3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Second of the crooked line series that I’ve purchased, first being the labyrinth. Corked and caged 750 ml. bottle pours a deep ruby red with virtually no head. The aroma in my opinion is the best part about this beer, filled with vanilla, oak, bourbon, and dark fruits. Flavor was a little mellow compared to what I anticipated from the nose. I get dark fruit upfront following into a somewhat bland array of cardboard, oak, vanilla, and a hint of chocolate. Palate is flat from the lack of carbonation. Overall decent. It compared to how phenomenal the labyrinth was I’m a bit disappointed.
07-OCT-2017, bottle @home, from Systembolaget, with Ulkløbben.
Clear copper with a lasting tan head.
Huge hoppy Barley Wine. The full range of BW-dried-fruit-stuff. Nuts, caramel, and loads of hops. Sweet, but not all that much, bitter, full. GREAT! SirLimpsalot (4421) - SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2017
@ Eddan 17-9-16: Malt, fat, söt kola är orden som uppsummerar denna öl. Lämnade ingen större avtryck Samuel214 (1351) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2017
Flaska från SB, provning med ölsällskapet. Mörk koppar/mahogny med fint gräddigt beigevitt skum. Doft av apelsinskal, fruktkaka, kolaremmar, marmelad, torkad frukt. Stor maffig kropp med en lätt fatkaraktär. Värmande smak med kola, apelsin, bränt socker och toner av bourbon och lönnsirap. Riktigt gott! zoucrew102 (2048) - - SEP 11, 2017
Bomber, 2016 vintage. Caramel malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, bourbon and oak. Pours dark cloudy caramel colored with a tan head that has little retention and some lacing. Starts with rich caramel malt, dark fruit and dark chocolate flavors with a full body and dry mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and dry with vanilla, bourbon, oak and a good amount of warming booze that lingers long after each sip. More of a wintry beer, but pretty nice anytime. kryon (3801) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2017

Bottle from Systembolaget, sweden.
Short but lingering beige head. Clowdy dark brown color.
Distinct chocolate- caramell aroma.
Sweet caramell taste with a lingering chocolate and vanilla taste.
Full body and nice bitterness. Brewhemia (321) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2017
Delicious barley wine with amazing vinious aroma with loads of dried fruits, caramel and vanilla notes and with a touch a lightly roasted malt. The taste is fantastic as well. Lots of sweetness but a good amount of bitterness in the finish adds balance and as does the alcohol though. Though very high in alcohol it does in no way become dominant or unpleasant. Very well balanced in both aroma and taste and thus a fantastic beer in my opinion. jookos (6954) - FINLAND - JUL 14, 2017
