Buon barley wine riscaldante, dove non si sente molto l’alcoolicità...ben equilibrato e non troppo dolce

Kosmokrator (456) - ITALY - JAN 31, 2014
Alla spina. Limpido color mogano-rossiccio con un sottile velo di pannosa schiuma beige. Al naso e al palato offre note di liquirizia, cacao amaro e frutta essicata di media intensità. Corpo medio, effervescenza piacevole, struttura leggermente liquorosa, finale un po’ appiccicoso. Piacevole ma banalotta.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Brown with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and caramel. The flavor is similar with a lot of malt notes, as well as some alcohol and spices. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle in Rome, purchased from Domus Birrae. Hazy deep brown beer. Short lived cream coloured head. Softish palate, semi dry. Lacto cream, subtle dark chocolate. Dry finish. An okay sweet malty beer but as with too many other Italian beers I’ve had recently - a real lack of hops.

Non essendo un amante dei Barley wine partivo con i miei soliti pregiudizi. Eppure questa Xtrem mi ha fatto ricredere. Rossa opaca con davvero poca schiuma entra in bocca sprigionando i classici sentori dolci di malto e caramello. Quando scende in gola vieni riscaldato dai 9 gradi di alcool ma è solo quando riapri la bocca per prendere aria che un bel fresco di luppolo erbaceo ti avvolge e ti invita al secondo sorso. Davvero buona, anche per i non amanti del genere.
