Cloudy orange-amber color; creamy head. Thye aroma is quite spicy, a bit fruity, with an impression of plastic. Good body, with strong carbonation; sweetish; the fermentation produced some byproducts, like a feeling of cabbage; the alcohol is too present.

The 330ml 2011 vintage bottle with lotto 214-11 was bought in late March 2012 at Johnny’s Off License (Via Veio) in Roma. Cloudy amber coloured body, slightly off-white head fading to a patchy surface. Spotty lacing to the glassware. Spiced fruity aroma, hints of apricot and herbal hops. Subdued vapour of alcohol. The taste character has got a bittersweet citrus peak with candy sweetness and yeasty fruitiness beneath. Lingering bittersweet ending with noticeable alcohol. Soft in the mouth. Full bodied. Enjoyed for about an hour at home in Tromsø, 30.12.2012.

330 ml bottle. Vintage 2012. Lotto 212 12. BB 07/2017. From Italy. Courtesy of brandman.
Hazy brown colour with a tiny tan head.
The aroma is very weak... surprisingly weak for a 10% barley wine... very sweet. The flavour is also super sweet with some alcohol and mild... nothing... Very sweet and not much more.

Bottle. Nose of caramel, peaches, esters, marmalade, alcohol. Orange-brown with lace. Flavors of pineapple, orange, peach, lovely flavors but still far too alcoholic and not integrated. Very tangy, but mostly hot. Should have waited 5 more years.
