dslam (88) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Dark orange color with 1 finger of off white head. Significant amount of sediment that dances around in the carbonate bubbles. Nice citrus aroma with under tones of caramel malts. Good taste on the first sip. The citrus flavor with carbonation makes it feel light and refreshing while the sweetness and weight slowly settle onto the pallet.

Pours a lovely dark red with a huge, pillowy, off-white head. Tons of sticky lacing. Nose is malty with notes of raisins. Taste is somewhat sweet, but there’s a nice bitter aftertaste. Slightly dry finish. Very nice.

ShivanDragon (2134) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2015
schenkt mooi robijnrood met zeer fijne gelig/witte kraag. Aroma is die van een typische Barley Wine, echter deze komt wel stevig binnen. Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matige/redelijk bitter, zeer sterke smaken vooral van de enorme hoeveelheid graan. behoorlijk alcoholisch qua smaak, siroop, pittig karakter (iets van pepertje of zo, iig scherp op de tong), redelijk kruidige smaken, zeer sterk. medium body, glad van textuur, lage co2, en lange bittere en granige afdronk, aardig maar had hier veel meer van verwacht....
