Syrup style piwo with loads ov overripe fruits and some liquor in the back. The high abv is very tasteable but not that bad how I expected it, A bit overaromatised but decent one.

Bottle from trade with mmahut - many thanks, Marek! The barley wine pours out in a deep dark brown-ruby colour with low head and smooth body. Aroma of dried grapes, rum and cake. Taste of ripe barley, cream cake, roisins, plums, prunes, dried fruits, rum and light chocolate. Wonderful and smooth to drink, enjoyed it very much.

Courtesy of mmahut. Offwhite head. Aroma is huge sugary maltiness with some nutty buttery and almondy malt. Flavour is really big with mouthfilling notes of nuts and sweetness. Alcohol is very present but just to bring complexicity to this one. Very slick and sweet, very balanced and fullfilling. This is just raelly well crafted beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 0,20L. Almost 7 months after date expired, but this is strong barley wine, so no worries. Slightly hazy, dark copper colour with thin, light brown head that goes into the crown fast. Medium strong aroma of cognac, cask wood, caramel, alcohol and some fruit like pear and peach. Taste starts heavy sweet and syrupy with some fruity liquor note and finnish heavy sweet. Full body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. It was the most expensive beer I bought on my beerhunt trip in Brno, but it’s worth every Kcz.

Corked bottle, 3 years of age, thank you Anička. Dark amber body with low head. Aroma has a lot of dried fruits, plums, caramel, oak, woody, toffee, light floral notes too. Alcohol is pretty hidden. Taste has intensive burned caramel sweetness with low earthy bitterness and complex fruity after taste. Body is full, high carbonation, oily texture. Excellent.
