My first Barley wine. Suprised to taste alcohol was hoping that it will dissapier into massive body. No foams, a small lacing. Very clear and nice rubin color. Taste not so interesting a bit to plane for me, but need to re-rate this or compare to other barley wine.

Pours reddish mahogany, not much foam at all. Aroma hits you with burnt sugar, caramel, nice sweet decadent feel to it. Bitterness is there and alcohol too, some smoke is coming out from the finish. Something herbal in there too. Decent and pleasurable.

Bottle shared. Thanks Juan! Pours a slightly hazy deep amber with a small tan head. Big caramel and toasted toffee nose with some brown sugar and light grass hops. Well-balanced on the palate with lots of caramel and brown sugar standing out. Sweet with a full body. Finish has some nice bitter hops.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330 ml from Amstein - St-Légier (CH). Oily brown beer with a tan head, traces on the glass. Richly mlted flavors, toffy-molasses, dry fruits, apricot, plum pudding, liquor. The taste is similar, round, caramelized and full taste, syrupy and liquor-like. That promises bells and whistle, but it’s cut in its round-up (weighty) by a resinous and citrusy hop. Remains to tame.
