EvNa (541) - Ede, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2017
Bottle. Color: Dark ruby brown, very thin light brown head. Taste: Syrupy, apple syrup, notes of caramel, marmelade, plums, malt and grain. Lightly hints of wood and whisky. Pretty sweet and dry, in a pleasant way. Little boozy, but the high alcohol percentage is well hidden. Full body, rich taste, below average carbonation. Very complex. Great beer to enjoy slow sipping at a relaxing moment.

On tap at borefts, loved it immensely; re-rated now based on a bottled version. Pours very dark brown, but not black. Almost no head. Aroma is heavy, complex and spicy. Very malty, molasses sweetness, toffee, some red berries, plums. The rye spiciness is beautifully complemented by even more spiciness from the barrel-aging in rye whisky barrels. Very complex, rich and balanced. Big body, very spicy and thick on the palate. Flavour is equally complex. Very rich, sweet and very spicy. Honey sweetness, rich maltiness, molasses, figs. Rye grain is very intense, and the rye whisky just increases it. Perfect beer; rye wine with rye whisky barrel-aging - what a great idea! For me the perfect version of a barleywine. It's incredibly balanced despite its richness. Wow!
