4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dobre choć nazbyt alkoholowe piwo ze srednia piana ale ladnym ciemno czerwonym krwistym kolorze. Zapach granatow i malin. W smaku poziomka, maliny jagody oraz szczególnie granat. Bardzo alkoholowe i w pierwszym lyku i w nozdrzach się go czulo i zwłaszcza finisz. Lepiej było go ukryc lub po prostu odrobina mniej tak to by było smaczniejsze piwo Bo granat zbombardowany spirytem mi nie pasuje.

341ml bottle from Brewery Creek. Bottled May 12, 2014. Pours a murky copper with a beige head. Aroma is candied tropical fruits, citrusy. Taste is till very hoppy with candied tropical fruits, licorice. It is amazing after 2 years! Though remembering Widmer Brothers Old Embalmer 2012 which was tasted in 4 years after bottling and still was very hoppy I am already not surprised :-) Tropical fruits bitterness aftertaste. Excellent!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Uba ja Humal. BB... there is a stamp but I can’t understand what it means. Pours darkish golden/amber with beige head. Aroma of rather boring caramelly malts, toffee... The usual. Taste likewise; caramelly sweet with rather harsh bitterness in finish. Body moderately medium, carbonation modest. Not bad at all but overall pretty random, needs more aging probably. Too bad the stupid copywriters are so full of shit. Minus one for the bullcrap.

Bottle share. seeing the rave reviews and not getting it. Actually poured my glass out. Dark, bitter pit fruit, prune juice. Not recalling a barley wine at all. Tried hard to find some redeeming qualities, and then I gave up.
