clear brass, slight off white head, some lace. nose is very mild sweet malt, perhaps some breadiness. the nose is pretty mild. flavor is malty, leathery and musty, with some sweet notes. medium bodied, sweet finish. alcohol is well hidden (not necessarily a plus in my book), but not as flavorful as many barley wines i’ve had in the past. still, well worth the try. sampled on tap at three floyds brewpub. mxtur (266) - Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Kinda bitter late, but before that you get a nice peach and orangish haze color. It was worth having. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Served in a tall goblet.
Pours a ligh copper color with a half-finger of white head that faded and leaves a bit of spotty lacing as well as a thin collar. The nose is really quite plain wit just a bit of light malty sweetness.and some very faint tropical hops.
The taste is a bit of a disappointment. There are some tropical hops and some lightly-sweet malt, though it is a bit medicinal and boozy toward the back. Finish is oddly alcoholic and has a bit of a medicinal component. Not my favorite brew from them, sad to say. Interesting, but not all that good in the end.
Serving type: on-tap

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Hazy amber, almost no head. Caramelly nose with notes of honey. Sweet and full bodied, packed with sticky caramel., syrupy mouthfeel. More honey in a warming finish where there’s also notes of lingonberries. Feels too rough and immature.
