profumo accattivante e ma senza esagerazioni o estremi morbida in bocca con una piacevole persistenza di amaro che aiuta a non far risaltare la componente alcolica

Linnet (1270) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2015
Immensely sweet, ABV evident, jam, marmalade, Brown sugar, earthy, fruity hops, powerful, but not that sophisticated. Copper colour, medium head, flavour is very sweet, bitterness is light, warming.

Swaroga (1715) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2015
This is one of the most easy to drink barley wines I’ve had so far. Has a soft and smooth mouth feel. Great looking head and lots of druity aromas with honey and tart. Lots of boiled, candied and dried fruits in the flavor. Plus some fresh citrus. Good stuff. Not a heavy Barley Wine one would expect from this style though.

ej (944) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep golden with a small top. Aroma of pale malts and caramel. Hints of vanilla. Taste is sweet but not overly so. Light bitter grassy notes. Pretty decent with well integrated / hidden alcohol. Full body and softly carbonated.

Nose is muscovado sugars, syrup, grains, deep malts, caramel, toffee and hints of alcohol, rum and toffee.
