Arriva la bestia! L’unica cosa che non va è il colore, un miscuglio indescrivibile e torbido, l’aroma è drammaticamente luppolato e così il sapore, con in più l’equilibrio del malto.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2015 Nebuloso color arancio intenso con soffice schiuma bianca non molto persistente. Aroma diretto e intensissimo, forti sentori di luppolo, toffee, quasi di formaggio; resinosa, pungente e dolciastra. Gusto inizialmente dolciastro e molto maltato, poi amarissimo e generosamente luppolato con note agrumate e caramellate. Corpo massiccio, strutturata, sciropposa e liquorosa: una birra incredibilmente intensa, alcolica e forte, una mazzata tra capo e collo! Può stancare, ma è un "must" per chi ha la febbre dell’IBU.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
At a tasting, thanks DSG, ckear quite deep red colour, aroma of jam, lemon, biscuit, nuts and very ripe oranges, flavour of jam, butterscotch, lemon drops and flowers, bitter but overpowered by an extremely strong sweetness. Fair but unbalanced and quite hard to drink.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle, courtesy of Alex. Thanks Sir! It pours a mostly clear deep oragne/ ruby colour, like Grand Marnier. On top a small beige head that dissipates turning into a ring on the side of the glass. Aroma is sweet but hoppy at the same time, as the hops appear to have conferred mainly fruity notes. Loads of persimmon and ripened prunes in this one. Alongside big caramel and vanilla notes. A very subtle smoky note as well. The malty notes resembles a good bourbon profile. Taste is bittersweet, though to say for certain, and certainly well balanced. Hoppy bitterness on the palate, but the flavor profile is all on the sweet notes as, once again, hops confer mainly a fruity character. Once again persimmon and prunes, peaches and mangos. But all ripe fruit, sweet and bold. The malt profile in this one is simply outstanding then: vanilla, caramel, leather, tobacco and booze. In terms of profile, this really resembles a fine whiskey, obviously muted and way less boozy, but the sort of flavours are in that ballpark. Also, this reminded me of some very fine old style barleywines, just hopped up. Like a hopped up JW Lees Harvest. Honestly, I could see this being a great brew also without hops in the traditional barleywine style. Mouthfeel is bold and quite sticky with good carbonation. Overall, this is truly a masterpiece, and as I said, also without the hops this would be a great beer.

Sweet toffee/candi sugar nose with a slab of citrus. Hefty body with solid bitterness. Super sweet with toffee running the show. Very much a BWine IMHO.

Bottle shared at a CBC - Clerkenwell Sunday Tasting, London - thanks to whoever brought this one! Pours clear copper with a light, white foam head. Big and sweet, lots of ripe orange, toasty sugars, old pine. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm and sticky finish, loads of heavy resinous pine, thick mango, papaya and grapefruit. Sweet and piney. Plenty of ripe citrus. Good if a touch too bold.
