COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"It turned out to be a case of mistaken identity, of course - wrong place at the wrong time...but Claus was soon back on the street with the polite apologies of the authorities - no questions asked. Alls well that ends well, surely, but still, the reporters wanted to know...it takes its toll, doesntt it? "Indeed" sighed Claus, "my elf is going crazy, and I fear I shall soon go crazy as well" And with that he hoisted a great flagon of his favorite barleywine-style ale, silently contemplating the future and straining to remember why he got into this particular line of work in the first place. Peter Scholey, Brewer.

Mr_Pink_152 (4359) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
500ml bottle from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham. Deep gold colour with a thin head. Aroma has bug barley candy. The taste is deep and rich, sweet, and smooth. Not normally a fan of barley wine but this hits the mark.

slowrunner77 (11026) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
"Nutty aroma and flavor, with carmel and alcohol as the two main players. Slightly bitter, but hops are definitely in the background here. Its thin yet shows the abv, not the best combo, though it wasnt a total waste. Just subpar for a barleywine."

SlackerMads (3198) - DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle. Clear orange with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Candy, golden raisins, figs, caramel, over ripe banana. Medium/full body, oily/sticky texture, medium/heavy sweet and bitter, medium alcohol presence, oily/syrupy texture, soft carbonation. I guess its a decent and fair priced barley wine.

ComradeK (1181) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a fairly clear rich amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves a little lacing. The aroma, weirdly, is almost hefeweizen-like, dominated by yeasty banana notes, although some toffee and fruitcake hints sneak through. Spicy hops up front mix with sweetly spicy yeast. Plum pudding, butterscotch and warm alcohol appear in the mid-palate, with more banana yeast leading into a boozy fruitcake finish. It leaves a lingering hot alcohol feel. Im not a big fan of this one. It has some good flavours in there, but it is far too yeast-dominated for a barleywine, and hides its 10.5% alcohol very poorly.

TheJestersBeer (2422) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a deep amber, with a white head. Complex, malty, caramelly aroma, toffee, dried fruit, walnuts, almonds, lightly yeasty, hints of chocolate. Semi-sweet, full bodied, mid bitterness, creamy CO2. Malty, caramelly taste, hops, raisins, dried apricot, madeira, yeast. Quite rich, a real sipper. (2014-01-24)

Flaske med dansk pantemerke, p hytta til Sigmund april-14: paneldeltajerne viser tegn til tretthet og stavefeilene blir hyppigere. Litt for skarp i kanten.
