On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear amber with a light tan head that dissipated to the edges and left a slight lace. Aroma had a decent amount of sweet grain with caramel and a hint of backing toffee. Flavor began with sweet grain and caramel with a bit of grassy hop coming out in the finish. shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Tap at 3F brewpub. Sweet peach/apple, brown sugar/toffee aroma with light alcohol. Amber color with small head. Sweet light peach/apple malt, brown sugar flavor with moderately bitter citrus hops finish. Full bodied.

LCBS 2010. Orangish pour. All grapefruit peel here with some brown sugar/caramel malt peeking out. Flavor is hoppy up front, sweet malt middle and back to the citrus hops on the finish. Nice stuff.

Hazy dark amber colour. Sweet fruity caramel alco aroma. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet with caramel and toasty malt indeed along with fruit and alcohol.

Draft at the brewpub, split with a buddy. Pours a cloudy amber color with a tiny white head. Aroma is very fruit-forward, with notes of apples, raisins, cherries, sweet caramel malts, and plenty of brandy-like booze; there was something lactic throwing me off in the nose, though. It drops out of the flavor, fortunately, and booze leads, with caramel malts, wood, earthy hops, and sugar. Lingering bitterness and alcohol. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a boozy mouthfeel. Big and warming. Plovmand (8266) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2011
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. It pours hazy amber with a small off white head. The aroma is caramel, fruit, tea, bread and earthy hops. The flavour is berries, sweet caramel, tea, hops and has a light acidic touch. lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2011
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Rated @ 27.5.2011.larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2011
Pours a dark, hazy orange colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of sweet caramel and nuts. Flavour of floral hops, bready malts, caramel and toasted nuts. Medium bodied with a thick mouthfeel. English malts/hops are not my favourite.
Head is just a thin white ring. Clear amber body. Clean citric resiny aroma with toffee, caramel and mint notes. Dry-sweet intense minty resiny oranges taste with peas and butter notes. Mid-bodied. Mild yet sharpish mouthfeel. Dry-bitter minty floral toffee aftertaste with spicy buttery resin notes. A spicy minty flavour lingers. Lovely, subdued barleywine with good harmony and balance.
