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 (1053) - 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...

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 (910) - 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

Alengrin (3875) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 Oak-aged Italian barley wine with light yellowish beige, creamy head, still quite stable in relation to the alcohol volume. Colour deep copper with orange glow, misty, somewhat darker after adding the deposit. Marvellously perfumed aroma, noticeable from a distance of a few metres, overwhelming with impressions of marmelade, port wine, candied cherries, cinnamon, pepper, wood, honey, calvados, kahlua, cranberries and liquorice. Soft taste, exotic fruits in a kind of dry sweetness, not sticky, smooth and bit granular mouthfeel, very complexely malty, turning woody and liqueurish in the end, aromatic, herbal, long hoppiness, nothing disturbing or astringent to it. To me this approaches perfection, a very memorable experience and one of the most perfect beers I ever had the pleasure to taste, but only suitable for the true barley wine afficionado, I guess.
