pdx77 (1328) - Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2014
On draught at Lucky Labrador for the 17th Annual Barleywine and Big Beer Festival. 2012 vintage. Murky copper color. Aroma is caramelized citrus, pitted fruit, and grass. Taste is tart grapefruit, prune, mango/passionfruit, sweet malt, candi sugar, and a hint of bitterness. Odd combination of flavors that somehow works.

Krāsa sarkana, puta maza. ļooti salds un iesalains. Bet šim pēcgarša ir krietni interesantāka kā jebkuram citam barley wine. Vajadzētu dzert mazliet vēsāku, lai nosistu saldumu. ļoti labs

Botella. Dulce y amarga a partes iguales con dosis de levaduras y mantequilla con notas licorosas en todo el paso por el paladar

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

angel77 (879) - 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!

Taste: lots of sugar, sweet, caramel, bitter hops, honey, bit lemony. Aftertaste: sweet, caramel, fruity, hoppy, piny hops. Wow, nice stuff!

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
