COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Bold American Barleywine. As bitter and big as it can get. Hoppy, sticky, malty, red and strong, this beast will fill your blood with alpha acids. Definitely for the brave.

IlGagario (114) - Modena, ITALY - MAR 9, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2016 In bottiglia. Colore arancio molto scuro/marrone. Schiuma corta, compatta, a shampoo, colore bianco opaco/crema di caffè, grassa e pannosa, di media persistenza. Olfatto intensamente maltato, con alcool, lievito, resina, cardo, sabbia, polvere, carta antica e china. Carbonazione soffice, acuta in palato, alcoolica e leggermente piccante. Aroma di frutta rossa scura in parte secca, prugna, alcool, resina amara, zucchero bruciato, uva fragola americana, erbe. Gusto nettamente alcoolico, molto dolce, poi amaro pieno. Finale di lievito ed erbe che da amaro torna verso una dolcezza alcoolica, corta e mediamente caramellata. L’alcool è nettamente presente, a tratti crudo, molto solleticante. Luppolatura sovrastata, poco efficace. Corpo da pieno a pienissimo, comunque non così ingombrante. Trama oleosa grassa. Beva da degustazione, annoiata da una non sempre piacevole sensazione sticky e la predominanza, a birra riscaldata, delle note di vecchia cellulosa chinata. Una birra con elementi impegnativi, ma le note fruttate nel complesso riescono ad alleggerire, pulendo bene la bocca. Grazie a Saverio e Cristina per il dono e la scoperta.

leghorn99 (218) - Livorno, ITALY - OCT 3, 2015
Color ambrato carico,abbastanza torbido; schiuma non troppo abbondante, color crema, lascia un lieve cappello persistente. Al naso si avvertono distintamente forti note maltate e un alto grado alcolico; intensi aromi di frutta tropicale. In bocca, al primo approccio dolci note di malto e caramello, ai quali fanno seguito sapori di frutta tropicale; sorprendente finale amaro e luppolato. Corpo pieno e mieloso, carbonazione scarsa; sembra quasi di assistere alla degustazione di un vino liquoroso.

olio (9200) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Tap @ 4:20, Rome.
Pours dark hazy amber color with a small head. Lots of sweet resinous hops on the nose, caramel and some alcohol, sweet tropical fruits too. Reminds me of Avery at first. Alcohol it’s not that strong on the flavor, warming only, sweet caramel and resinous malts, pine and tropical fruits. Good balance here. Tasty.
