COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra in stile Barley Wine adatta all’invecchiamento.
Per questa ricetta viene utilizzato un luppolo giapponese (Sorachi Ace) e un solo malto (Pale). La bollitura prolungata conferisce aromi caramellati e permette di ottenere un mosto molto concentrato.

Botella de 330ml. Copa Globo. Saboreada en agt´12. Color dorado anaranjado. Espuma beige y corona muy fina, casi inexistente. Perfil aromático complejo: Maltas Caramelo, especias, caramelos, levadura, alcohol dulce y notas de anís, trazos de canela y fruta madura. Aguada y azucarada al primer sorbo. Sabores de malta caramelo, caramelos, toques de naranja, cálido alcohol y paladar punzante. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación suave. Bastante astringente en el intermedio y final amargo. Decepcionante y desequilibrada. Algo inesperado siendo de ELAV 330ml bottle. Snifter glass. Enjoyed on agt´12. Orangish golden color. Beige frot.h & brief, very thin, crown. Complex aroma profile: Caramel Malts, candies, spices, yeast , sugary alcohol & anise notes, hints of cinnamon & ripe fruits. Watery & sugary at first sip. Flavors of caramel, candies, orange touch, warming alcohol & spicy on to the palate. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Quite astringent in the middle. Bitter finish. Dissapointing, unbalanced & unexpected from ELAV.

Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2012
Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a thin yellowish head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, caramel, and lemons. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel soup, malt, alcohol, and citrusy hops, leading to a dry, bitter, and alcoholic finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. That lovely coconut smell of Sorachi Ace dominate the nose. Rich body, low carbonation, lots of caramel and exotic fruits - very complex. Rich alcoholic finish. Lovely - my first Sorachi Ace Barley Wine. 200612

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - APR 14, 2012
14/04/2012 Domus Birrae (330ml bottle). Arancia, intensa, riflessi fulvi, schiuma quasi assente. Al naso interessantissime note di frutta tropicale e pesca, che stemperano un po’ il caramello. Audace l’utilizzo del Sorachi Ace, insolito ma di grande effetto. In bocca è ben equilibrato, ma mostra ancora qualche segno di gioventù, dolce, molto caramello, un po’ stucchevole a lungo andare, finale leggermente amaro. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Davvero niente male.
