COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barley wine equilibrio e raffinato, maturato in acciaio e successivamente invecchiato in bottiglia. Di color ramato intenso con riflessi rossi, al naso é ricco e complesso, spirigiona profumi di confettura e cigliege sotto spirito. In bocca é caldo, di gran corpo e con gasatura lieve.
Dedicato a chi ancora si emoziona per una scoperta, chi si innamora dinanzi al disvelarsi delle cose.

Bottled, thanks rlgk! Hazy amber, small head. Peppery caramel aroma. Sweet, really full bodied. Fudge, rosemary and salt. Soothing caramel wanes the peppery alcohol heat that comes together with honey. Mid bitter finish.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle from Vinspecialisten, Randers; bb 2019, batch L 349 09, 3 years old
Beautiful dark amber color, with red reflex; undercarbonated, with a collar of creamy foam. Deep aroma of malt and fudge, with light raspberry syrup, and vanilla. Full bodied, with round mouthfeel and expected low carbonation; it has a sticky malt flavor, sweet, with an evident and unexpected raspberry syrup presence; correct bitterness, although a bit woody in the end.
Quite strange beer. The aroma is nice and complex, the flavor is a bit cloying.
