Bottle sample at a tasting at Maxs place. Thanks Max & Stas. 11%. Deep amber-brown. Aroma of malt, caramel, wood, vanilla, dark fruits, oxidation, sherry, alcohol. Sweet flavor with caramel, fruitiness, wood, oxidation, alcohol. Medium-bodied. Kinda OK, but too alcoholic.

Bevuta a Roma alla spina. Il colore rosso. Al naso sento profumi i di frutta matura. La schiuma un p poca, ma molto persistente. Al palato ti lascia un piacevole amaro dopo un inizio dolcino. Sentori di cioccolato liquoroso. Niente di nuovo, gia vista..

The Etruscan (607) - Tuscany, ITALY - AUG 18, 2015
Light brown full lasting head. Brown colour. Aroma is malty, fruity (dates and prunes) with wood and cane sugar notes. Flavor is malty too with dark fruits and wood tones, ending in a moderately fruity finish. Full bodied

Wrong beer, with no head, strange aspect and no hint of a barleywine character. Extremely watery (?) and unstructured. I even wondered if it was spoiled. If you see it, run away!!!

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2015 Przy nalewanie piana właściwie się nie wytwarza, pojawiają się tylko na chwilę grube bąble, ktre praktycznie od razu znikają. Piwo ma piękną krwisto-miedzianą barwę, jest klarowne. Aromat jest wyraźny, lekko kwaśny, kojarzący się z czerwonym winem. Mamy trochę czerwonych owocw, śliwek, a w tle lekkie drewniane czy skrzane nuty. W smaku piwo jest bardzo nisko wysycone, gęste, wręcz oleiste i słodkie. W smaku ponownie mamy kojarzące się z winem owoce i lekki karmel. Na finiszu pojawia się likierowy alkohol, a każdy łyk pozostawia lekko ściągający, cierpki posmak. Wyraźnie w tym piwie czuć wpływa wina, jest to tak jakby połączenie czerwonego wina i mocno słodowego piwa.

Lowenbrau (3076) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 15, 2015
330ml bottle. 15-01-2015.
Shared with Andrs Lpulo.
In short: average barley wine.
Pours dark copper with little off white head. Malty, caramel, raisins nose. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste follows the nose, quite malty, sweet, liquor, strong warm alcohol finish. Enjoyable.

ciocanelu (1004) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 5, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Muddy brown color, not a pretty beer. Some weird stale aroma at first, not very appealing. After it sits a bit it gets better though. Taste is quite bitter for a barleywine and doesnt really integrate well with the malt sweetness. You can definitely taste the lack of skill in this beer.

Grzesiek79 (3861) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 28, 2014
Dobre i mile na zimowe wieczory. Rozgrzewajacy i alkoholowy finisz. W smaku toffi, sliwka w rumie kasztanowe posmaki i nieco nawet ziemniaczane. Przyjemne tresciwe i troche slodkawe piwo. Alkoholowa nuta towarzyszy przez caly czas degustacji.
