn.

Pours a nice deep red color with a small white foamy head, leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma is nice and malty. Lots of caramel and dried fruits. Very fruity-aleish in a english-styled way. A bit vinous. Seems interesting! Flavour is sweet, malty with notes of dried fruits, toffee/caramel and liquorice. A bit "peppery" and spicey with warming alcohol. Very nice. Mouthfeel is very nice and filling. Liquid is very smooth, the carbonation is low and the beer seems very fullbodied. A bit oily. This is a very nice sipper and Nynäshamn doesn’t dissapoint. Good! Very malty and english in the style - perfect when you want something else than the more regular american "hop bomb"!
