Silver 2006. Pop from the cork, yet pours totally still. Zero head/lace; looks like a mead though.
Astringent aroma, a tad barrely, notes of Utopias heat. Super silky sweetness on the palate, liquid English barleywine caramelyness. Zero burn. Totally flat, and damn tasty.

Fantastic. Big strong alcohol but perfectly balanced with the fruity Christmas cake thing thats going on. Sweet but not overly so, its just a fantastic drink. A big thank you to cgarvieuk

Bottle at Delirium. Totally flat. Aroma is booze, fruity, raisins. Taste is crazy, loads of fruit, sweet, marzipan, very easy to drink. Feels very voluminous in the mouth. Strange but in a difficult way to explain.

Qui il confine tra birra e vino (passito) è veramente labile, zero schiuma, marroncina, aroma fantastico di frutti maturi esotici, cosi come il sapore, datteri uvetta e molto altro ancora, incredibilmente complessa!
