GBZ59 (1181) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JAN 3, 2014
Botella de 750ml. Copa Borgoña. Precioso color anaranjado y apariencia nublada. La espuma marfileño amarillenta y cremosa forma una capa sólida, firme y persistente; al tiempo que dibuja anillos de encaje en las paredes. Perfil aromático soberbio con trazos de naranja, toffee, maltas Crystal, ciruelas y albaricoques maduros, matices herbales de alcaravea y un sutil tono resinoso por detrás. Entrada afrutada, malteada y cremosa que precede a un amargor cítrico que recuerda los zumos de naranja y mandarina. Cuerpo pleno y carbonatación suave. Textura viscosa y paladar reseco. En el intermedio afloran sabores resinosos y de pomelo; sin embargo, el final es dulce con leve amargor. Retrogusto de frutas maduras y resinas. El ABV se percibe como una sensación cálida, de agradable y delicado azucarado. Una deliciosa y gran cerveza!!!!! 750ml bottle. Bourgogne Wine glass. Cute & orangish color & cloudy appearance. Yellowish off-white creamy foam forms a thick, sticky & lasting crown as well as draws lacing rings on sides. Superb aroma profile: hints of orange, toffee, crystal malt, ripe plum, ripe apricot, herbal hues –caraway- & subtle resinous back. Fruity, malty & creamy upfront. Citric bitterness –orange & tangerine juice notes- follows. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous texture & dried palate. Slight resinous & grapefruit flavors in the middle. Sweet/slight bitter finish. Ripe fruit & resins on the aftertaste. ABV is shown as a kind, delicious sugary & warm sensation. A BIG ONE!!

wyzzywyz22 (2037) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle, 40th Birthday gift from Nick - cheers mate. Vivid dark orange pour with a smallish tan head . Aroma was tropical fruits, sweet malts, booze and piney hop. Robust , full, sweetish flavour that carried similar qualities to the nose with some hefty hop bitterness. Not sure you could class it as a Barley Wine, but its a very tasty beer which punches its weight nonetheless.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2013
750 mL bottle courtesy of Tyson, served in a stem glass next to Boogoop. Pours hazy caramel with a medium off-white head that mostly remains and leaves a slight fine lace. The nose has big fruity notes, along with flowers, caramel, grapefruit and pine. The flavour is medium fruity sweet with huge caramel along with flowers, fruit, citrus and slight pine. The finish is long and malty sweet with a slight hopping for balance. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a smooth, milky texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a great barley wine. It is a lighter, fruitier variant of Boogoop. Delicious. 2013-08-23

sebletitje (6916) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2013
Bouteille 75cl de et partagée avec Michele et Giorgio @ Il Prestesto, Bologna. Orangée trouble, col blanc cassé. Arôme est fruité caramel, bouquet impressionnant de riz rappelant un bol de céréales. Pointe de purée - grains et fruité agréable. Palais est épais, résineux avec cet arrière-goût de riz qui offre une certaine rondeur et épaisseur en bouche. Houblonné agréable tirant sur le tropical avec un fini huileux léger.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2013
Flaske, 75 cl. Klar og ravfarvet drik med et strot, massivt hvidt skumhovede. Næsen minder om Ris a la mande. Tonsvis af humle. Pikante noter af citrus, men desværre også af plastik og sure sokker. Masser af krop - og alkohol. Medium bitter-sødme. Er ikke vild med smagen af ris - den minder mig om kærnemælk. Kunne smage den stadigvæk næste morgen. Ikke rart. Men lækker humleprofil.
