Bičre huileuse qui colle au palet. Un peu trop sucrée peut-ętre. Peu pétillante. Riche et complexe. A déguster lentement.

angel77 (800) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 28, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl tomada varias veces durante el invierno de 2011 - 2012 en pacos. Alucinante Barley wine, hasta ese momento y creo que hasta hoy en día la mejor que he tomado. Una cerveza imprescindible repetir lo antes posible para ver sí ha habido algún cambio en el paladar Color marrón con toques cobrizos muy oscuro. Cuerpo medio - alto con un volumen de alcohol de 12 vol perfecto que realza todo el conjunto, aumentando la sensación alcohólica cada vez más a medida que va calentando. Final con regusto bastante amargo para ser una Barley wine. Muy buena, muy buena. Alucinante.

ogreface (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 27, 2014
Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Világos meggyvörös színe van, belül elég ködös. Habja elég termetes, szivacsos, bézs színű, közepesen kitartó. Illata karamellás, cseresznye likőrös, kicsit csipkebogyós, élesztős, hangyányit sajtos, húsos, mély. Íze is igazán mély, sokrétegű, kergetőznek az édeskés, gyümölcsös, mandarinos, mézes, malátás, melaszos, likőrös zamatok, az élesztővel, a kesernyés komlógyantákkal, egy érdekes húsossággal. Sűrű, nehéz, olajos teste van, szegényes szénsavban és nem kirívó a magas alkoholtartalom sem benne. Utóíze édesen, sziruposan kezdődik, aztán átmegy keserédesbe, kissé szárazba. Rendkívül kiegyensúlyozott és összetett ital, ott a helye a fajta legjobbjai között!

Bottle 375ml, a dark red clear beer, with an excellent head. In the nose there is hop, orange fruits, alcohol and sweet. It is a full bodied beer, with a low carbonation. The taste is overwhelmingly sweet, with in the distance the bitterness of the hops. The beer is oily and sticky from all the sugar. If the beer wasn't that sweet is was much better! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reddish mahogany colour, moderate creamy beige head; aroma of caramel,biscuit, some citrus, liqueur and earthy notes; taste of caramel, candy sugar, herbal liqueur, dried berries yeast and (based on the intensive sweetness) surprising bitter aftertaste;12% ABV is fully hidden; excellent barley wine

spacecube (767) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2014
375ml bottle, pours deep brown with a small white head. Aroma is rich and sweet caramel, juniper berries, raisin and Christmas pudding, finish is rounded sweet with some citrus hop bitterness and caramel aftertaste. Carbonation low, texture oily and sick. This was a real pleasure to drink.

zenkis (551) - Ogre, LATVIA - DEC 30, 2013
bottle @ALEhouse, Riga
Pours red amber or deep coppery reddish with of-white medium top leaving medium thin-long lasing. On nose it comes medium intensity sweet malty, caramel-red berries, piney, sprusey and a bit citrusy hops touch as well. Complex aroma. Taste is like Imperial IPA with addition of loads of candy-sugar or caramel-berries flavor with pleasant and mild touch of hops bitter at the end. Pleasant flavour. Medium to full bodied, light pungent and light astringent on tongue, dry finish, ioly-slick texture, sweet+mild bitter aftertaste. Pleasant brew but to be ideal it lacks complexity in flavor and is a bit too sweet over time. But a small bottle is enjoyed in every sip.

freretoc (582) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 28, 2013
Bu en bouteille de 37.5cl, une couleur trouble un peu ratée męme avec des gros morceaux de dépots et pas de mousse, voilŕ pour les critiques négatives. En revanche en bouche elle est incroyable de richesse, bonne trčs malté en début de bouche, elle s’installe durablement au palais avec des côtés trčs caramels ! un délice absolu
