On tap at Rustico. Served in a snifter. The pour brings forward a dark reddish-amber brew with a thin white head and a bit of collar. The nose carries a touch of rye plus some earthy and citrus hops. A bit of booze. The flavor has a good dose of rye backed up by a slight amount of flavorful hops. The mouthfeel is the winner for the beer, with a nice creaminess followed by some spice from the rye. Overall, the mouthfeel is by far the best part; the rest of it is fairly uninteresting.

glennmastrange (2431) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Tap, Moderate roasted, cereal and caramel for the malt, moderate cooked orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with date and fig and a hint of sherry. Head is small, creamy/frothy, off-white with good lacing and good legs, and is mostly lasting. Color is murky amber/orange. Flavor starts moderately sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium to full, oily with a soft to lively finish, and finishes dry, lightly astringent and sticky. A damn good Barley Wine with a rare mix of depth and perfect balance.

tectactoe (3118) - Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle: Thanks, Mike. Copper body with a swampy brown tint; translucent, topped with a half-inch eggshell layer of foam. HEAVY buckwheat on the nose. Very dry & grainy, spicy as a result. Alcohol stands out, too. Back-end has notes of perfume, flowers, roses, grass, & a mild staleness. Flavor is the same. Overloaded with dry buckwheat, spicy grains, & earthiness. Kind of old tasting, accented by booze, stale caramel malt, light papery oxidation, grass, & mild herbal notes. Sticky malts get sweeter with time, the finish grows more cloying with each sip. Still maintains a strong graininess & stale flavor. This one wasn’t for me.

Theydon_Bois (12726) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle at the Cads 10th Anniversary bash, thanks to Daniel, 29/03/15. Very lightly hazed orange amber with a decent beige covering. Nose is rich fruits, orange marmalade, spice, toffee sauce, candied fruit peel. Taste comprises sticky toffee, mandarin, candied orange peel, spice, sticky tropical fruit notes. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent barley wine, good depth of character and balance of sweetness tempered with bitterness.

HammerTroll (819) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 23, 2015
Cloudy brown color, minimal off-white head. Bready, fruity and hoppy aroma, a bit boozy (not that strong for 10.4% ABV). Taste is similar, with pleasant bitterness and nice bittersweet fruity finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Really nice one.
(Svijet Piva 0,75l bottle)
