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.

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.

laiti (6454) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Draught @ 4:20. Aroma is sweet, fruity and hoppy with caramel and toffee candy. Flavour has resiny malt, tropical fruits, alcohol and toffee. Heavy, sweet and resiny - a barley wine as it should be. There?s a slight gluey tone that disturbs me a bit though. Also alcohol starts to come through after some sips. More American BW than the most of the America BWs itself. Massive, drinkability is not that great due to the overwhelming everything.

PapaVillum (576) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2015
330 ml, flaske, 11,0 % ABV, BB 12/2014, købt i Kvickly Allerød, 22. februar 2015. Kastanjebrun, let rødlig, ufiltreret italiensk Barley Wine med minimal offwhite og flygtig skumtop på 1/2 cm, som svinder til overflade bobler og minimal kant umiddelbart efter ophældning. Vinøs og intensiv aroma af humle, sherry og tørret frugt. Skunky og med gær-nuancer af bondegård. Humlearoma af urter/krydderier. Smagen er bittersød, grænsende til det let beske. Smagsbilledet indledes sødt, og går derefter i balance mellem bitter og sødme. Balance / ubalance? Jeg er lidt i tvivl om det ramte i dette bryg. Opsummering: kraftig bitter og medium sødme. Intet surt eller salt. Stor krop med minimal karbonering et godt stykke under medium og en olieret konsistens. Bittersød afslutning med masser af alkohol og mellem lang. Meget humlet og bitter Barley Wine, som måske skulle prøves af på noget sødlig ost. Kompliceret.

Beer4000 (4829) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2015
330 ml bottle. Clear deep golden to amber body with a medium sized, lacing off-white head. Strong aroma of sweet malt, dry fruit, grapefruit and some alcohol, actually less boozy than expected for the high ABV. Flavor is very sweet and malty, toast, dry fruit, medium bitterness and rather boozy. Full body and a long lasting, sweet alcoholic aftertaste. Pretty heavy this one, some complexity but too sticky sweet and boozy to really make a good score in my book. The first little sip was a lot more impressive, but drinking the whole bottle was just a bit too much.

The aroma is of dark fruits. The taste is strong. Dark fruits, a little alcohol and sweetness. But still good. Good bitterness that fills the mouth forever. When it starts to get a little warmer, you feel more alcohol. But who drinks a beer at 11% fast? Good rating anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

DSG (7485) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle sample at the last tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Stas & Vova. Clear amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, some cookies and lots of stale hops. Sweet flavor with malt, caramel, stale hops, some bitterness and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Probably better when fresher.

StoutHead (778) - DENMARK - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy red-ish colour with a small off-white bubbly head. Aroma is fruity but not much else (I have a cold at the moment). Taste is of malt, fruits - and lots of them - like grape, grapes & figs, caramel, sugar, hops and loads of alcohol. Full body and low carbonation. Very sweet and viscus with a slightly bitter and boozy aftertaste. Not bad but nothing special.
