4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color ramato scuro, con assenza completa di schiuma. Al naso sembra davvero ad avere a che fare con un vino, legnoso, liquoroso e molto fruttato. L’olfatto ricco e complesso è davvero memorabile. In bocca la nostra è molto calorosa, secca e pungente.

At Craft Bier Fest Wien. Quite intense with pronounced basic woodiness. Lots of tannins and poorly drinkable. Somewhat astringent. Rough alcohol. I do not like it very much.

Purple color with no head. Aroma is amarone, raisins, tartness. Taste is some malts, nuttiness, amarone again, raisins. Like a very good dry sherry. Awesome, a real slow sipper. A masterpiece.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Todd’s share. Pours a muddy brown with very small head in a small snifter. Powerful fruited aroma of overipe dark fruits like prunes, plums, nectarines, raisins, and apricots. The taste was super sweet overipe fruits mention in the aroma and dark candy sugars. Cloying. Some sweet roll aspects with spices as well. Medium to full body and very low carb. It smelled good but since the finish was so sweet it was a little rough.

A sugary alcohol smell with a hint of dried raisins. Its brown color with its still taste makes it one of a kind. The taste also have some raisins and molasse taste with alcohol. Drink it with care and make it last. Cheers!

Barley wine from the rotter this one is from dasilky. Pours poop pond brown with no head offered. Sweet grapey port wine. Grape drank. Dimetap. Potent sweet plummy figs. Touch of metallic acidic character. Perhaps a bit too sweet and medicinal.

Murky brown with floating bits and no head. Seems very sweet, smells like fruit compote and spices (allspice mostly). Taste sweet and fruity, almost no carbonation, strong alcoholic feeling going down the throat. I usually love Ducato, but this left me unimpressed. It IS five years old, so maybe that’s part of it, would love to try a fresher, or possibly just later, sample.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Hazy, reddish chestnut coloured pouring produces some fugacious, macropored bubbles. Intense, sweetish malty aroma, lots of almond, marzipan, sherry, Amaretto, Moscatel, Marsala, some little by little pervasive Marmite-like spiciness. Taste is mildly spicy, a touch of soup cube and lovage, hints of Marmite, some sherry, Marsala; slightly dry, papery, cardboard finish, warming alcohol paralleled. Viscous texture, flat, insipid palate. Slow sipper necessitating a process that must be described rather as arduous abolition than reiterated regalement.
