sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle sample @ Cantillon Quintessence 2012. Orangée foncée, pas de bulle, légère couche huileuse dorée au verre. Arôme est malté avec des notes de caramel, barrique et un vin macéré. Palais est impressionnant pour ses 12%, note maltée vers le liquoreux, qcq notes minérales, avec un rappel liquoreux de spéculoos, je note une fine note fumée venant peut être de la barrique. Cette dernière laisse une place subtile au vin sans pour cela avoir une dominance de raisin Le houblon reste en retrait et contribue a un ajout finement amer/fruité. Ici aussi, on entre dans une dimension où la bière fuse avec les liqueurs.

TimE (3191) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2014
Dark chestnut color with little to no head. Big malty nose with red wine and oak and caramel notes. Tart. The mouth shows no carbonation, big milk chocolate and caramel notes with red wine much more subdued in the mouth. The mouth is just too flat though flavors are good. Oaky, caramel and milk chocolate.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This unique Barley Wine delves into deep prunes, raisins and dark cherries while adding layers of madeira onto its voluptuous residual sugars.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam sinks into the cloudy dark purple.
-The barrel treatment is very intelligently done, perfectly harmonious with the grain bill and oxydation.
-Carbonation is very low, nearly still.
-This might not be super complex, but it remains a riveting creation perfect for those late night snifters.

Bottle pour at Open Baladin, Roma.

jackafholmes (209) - - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from baladin bar in rome. Dirty brown water with no head. Smells like honey and treacle and dark rich fruit, very sweet. Taste is same, insanely drinkable for its strength. No carbonation, medium body. Much better than it looks.
