The foam is tenuous but persistent. It smells very beautiful malt and lots of fruits. The taste is unbelievably rich plums, raisins, honey and malt. The immediate first very sweet, has a colossal great vinuosity and then goes into a distinctive taste of alcohol as interfering in a perfect balance with the hoppy aftertaste filled with fruit.

courtesy of Papsoe - cloudy dark amber-orange colour with a giant creamy and stable beige foam; aroma of bread, raisins and almonds; voluptuous mouthfeel, high sweetness and a robust malt body; a late and very pronounced bitterness, lot of residual sugars, some warming alcohol along with more notes of almonds and caramel - a great brew Monkeypower (172) - Odense C, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2008
Cloudy dark golden with tanned head. Winous aroma with plenty of ripe fruits and a port flavor of fruit and christmas. nybol (2280) - DENMARK - JUL 13, 2017
er meget maltet og kraftig i det. den er knap så tung som mange barley wine. Måske fordi den havde ligget så længe. olsvammel (7256) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget labeled Vintage Barley 2008. It poured a hazy ruby liquid. Malty sweet and wineous with a boozey finish. Very tasty..

Pours a dark red body.
Fizzy head thats mostly white but is little red, it is short lasting.
The body has a very beutiful color and a perfekt opacity.
Aroma is of apelsineshell and flowery hops. Small notes of cassis directly after a fast pour. Gets more alcoholic at the end.
Flavor is spicy, dried fruits.
Small notes of flowery hops, clovelike.
Very sweet and plumlike aftertaste, more than is usual in barley wines.
It is very hard to find any alcoholic tast in it.
Palate is thick and pretty harch.
This beer has a very nice balance betwen the plumlike sweetness and the hops, dont understand why it has got that low rating. tourtrappist (35) - SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2012
