(bottle) pours a slightly hazy amber-ruby colour with a frothy beige head, quite viscous. aroma of heavy tropical fruit, especially mango and pineapple, some caramel, heavy cherries, nettles and brown sugar, honeymelon, lemons and some very light alcohol. flavour is very sweet, with notes of roasted malts, caramel and heavy herbal hops, some light yeast and raisins. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

pdx77 (1367) - 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

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

angel77 (951) - 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 (1345) - 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!
