Voor de wintermaanden hebben wij een bijzondere Barley Wine gebrouwen. Dit donkere bier met maar liefst 10% alcohol hebben we extra lang gerijpt hebben om de smaken goed te laten ontwikkelen. Tijdens het rijpen hebben we ook snippers eikenhout aan de tank toegevoegd, wat samen met de mouten en hop een heerlijk vol en complex karakter geeft. Zorg dat je lekker zit en langzaam drinkt om echt van deze Barley Wine te genieten.

tomer (2425) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 19, 2015
At a tasting, many thanks Mom and Dad, almost no head, slow gushing, murky brown color with reddish taints, aroma of smoke, oak and vanila, flavor of smoked cheese with a biscuity sweetish malt and some oak, light sourness, light to medium bitterness. A bit strange, fair.

Lilja (2274) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2015
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, plommon, vita russin, farinsocker med toner av marsipan och choklad. Lagom sötma, syrlig, en aning pepprig beska med smak av citrusskal.

oh6gdx (23692) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Bottled. Deep amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is toffee, some rather boozy notes along with some slight fruity and floral notes. Flavour is quite boozy with some very sweet fruity and floral notes as well as mild spices. Too much alcohol for it’s own good.

Pours a thick brown (almost black) glass of beer. A very nice Barley Wine with a nice aroma of malt and hops.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle, Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Dark amber pour with a small off white head. Spice, caramel malts and fruits present in the beak. The flavour was pretty booze heavy with malts, yeast, wood and leather in attendance alongside some bitterness. Fair enough but not smashing it out the park.

Vili (193) - FINLAND - JAN 16, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with light brown medium head. Aroma is full of bread, caramel, coffee and malts. Taste is medium sweet, hints of caramel and medium bitterness. Maybe a bit too much alcohol on the malty aftertaste, even for a barley wine. Ending is nice, however. Decent companion for dark winter months.

MrHangover (3583) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber brown beer with a medium sized off white head on top. Aroma of loads of sugar, malts, slight chocolate, caramel. Flavor is medium sweet, slight vineous characters, caramel again. Not very complex, but the flavors are still very nice. Nice balance, nothing extraordinary or strange, just a well crafted Barley Wine. Nice.

0,33 pullo@ OPP. Samea kauniin paahteisen karamellin väristä. Tuoksussa paahteista mallasta, palvikinkkua, alkoholia, tummaa hedelmää ja humalaa. Maussa makeaa tuhtia mallasta, lähes palanutta sokeria, luumua. Täyteläinen.

Kavu (3307) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2014
0,33l bottle @ One Pint Pub. Pours murky amber with a low off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts and alcohol. Flavor is strong, slightly sweet and bitter malts with alcohol, some yeast and plenty of hops. Not the easiest beer, but very good.
