Very tasty barley wine. The Italian heritage is detectable in the sweet dark fruits and smooth spices. Very good.

Mortlach (1019) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 30, 2014
22/03/2014 Ma che siete venuti a dà (375ml bottle). Bruna con riflessi rubino, intensa, schiuma quasi assente. Al naso sentori di frutta rossa (icliegie), caramello, note di marsala, cioccolato, legno. In bocca è molto intensa, conferma il suo carattere vinoso, dolciastra con note di caramello, finale leggermente acidulo (frutta rossa) a bilanciare. Corpo elevato, carbonazione soft. Non male, ma forse le manca un po’ di eleganza.

From a 0.375l bottle @ Borefts 2013. This is a cloudy wood red brown one with a minimal bubbly transparent sidesticking top. Really nice nose. Sweet and woody with a really vinous touch to it. Loaded with sweet dark dried fruits and berries such a dates, raisins and prunes. A dark caramel also present next to honey and nuts. Really nice flavors as well with much the same elements as the nose had. Sweet sticky oily on the mouthfeel and soft sticking and prickling on the carbonation. Really really flavorful. Wonderfully complex, rich and sweet. Wouldn’t mind a bottle alone on a cold autumn evening. 28.09.2013
