sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2013
(Bottled) Hazy, dark reddish brown with a small, but partly lasting head. Very strong vanilla and bourbon barrel aroma with notes of alcohol. Flavor is sweet and dark-fruity, slightly tart with strong vanilla-bourbon notes and some oaky tannins in the finish. Actually a lot better with yeast, as the vanilla gets less pronounced, and the thick fig-raisiny, dark fruitiness kicks in. Very thick and full body with lowish CO2 and sticky-syrupy maltiness. Very enjoyable and balanced for such a big dessert beer. 7449

Pours a beautiful dark orange beer with a not very long lasting white head. Smells vanilla, bourbon and milk. Tastes chocolate, vanilla, and milk. I love this stuff. Low carbo, medium body and a sticky oily texture. Another great barley wine from emelisse.
