FTA: Finally found it. Had several pints during vacation in Italy. In an Irish pub. So keg option. Have not seen it since. Was more like a bock rather than strong ale. More malty and hoppy. Loved it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper orange beer with a creamy head disappearing quite quickly. The aroma is caramelly malty with some alcohol. The flavor is mostly caramelly malty sweet with the alcohol coming through. Thereís a little amount of bitterness. The palate is sticky and pretty full. I would have expected something more refined or complex from this beer, now itís just mostly alcoholic.

0.33l bottle. Deep orange body, nice beige head. Caramelly aroma with lots of fruityness and a minimal roastyness. Lots of caramel, some chocolate, reisin and bread with lots of fruity hoppyness in the flavor. Big body. Itís like a double IPA. Awesome beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, november 07. Clear copper color with some light orange hues and a thick, creamy, beige head. Nice sherry, plums, cake, fruity aroma. Fruity alcoholic flavor, some fruit cake, toffee notes. Nice and tasty. Quite drinkable for such a strong beer. Medium to full mouthfeel, thick but moreish. A bit rough and with a short aftertaste but enjoyable nonetheless. Rich, warming and enjoyable barley wine.
