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.

Wolfbass (1089) - Firenze, - DEC 29, 2012
Di colore ramato con assenza completa di schiuma. Il naso è ricco: caramello, frutta scura matura e il sentore liquoroso che poi prende il sopravvento. In bocca è molto equilibrata, ovviamente corposa, calda, avvolgente; ma la cosa bella è che a differanza di alcune birra dello stile, che diventano mappazza, la nostra scende meravigliosamente e non stanca anzi...

olio (9188) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2016
33 cl bottle. BBE 01.09.2024.
Pours clear mahogany color with a very large frothy head. Light toffee on the nose, pale malts, some herbal hoppy notes, very faint sweet fruits and notes of wood. Sweet caramel and toffee on the flavor, spices, toasted malts, mild ripe fruits, apricot and very subtle cardboard-y tones, probably due to a very strong carbonation. Sticky sweet palate, alcohol comes through a bit, lingering sweet toffee finish. Feels a bit light due to the carbonation, otherwise decent sweet Barley Wine.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la maison. Couleur ambrée avec reflets dorés, belle mousse blanche, effervescence moyenne. Nez sur le candy, la banane et le malt. En bouche attaque complexe sur les saveurs citées, plus haut mais aussi attaque sur le grain, et l’alcool. Fin de bouche sucrée et alcoolisée.

fiammanghilla (953) - Genova, ITALY - DEC 7, 2014
Bottiglia (2012) comprata da spirito di vino e bevuta a casa. Ambrata con schiuma evanescete e parecchio sedimento. Secca, mandorla amara. Molto alcol. Non il massimo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold
