3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2011 Bottle. Pours out in a beautiful hazy deep burgundy red colour with a rich sticky off-white head. Big, deep and rich fruity aroma of prune, raisins, black cherries, forest scents, red grapes and dense malts. Full-bodied with rich malty and fruity notes of prunes, red berries, sweet English licorice, leather and and mild gentle white pepper. Smooth mouthfeel. Long aftertaste of raisins, prunes, over-riped raspberries, cherry-skins, caramelized nuts, and mild pepper. A wonderful piece of art.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle (Zmogsala 2015, Vilnius) (7+:4:8:4+:15+=3.8+++)
Lovely sharp sweet aroma, not so bretty, but another wild component’s got its teeth into this. Beautiful dark orange, and a small ring of bubbles. First taste is sweet and peachy, but very quickly it turns into pure apricot. Beautiful attenuation, not too sweet. Love the apricot finish. Anna gets walnut, I find that odd, as I would normally home in on that kind of component. Superb barley wine.
