Bottle. Cloudy dark amber color with a average frothy good lacing mostly lasting off-white head. Aroma is heavy hoppy, alcohol, sweet, caramel. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy bitter with a average duration. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. Very nice ;o)) yespr (48916) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 18, 2008
12 fl oz bottle, 2008. Pours almost clear golden amber with a huge light tan to orange head. Delicate fresh fruity hops aroma, light pineneedle note. Flavour is very hoppy and fruity. Light initial sweetness. Goes into a more dry and intense pinewood and bitter flavour before the finish. Goes rather dry and bitter, yet maintaining a rather fresh fruity hops note as well. Disregarding the style, this is nice IIPA. Ungstrup (38933) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2004
The aroma is very hoppy and grassy. The color is an unclear red and it has no head. The flavor is lovely hoppy and very dry, but also with notes of grass and oil. A simple beer, but very nice. joergen (29607) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 21, 2005
Redbrown colour with a small beige head.
Nice aroma with lots of hops and sweetness with notes of fruit and alcohol.
Sweet flavour of fruits and lots of hops.
Long bitter finish. anders37 (27588) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2005
Reddish brown in colour. White head that disappears quickly. Lots of hops in the aroma and some maltiness in the background. Taste is malty with hints of caramel, then you get the bittersweet hoppiness. That i like alot.

Bottled. Darkish red, nice reddish head. Lovely aroma of wine (grapes) and a bit of alcohol. Pleasant aroma. Flavour is cranberries, bitterish and dry. Dry palate and very bitterish aftertaste. Nice one! Travlr (26417) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2010
2010 bottle courtesy of Jason, thanks! Hazy amber, medium off white head, great lacing. Very hoppy aroma, much hoppier taste than most barleywines I have had. Decent. madmitch76 (26413) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
3rd July 2008. Rich, almost salty malt, followed by a hop profile that would do an IPA proud. Mouthwatering. cgarvieuk (26365) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2008
2008 bottle at home ... ruby colour ... piney american hops ... quite bitter pine hops with a bitter malty back bone... too bitter for me. omhper (25951) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2002
Sampled young. Reddish brown. Thick. Super fuity, super bitter, super cascade aroma. Probably need to mature for some time to become perfect, which is what I intend to do with my 2nd bottle.
