5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Gridare al miracolo è d’obbligo di fronte a questo capolavoro ed è incomprensibile quanto questa birra sia sottovalutata. Un Barley Wine unico, che unisce alla fratta matura la complessità data dall’invecchiamento in botte in un amalgama spettacolare che non si dimentica facilmente.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl, at RBNAG-11. It pours an orangey, reddish, unclear body with a small, off-white to beige head. Some roasted notes in the aroma, caramel and dried fruits dominating. Pleasant, but not as complex as I could wish for. Caramel maltyness, hints of honey and with some dried fruits in the flavor. Full-bodied, slightly warming and with pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish with dried fruits and maltyness. A rather lovely one, unusual, but lovely. 111015
