zaf (239) - - DEC 15, 2013
bottiglia 330 liberata dall’oppressione del tappo,la birra comincia subito a liberare gli aromi alcolici vinosi..nel bicchiere non riesce a fare nemmeno un pò di schiuma (pochissimissima in realtà) e si presenta marrone terroso e torbida..aromi vinosi,frutta sotto spirito,caramello,uvetta,canditi..corpo medio e gusto dominato da sentori vinosi più che da birra (probabilmente dovuti all’uso del mosto per la rifermentazione in bottiglia)..finale amaricante ma comunque molto maltata e,come già detto,sapori vinosi dominano tutta la degustazione..buona ma ci sono barley wine molto molto migliori!

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Pours reddish brown with a very small head that's off white. Nose is grapes, honey, rye malts, wood and grass. Taste is so complex. Well balanced waves of bitter, sweet and slight tart dance in perfect combination. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a little bite. Heavy body and a huge finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012-06-17, bottle 165/500 from the brewery, 7-5-8-4-15=39
Although the bottle has been standing undisturbed for long time, it pours a cloudy amber color; the medium sized head is persistent. Delicate aroma of wine and wood, light vanilla, light acidity. Good body strength; malt flavor with moderate sweetness, and also a late astringency; the cask provides both a nice vanilla flavor and a delicate vinous character; subdued bitterness, allowing in the final to the fruitiness to appear.
Very good.

2012-04-11, bottle 029/500 at the brewery, 7-5-8-4-16=40
Hazy amber color, medium sized head. Very nice aroma, with wood, vanilla, light fruit, apricot jam, alcohol and puke. Quite sweet and fruity flavor, malty, with some vanilla and wine. The bitterness is low.
Not fully cohesive, but very interesting.
