COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Did you also at some point in your life get seduced by promising words like ’probably the best in the world’, ’it works every time’ etc.? This American Barley Wine Ale says it how it is. It’s intense, attention seekingly hoppy, and definitely your kind of beer. A beer with a big ego, drive and a huge thirst for recognition.

Dzeru šo malziet pa siltu. Gan garšā, gan aromātā gribētu vairāk intersitātes no barely puses, jo pietrūkst balansa.

Ruby clear beer with 1 finger of white head that dont last too long. Some sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Aroma: Nice barley wine notes (caramel, red sweet fruits, dried fruits like fig, raisin, dried cherry) and smoothly added hoopy notes (citrus and resin). Taste: 1st big sweetness- classic barley wine- caramel, dried fruits, sweet red fruits- than medium hoppy bitterness (with citrus, grass, resin) makes it more drinkable. Palate: again classic barley wine- full body, sticky sugary sweet, low carbonation, strongly worming up bot no alcohol notes on aroma or taste. Overall: Very good, pretty classic american barley wine.

Emek (242) - Wroc³aw, POLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Piekny rubinowy kolor, piana niska, szybko redukujaca. W aromacie slodko i owocowo,glownie czerwone owoce tropikalne. W smaku dochodzi solidna ale nie bardzo wysoka goryczka i alkohol - wyczuwalny ale nieprzeszkadzajacy. Pelne, bardzo slodkie. Ta slodycz jak dla mnie nieco zbyt meczaca. Ale piwo ogolnie bardzo dobre.

Derbeth (646) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle. Brown colour, hazy, small white head. Aroma is lots of red fruit (strawberry, raspberry), fig, herbal hops on finish. Alcohol is warming, but does not disturb. Sorry, I don’t feel any pine or grapefruit. Quite strong bitterness. Full body, but not heavy, soft carbonation. Very good.

JorisPPattyn (9134) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2015
Small cream head over hazy foxy brown beer. New World hops with orange/mandarine/grapefruit aromas. Bit cheesy too. Sweet-smelling caramel, cakebottom, maltsyrup. Bitter-sweetish flavours. Again wafflesyrup, oranges, mandarines, citruspeel. Pineapple too, if less sweet - sweetness hardly increasing warming up, BTW. Medium bodied only, well-carbonated. Hopoils forming the textures. Good Barley Wine, no doubt, but the MF is a bit lacking.

pityu (487) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle - Hazy deep copper colour, medium, creamy beige head, good retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, raisins, dried fruits, some chocolate. Taste of sweet caramel, raisins, dates, dried plum, delicate hop bitterness in the end. Full body, moderate carbonation, velvety texture, nice bittersweet finish. Great barley wine.

Pours a deep golden copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lots of toffee and sweet caramel with some hints of pine and bitter hop presence. Leather, caramel corn, graham cracker, booze.
