Bevuta in bottiglia, grazie Max. Il colore è bruno con riflessi rosso scuro, schiuma quasi assente. Al naso sentori di cigliege sciroppate, caramello, marsala, cioccolato nero e torba. Al palato è molto intensa, liquorosa e dolciastra. Il finale è leggermente acidulo. Birra dal buon corpo. Non male, bravi.

Douberd (4860) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2016
(Toccalmatto Bedda Matri Marsala Wine Barrel Aged) Bottle 375 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 12% Dark brown colour on the body and a bit murky, with some red shades around it, with a small beige head consisting mainly of bubbles, with low retention. Very nice aroma, sweet red wine, sherry, dark fruits, alcohol. Taste is sweet and less boozy than expected, again plenty of vinous notes, dark fruits, light caramel, sugars. Medium body with soft carbonation, quite sticky on the palate. Quite good.

Saeglopur (1699) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 2, 2016
375 ml bottle bought at Ottakringer Braukulturwochen 2015, bb 2026.
Dark copper-brown body, with almost no head.
Aroma of barrel, chocolate, red wine, dark fruits, coconut, alcohol.
Tastes of barrel, coconut, red wine, chocolate, cocoa, dark fruits, booze.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes boozy, sweet, wooden, vinous, with cocoa, dark fruits, subtle coffee.

Nice one, although I was expecting a bit more. Pretty boozy, with quite dominant wine barrel notes. Also with some nice smooth dark malts though. Overall not among my favourite beers from this brewery.

Un capolavoro! Barleywine superlativo, i 24 mesi in botte fanno il loro dovere. Barley complesso, con un profilo aromatico caratterizzato delle note del marsala e dei malti, danno note di biscotto e pane

ippopotamo36 (1652) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 10, 2015
At the ACBF in Vichte-Belgium with markoijelena, courtesy of the brewer who offered samples of his 3 Barley Wines. This was the one I liked the most and that I can recall after such a long time, also the other 2 were tasty. Pours a dark brown color with some brightness, almost no foam. Nose: caramel, marsala wine, wet wood. Mouth: dry fruit (red fruit as well), again marsala wine and some chocolate. A very nice and tasty BW.

Fin (9596) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie , consumed at home Saturday 9th May 2015 Cloudy dark, murky, brown, very dirty puddle looking, no head. When you pour it, it actually looks thick. Sweet notes on the aroma, massively indulgent like a dessert wine, sweet woodiness. It’s 12% and you can tell it’s that strong.A7 A2 T7 P3 Ov15 3.4
