Maakun (3088) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2016
Bottle 2015 shared at home. Murky brown with lots of yeast clumps and small beige head. Milk chocolate, dark red wine, sherry, lots of sweet malts, chestnut, walnuts. Over medium sweet and bitter, very light sour, with a long lasting bitter finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Bit disappointing actually, though certainly not bad.

Piwo trochę leżakowało. Bardzo fajna butelka, gdyby dodać korek zamiast kapsla wręcz wyglądałaby jak od wina - ogólnie bardzo udana i pasująca do stylu piwa oprawa. Zapach delikatny i subtelny - trochę słodów, winnych drożdży, domowego wina z moreli, brzoskwini, gruszki, szlachetnego alkoholu, słodkawy/miodowy, bardzo przyjemny. Kolor rubinowo-brązowy wręcz koniakowy. Piana dość obfita koloru beżowego z czasem zanika całkowicie, nie pozostawiając obrączki. Smak winno-słodowy, dość fajnie wyczuwalna gruszka z morelą, goryczka tylko lekka, która nie zalega, dość słodkie i pełen aromatów a alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty tylko lekko rozgrzewa podczas przełykania. Pomimo, że ni przepadam za takim stylem, ale dla mnie ów piwo świetnie, pomimo swojej mocy bardzo pijalne - polecam spróbować.

Ambro206 (357) - ITALY - MAY 9, 2016
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2016: Un barley maestoso, da meditazione. Una birra complessa e ricca di sfumature che piano piano evolvono. Al naso appaiono nette le note di ciliegia, uva e porto. In bocca si sviluppano aromi di cioccolato al latte, zucchero candito e, nel finale, liquerizia. Il colore è mogano legggero con schiuma color crema. Nella bevuta, accompagnata dolcemente dalla scarsa carbonatazione, la dolcezza dei malti prevale pur accompagnata da una punta di amaro iniziale. Il finale è lungo e maestoso. Il corpo è pieno, sciroppso, l’alcool si fa sentire-

Bottle from Whole Foods - Tribeca, New York City. Bottle has "2015" stamped on the label. My pour from bottle to snifter gave me an "off white" colored head of about a half inch. It quickly dissipated. The smell is a somewhat faint smell of hard candy. The taste immediately reminded me of the J.W. Lee barleywines -- moderately thick, sweet...kind of a sipping on sherry experience. Those were some of my early favorites that I’ve since largely moved away from. Ugh...unfortunately, this hasn’t been my style of English barleywine for a few years now. Difficult to judge without being impartial to my changed palate. It’s probably easiest to say, if you like the J.W. Lee barleywines or sipping on sherry, you will like this beer. If you’re taste is more in the vein of Firestone Walker Sucaba, Bell’s Saturn barleywine...barleywines that offer a more complex flavor profile, then you may not enjoy this. This was a one dimensional experience for me. Sorry I dropped US$16 on this bottle but that’s the risk we all take when exploring and looking for the next ultimate taste experience.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2016 Bruin bier met rode gloed. Zoet aroma en smaak. Pruimen, rode druif, beetje eik, kersen, rozijntjes, port, wijn. Volle ronde smaak met warme zoete afdronk. Ondanks de 13 % abv proef je de alcohol nooit. Perfect uitgebalanceerd. Een voortreffelijke dochter !!

Night_Cap (57) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle 500ml (2014). Served at cellar temperature. Pours a hazy burnt amber. Head is off white, average sized and lasts very well in the glass. Aroma is very rich and complex with notes of strawberry jam, nectarines stewed in cognac, burnt caramel, maple syrup, oak and tree sap/resin. Flavour is very smooth with virtually no bitterness at all; burnt toffee, raisins, dark cherries, overripe stonefruit, rum, resin and some light toasted woody notes. Full bodied with medium carbonation, thick texture and a long warming finish.
