Bottle @ Odense Tasting, Oktober 2012. Pours ruby amber with a bubbly head. Nose is dried fruit, alcohol and mild spices. Soft with a low carbonation. Warming alcohol. It’s tasty but perhaps it lacks a bit in complexity. Sticky and oily.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
At ACBF. Another of those extremely wine-like Italian new generation barley wines, clear bronze colour, almost no head. Perfumey, vinous, sweet aroma, raisins, toffee, honey, brown sugar, port wine, banana; honeyish and candied sweet taste, very vinous and port-like, oily mouthfeel, low carbo, long vinous finish with lingering candied sweetness and drying, warming alcohol, hint of herbal hops for bittering balance. Enjoyable sipper, could be a good introduction to the beer world for wine people...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at BBF 6, 26/09/14.
Mahogany brown with a decent beige covering that clears to edgework.
Nose carries a woody rinse, caramel, dark berry notes, vanilla.
Taste comprises rich dark fruits, spice, bitter notes, light balsam, boozey tones, toffee.

Decent offering, quite tarte in places for a barley wine but never gets sweet and cloying as some do.
