Bottle at the Eataly store, Bologna, Italia, 25.02.11 Deep golden colour with little head, very good clarity. The nose is quite aged, its dusty furniture, sherry and a little wood. Taste is sherry, its very heavy and sweet. This is a big beer, very hefty difficult to rate as very busy around me and crammed in at the bar. A7 A5 T7 P4 Ov14 3.7

Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy brown color ale with no carbonation. Aroma of brown sugar and maple sugar with light dry fruits and light warming notes. Taste is also a very nice mix between some dry fruit with notes of caramel with some deep notes of brown sugar and maple syrup and some dry raisins. Alcohol is somewhat apparent with a full body and no carbonation. Very interesting thought somewhat expensive for the experience.

(Bottle, vintage 2005) Deep reddish amber colour. Flat, with no head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of dried fruit, molasses, burnt sugar, caramel and vinous hints of Madeira. Malty, fruity taste with dried fruit, caramel, raisins, dark wood aged rhum, chocolate, burnt sugar, molasses, cherries in brandy and a warming vinous finish with a lasting alcohol glow. Full body with an oily, syrupy texture. Very sweet with fairly low bitterness. Excellently balanced barley wine with focus more on sweet malt and alcohol rather than a high hop profile. Lovely beer.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma:Smells like a brandy, also smells like samichlaus. Lots of malty flavors, dates, raisins, plums. Hot alcohol.
Appearance:Dark burgundy in color. Lots of sediment floating around.
Taste:This is hugely sweet. Hazelnuts, raisins, dates, and maple syrup.
Palate:Hugely viscous and syrupy, very smooth.
Overall:This is a very unique beer, reminiscent of samichlaus and utopias, but smoother. It’s a quite delicious sipper.
