COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra ispirata ai tradizionali Barley Wine inglesi, prodotti con puro malto Pale del tipo Maris Otter ed il caratteristico Crystal, nonché il luppolo Golding che le conferisce note molto calde. Viene prodotta con l’utilizzo del pregiato cacao Talamanca ( APPTA - comunità del cibo di Terra Madre, CostaRica). Birra forte che riscalda e rilassa i sensi caratterizzata da un color ebano illuminato da riflessi rubino ed una schiuma compatta dai toni nocciola. Naso ricco, complesso, con note fruttate di caramello, carruba, nocciole e pasta i cacao. In bocca è morbida, elegante, calda, con sensazioni di cioccolato amaro e continue note di gusto sorprendenti Riesce comunque ad essere equilibrata. Alc. 12,5% Vol

Birra piacevole nonostante le classiche "imperfezioni" tipiche dello stile. Al naso oltre queste note, non eccessivamente fastidiose, della fermentazione spontanea la Tosta rivela forti note di Cacao e Nocciola. Alla vista ha un bellissimo colore che passa dall’ebano chiaro al rosso rubino in alcuni punti, sfortunatamente il bel colore non è esaltato da un buon cappello di schiuma che è pressochè assente ed assolutamente poco persistente, seppur non me l’aspettassi invasiva nè particolarmente accentuata almeno poca ci sarebbe stata bene. Il gusto rivela le note di cacao amaro di cui sopra e di tostato con un’acidità piacevole ed una discreta fluidità sul palato. Nel complesso una piacevole bevuta dalla quale sinceramente mi aspettavo qualcosina in più.

SFBW Sour Sinday 2014 @ Triple Rock. The aroma on this one led me to believe that the bottle had been aged poorly or someting but I couldn’t get a look at the bottle. There was lots of bown sugar and honey aromas with a little spice in the back. No noticable carbination and I didn’t get the citrus, chocolate or woody notes that other are mentioning. Seemed pretty muted and boring from the bottle I tasted. I look forward to trying this again in the future and changing my rating.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle shared at beers of the world II. Aroma of orange peel and a citrussy iced tea. Pours hazy brown orange with minimal lacing. Taste is very pleasant with a chocolate covered orange note to it. The malts give it a bitter iced tea finish. I really liked this one. The alcohol is not noticeable at all.

THE Others tasting. Very hazy amber beer with a tidy pale cream head. Light dry palate with mild carbonation. Dry malt and a trace of chocolate powder. Mild lactose and dried fruits. Dry finish. Drinks well below the 12.5% but it’s slightly left field and was hoping for better from this brewer.

jackl (4994) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle @ THE Others Tasting. Cheers to Ken (I think) for bringing this along! The pour’s a hazy reddish amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma’s musty red grape, berries, woodland shrub, some dried herb and grass. The taste is mineral, fruit preserve, more bitter unwashed herbs. Grass, some wood. Pretty light body considering the ABV. Overly active carbonation. Overall, not bad. Not a standout.

dinkle50 (1025) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Sewer water brown with hardly any head. Aroma of rubbing alcohol and hints of toffee. Medium mouth. Very sweet. The cocoa is pretty dominant throughout. Hints of molasses. Some caramel and dark fruits too. Alcohol is pretty hidden despite the aroma.

Scopey (7455) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle at THE others tasting, thanks to Ken. It pours cloudy dark amber/brown with a small off-white head. The nose is over-ripe fruit, oak, caramel and brown bread. The taste is toffee, wood, orange peel, quite sweet, sugar water and faint metal with a sweetish finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking, but not much too it really. Certainly hides the alcohol well.

Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle at The Others Tasting, London - thanks to Ken for never running out of strong beers to share. Poure cloudy amber with a fine, off-white foam head. Rich, sweet brown bread aroma with notes of ripe, leathery fruits. Big sweet flavor with sugary, bready malts, ripe apples, toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish with yet more rich bread, toffee, ripe berries. Good and pretty drinkable.

n00bface (137) - Minneapolis, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle from South Lyndale Liquors (Minneapolis, Minnesota, 29/11/12)
Aroma: Malt, coffee, and chocolate.
Appearance: A hazy brown color with a small off-white head.
Taste: Medium sweetness.
Palate: Medium bodied, sticky texture, a soft carbonation, and a really dry finish.
A decent beer, but really just an average barley wine.
