2009 vintage sampled at Mikkeller bar in May 2012. Review fro notes.
A: Pours a clean, dark copper with no head at all. This looks like a heavy barleywine.
S: Nose is mostly the one of an English Barleywine with chocolate, caramel, dried fruits. Surprisingly, I couldn't detect any alcohol at all. Deep and very nice smell.
T: The taste mainly follows the nose but is deeper, with some bready malts, also fruity, strong but with a low alcohol presence despite a small kick on the aftertaste.
M: The mouthfeel is similar to a liquor, a bit flat, but smooth and still very drinkable given the ABV.
O: I was really impressed with this one. It's definitely a sipper but I would never have guessed the alcohol content. So deep, so rich. Awesome!
