Marko (4717) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 27, 2016
On tap at Craft Room. Lovely crystal clear ruby red body with an off white, medium sized head that went down fast. Full, slightly stale, slightly grainy heavy barleywine maltiness with a light touch of something resembling buckwheat I guess, not what I think of it, but close, ending dry with vague vinegar (without the sourness, if you can imagine that). This is just way too sweet in my book, Heavy caramel and candy-like maltiness, not even with that much complexity other than that. It’s tasty, yeah, but falls into the "typical sticky BW" trap too soon. If you like them like that, you’ll love this. It’s a good beer, but I don’t think I would go for it again.

Amber color with medium off white head. Aromas of caramel flower, sugar and toffee. Sweety taste, some bitterness, medium body. Not really a fan of it.

Draft. Dark orange colour with a medium off-white head. Smell leads me to an IPA, taste more of a stout. Aroma has cherry blossom, roasted buckwheat, more floral notes. Flavour is a bit hoppy, roasted chocolate with a well balanced finish of bitter and sweet roasted, toasty malt.

Panzerfaust (780) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAR 24, 2016
750ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours a hazy reddish orange color with a small but thick creamy head that lingers. Aroma is intensely fruity but relatively simple. Mango, peach, pommegranate and grapefruit dominate throughout. Maybe a bit of sweet citrus and little malt presence. Taste continues the fruity sweetness but adds a bitter feeling towards the end. The flavors remain within the tropical fruit and sweet citrus comfy zone but there’s a bitter hint that’s not completely refined. Alcohol well integrated, medium to big body. Smooth. Neither super-intense nor extremely-complex. Just a competent hoppy and well-made Barley Wine.

Bottle pours a hazy copper color with a large, lasting, lacy light beige head. The aroma is caramel sugar, toffee, buckwheat, and grapefruit. Sweet sugary caramel malt flavor. Finishes with moderate bitterness - citrus and herbal notes. Medium-full bodied, somewhat syrupy. Hides the booze decently well. A bit overrated, but good.
