Complexa aromŕticament. Notes d’envelliment en fusta, aroma a fruita i un punt de flors. Cremosa. Final sec i alcohňlic. Per prendre amb calma després d’un ŕpat.

Matts_Property (830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark mahogany with caramel lacing. Aroma of toffee, caramel, red wine, dark fruits such as plums and raisins, and wood. Flavour the same including burnt brown sugar. Luxurious mouth feel. Lightly carbonated, full bodied, sweet but not cloying. Very nice indeed.

Swaroga (1758) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2012
375cl bottle. Hazy dark red liquid with medium red tanned head. Nose : intensive deep notes of alcohol, red wine, chocolate, wood barrels, wedding cake. Sip : medium density body with thick oily texture. Almost no carbonation. Sweet and warming with alcohol. It develops dryness like a port wine does. I’m surprised how the barrels go through this brew. They match well. It’s still easy to drink for a barley wine. It does look more like a beer when we see the perfect head. I enjoy it.

Bottle @ mr. Hangover tasting. Aroma is big caramel bready fruity hoppy notes. Fat fruity hoppy notes, followed by big alcoholic caramel bead notes. Long lingering bitter yet sweet hoppy malt goodness in the finish. Awesome.

January 19, 2013 - bottle shared by BVery. Brown pour with some head and spotty lacing. Aroma was caramel, dark fruit and some spice. Taste was consistent with a red wine finish. Nice and smooth with a medium to full body.

Pours a cloudy mahogany with a ring of tan head that leaves light lacing. Complex aroma, featuring butterscotch, toffee(these I feel are from the wine barrels), figs, raisins, lactose, biscuits, and a touch of alcohol. Alcohol is more prevalent in the mouth, but so is the yeast. The sweetness is big, the bitterness is minimal. Thick and chewy mouthfeel, and that lingers more so than the toffee aftertaste in the mouth. I loved it! I was lucky to find the last one on the shelf, and if I can get lucky enough to ever see this again, I will re-review a year later.

18/I/14 - 37.5cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ RBBWG III, my place - BB: 27/V/23 (2014-93) Thanks to DomienS for sharing the bottle!

Clear red amber beer, creamy irregular light beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: fruity, malts, some citrus, grains, bit rural. MF: ok carbon, full body. Taste: bit sweet, sugary start, malts, some caramel, hoppy, dried fruits, some citrus. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, sweet and sugary touch, caramel, vanilla, some citrus, hoppy. Complexer than it’s regular version, but I preferred the regular nonetheless.
