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.

elegant 0.2 láhev přímo z pivovaru. Hazy brown colour, small beige head. Aroma of dried fruit, grainy malt, chocolate, caramel... Vinous start, intensive but not too sweet malt flavours with dried fruit such as figs, dates and raisins, also freshly brewed black tea, shy but pleasant hoppy finish. Extraordinarily smooth palate. Superb stuff!

Dark amber, some frothy head residue. Concentrated fruit, tutti frutti, alcohol, resin, caramel malt. Very sweet but very nice. Bit sticky but a fizzy small carbonation to balance. Some hop sharpness. A true sipper.

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.
