Thanks to baggio for this bottle.

50cl bottle poured into snifters.

A = Dark reddish maple color, small light tan head which quickly settles into a foam covering on perhaps 80% of the surface.

S = Good smalls of maple syrup, fresh turned dirt, very subdued citrus fruit with also some raisins and plums.

T = Dark fruits including plums, raisins, prunes, pipe tobacco, leather, light balancing bitterness with a hint of lemon zest, quite sweet but with a long finish that gets dryer as it goes on. Well balanced.

M = Full bodied, excellent mouthcoating, luscious feeling in mouth, creamy and smooth.

D = Not one to drink quickly, but it is not hard to keep going and I could happily drink this on other occasions.

Nynäshamn is really good brewer, but to be frank I haven't tried very many beers from them. This is my third beer anyway, and it's really good!

The beer pours a deep amber color with a tiny beige head that dissapears after a little while.

Aroma is quite vinous with lots of hops and dried fruits. Slightly aged smell in a way.

Taste is quite amazing! Lots of vinous notes with a very malty background. The English-style hops remind themselves aswell. The bitterness from the hops can be felt all the way to the back of the mouth, excellent!

A really good barley wine, but a bit expensive.

Bottled as Bötet Barley Wine. Moves my rating from Nynäshamns Barley Wine to this one...

Pours a nice deep red color with a small white foamy head, leaving some lacing on the glass.

Smell is nice and malty. Lots of caramel and dried fruits. Very fruity-aleish in a english-styled way. A bit vinous. Seems interesting!

Taste is sweet, malty with notes of dried fruits, toffee/caramel and liquorice. A bit "peppery" and spicey with warming alcohol. Very nice.

Mouthfeel is very nice and filling. Liquid is very smooth, the carbonation is low and the beer seems very fullbodied. A bit oily.

This is a very nice sipper and Nynäshamn doesn't dissapoint. Good! Very malty and english in the style - perfect when you want something else than the more regular american "hop bomb"!

The colour is brown; the thick head sinks slowly to finger thick lid, leaving massive amounts of lacing.

The smell is sweet and matured with notes of raisins, nuts, alcohol, marzipan and caramel. A little rough for the style, I think.

The taste is very sweet with lots of nuts, almonds, marzipan and a quickly passing flavour of sharp alcohol and paint. There is a slight bitter flavour as well as notes of raisins and dried green apples. The body is medium - surprisingly low for a beer of this strength. The aftertaste is dry with warming notes of alcohol, raisins, some bitterness, fruity flavours and a hint of spices.

The carbonation is mild, the small bubbles are fresh. The liquid is smooth, almost a little sticky.

Barleywine is not really my favourite style, but I still experienced this one as a little rough and unbalanced. I will probably cellar the other bottles for a year or two; hopefully it will be more balanced then.
