Bottle @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam.
Thought it was a barrel aged DIPA, turned out to be a very dry/hopped barley wine. Deceptively drinkable, quite nice.

Pours a dirty, hazy orange with decent, short-lived head and not much lacing. Aroma is sweet, spicy, nutty with toffee. Taste is caramel malts, toffee, herbal, brown sugar, finishing a little drier with hops. Not a bad one, but not outstanding in any particular way. ABV not obvious.

Bottled. Pours clear amber with a small, laicing beige head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, dried fruit and hoppy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with bitter notes. Medium to full bodied, oily to syruoy texture and soft carb. An excellent barley.

It has a teste and a smell of rye bread. It also taste a little bit like port wine. Not my favourite type though
