Rich deep copper orange fairly clear with small tan head. Very caramel and earthy hop flavor. Toffe notes along with earthy pine hop flavor balances out to make a fine barley wine. Drink it slow!!!

huineman (423) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
66 cl bottle at Irreale, Madrid. Pours cloudy dark amber with fawn head. Aroma is extremely complex and intense: Pedro Ximenez, figs, dates, quince custard, strawberry jam, ripe banana... Taste is complex as well. At once fresh, metallic, sweetish and very bitter, with a long aftertaste that lasts long, long, long.
