Rune (8173) - Tromsø, - DEC 31, 2012
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.

sebletitje (6761) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de Roy’s Beer, Milano. Reserva 2013, 12%, bottle #3912, BB 31/08/2018, lotto# 231/13. De couleur orangée-ambrée, col fin blanc cassé. Arôme est profond au niveau fruité fermenté, petit bouquet de barrique tirant sur le vin blanc. Rétro-nasal mielleux et complexe avec une petite touche surette. Palais rappelant une bière de DeDolle avec une influence très belge, les 12% ressortent fort bien, fruité fermenté rappelant l’abricot, miel et pointe de barrique. Le tout est un peu liquoreux, collant au lèvres sur des notes sucrées (brun?). A déguster à son aise, complexe et intéressante, très belge dans l’inspiration mais avec ce petit plus italien fort appréciable.

Davros (1991) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2014
Pours hazy amber with very little in the way of head. Nose shows funky notes suggesting at acidity, a bit of sweet confectionery and some caramel and booze. Similar flavours, slight acidity, lots of confectionery-like sweetness and a fair bit of booze. Some candied fruit. Carbonation seems very low.

Ragnampiza (492) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAR 12, 2014
330 ml bottle from ArtigianBeer, served in a snifter glass. 2013 vintage, bottle n° 278. Deep sunrise orange, almost amber, with an average off-white head which dissipated leaving a nice and persistent thick ring of foam. Intense aroma, quite herbal/medicinal with notes of toffee, strawberry jam, sour black cherry, and diapers. Unused diapers, fortunately! Just a hint of booze, but nothing resembling the actual ABV. Quite complex in the mouth, revealing different layers of flavours each time. Definitely plums, dark fruits under spirits and baked apples. Alchoolic finish, with a pleasent warm down the throath, quite sweet and honey-like. Average carbonation, medium body and oily texture. A fantastic sipper.

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.
