Split a 500 ml bottle Nov.30th

A: looked pretty good Nice Brownish Deep Amber colour, Tan'Offwhite head

S: Subtle, faint notes of caramel and chocolate trying to make their presence known

T: Oxidized full on Cardboard bomb. Lingered over powered even the booze.

M: Slightly thinner than i hoped and the faint carbonation didnt help.

O: Not what i was expecting i checked the bottle best before stamp it had two numbers on it 2 years apart should of been in the clear. might need another look if a new shipment comes in

FYI everyone I am reviewing this from Norway and there has been a mistake on the label. This is actually an imperial IPA. I think it is an excellent beer. I don't really care about how many fingers and color etc...I care about the taste. I must say for an IPA the 2 Captains (also a Nøgne) is closer to the mark for an IPA, however this beer is so awesome I can't help but rate it high. The nose is almost non existent, even in a large wine glass, but the mouth feel is awesome, the bittering and flavoring hops are fantastic! I can't help but wonder what would happen if a huge pile of the right hops where added to this recipe in the last few minutes of the boil. It reminds me of the Dog fish head IPA line, but better. Bravo again. Too bad Nøgne has been sold to a big player. or...maybe not too bad.

Brown and hazy with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet malts with brown sugar. Flavor is sweet rich malt that's nicely supported by a moderate bitterness. The malts definitely lead but the hops show its American influence. A creamy, silky feel with a nice low carbonation. I'm not a big barleywine fan but I enjoyed this one.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - swampy brown colour, half finger of head retained at thin cover, left nice consistent lacing
S - citrus with touches of pine, earth, and nuts
T - starts with a citrus hop bite with a strong molasses malt compliment, undertones of earth and almonds with just hint of alcohol sweetness
M - medium body that is fairly sticky at first, drys out through the finish and warms the innards, very drinkable for a big brew
O - rich in flavours while striking a surprisingly nice balance between hop and malt flavours, and a nicely drinkable 10%, this one is a winner
