Hits the style. A strong ale of piney citrus grapefruit hops with a large floating mass of grain. Good drinkability, above average mouthfeel, suitably carbonated. Cloudy light brown coloured body, with large retained head.

beer-yum (745) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 19, 2015
Restrained but full aroma in a cloudy dark brown pour. Totally different taste is woody but laid back. Bitter initial balance dissipates to leave a pleasing finish. Totally hides the strength - which could be dangerous if one likes it.

Cloudy amber/brown, average sized off white head. Aroma is malty, fruity. Taste is also malty, fruity, yeasty, slightly piney. Light but pleasant hoppy touch. Very thick and smooth. No alcohol presence. Full body, soft carbonation. Very interesting.

Not sure how I had not rated this before, anyways here it goes. 75cl bottle shared at The Cad’s 10yr anniversary celebrations at CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to Daniel for this one. It pours a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, with notes of candied orange peel, apricot jam, resin, wood, and light alcohol. Taste is sweet and lightly bitter and boozy in the finish, with notes of orange peel, resin, wood, vanilla, apricot jam. Full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nice American style barleywine.

Saeglopur (685) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 29, 2015
750 ml bottle shared by MisoW at RB Tasting Vienna March Edition. Thanks!
Amber/orange, hazy body, with a big, creamy, light beige head.
Aroma with a lot of fruity hops, like citrus, stone fruits, berries, but also a heavy malt presence of biscuit and honey.
Taste follows this, but with even more honey like malts.
Medium, quite creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sweet malty, zesty, fruity.

Really tasty! Loads of fruity hops and loads of smooth, sweet malts. Inbetween an Imperial IPA and a Barley Wine in my opinion, if not more on the IIPA side. Whatever it is, very enjoyable, big beer!
