4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
10.4%ABV. Rice barleywine.
Tapped out deep gold. 10ºSRM.
Nose is clean, light sweet. Hint of steamed rice cakes. At the end, there is a strong funky tang of molasses.
Mouthfeel is syrupy. Palate is sweet and light with toasted malt with taffy, malted milkshakes, honey and dates. Hops are resin and pine sap and a little earthy.
Overall, has a palate and taste profile so similar to 90 min IPA its a little creepy! So yes, for me this time on tap, it came across like an Imperial IPA with a full-bodied grain bill.
Goes on Favorites List!

Bottle. Pours golden with a thick white head. Fabulous aroma of grapefruit, peach, lemon grass, caramel and toffee. Great palate, thick body, medium carbonation. The high alcohol is evident in the flavour, also Demerara sugar, pine, grapefruit. Long, bitter finish. Yum.

Tap at CBFZ 2016. Sticky malts, that sweet flavour, the bitterness, caramel: Yes, it’s a barley wine. Smooth and little boozy, but not too much. Sip, sip, sip. Good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Svijet piva (World of Beer), shared with Marko and Ogi. Murky ocher, frothy white head, lasting quite long. Aroma is alcohol and tropical fruits. Strong licorice flavor after a sip, sweet and alcoholic. Full body, strong, you can feel the alcohol. Lacks a distinct finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a small white frothy head that lasts for long. Aroma is very fruity with a fair amount of resinous hops. Notes are mainly of berries, cherries, tropical fruits and a bit of sweet citrus with en resin and spruce encompassing around. No rice notes at all despite its use as an ingredient. Nice. Taste is very sweet, intense and fruity. Some bitter hints can be felt for balance but it shows mostly flavors of red berries, peach, mango and other overripe fruits. Marmalade, sugars and esters. Some alcoholic kick gives it a true Barley Wine effect. Almost full bodied, carbonation is soft. Prolonged aftertaste. Another nice fruity Barley Wine that doesn’t push too far away from it’s similar sisters Bogoop and Majsgoop.
