4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Una delle cose piu’ buone capitate al mio palato......
La definirei il sassicaia della birra...
barley wine con note ipa ...un esplosione infinita di sapori ...
Questa birra e’ facilmente abbinabile a formaggi ,frittatine di luppolo o addirittura frutti di mare....

Another bottle courtesy of Deuane
A - Pours murky orange with a small half finger tall off white head leaving spotty lacing down the glass.
S - Smells of rich caramel malt, earthy hops, light buscuity malt, honey, and a touch of dulled peppery spice.
T - Starts off with a nice dose of sweet caramel malt quickly giving way to a mix of earthy hops, toffee, peppery spice, chocolate, and the chewy wheat. Pretty damn hot still for being three years old. Finish is a bit dry with a mix of light spice and chewy wheat lingering on the pallet for some time.
M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Smooth, spicy, feel with a mix of spice and wheat lingering through the finish.
O - Not bad but for being three years old you would think the heat would die down a bit, not ramp up. Glad I got to try it but I doubt I would ever seek another one of these out.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 10.4%. Hazy brown colour, moderate but lasting off-white head. Very nice aroma of fruity and piney American hops, some sweetish malts in the background. The flavour is dangerously drinkable and even refreshing for a beer of this strength, some sweetness but no too much. And of course large amounts of American hops, fruity first, with a massive resinous bitterness in the finish.

At Zeebra II. Dark orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with a small off-white head. Light lacing left on the glass.
Aroma is quite fruity, mostly dark frutis like prunes, a bit of wheat, malts, some hops. Taste is also fruity, hops, wheat, grass, light toffee. More bitter than I expected. Medium body, very dry, with good carbonation. Overall a great beer, reminded me of double IPA
