7th Feb 2015: Brugge Beer Festival, poured from a 33cl bottle. I had been drinking with these guys the night before the festival, so I got a good amount in my glass: cheers. Slight haze to the brown body, the head a wispy beige affair. Very sweet and malty, a Barley Wine with extra maltiness and very little of anything else bar alcohol. I actually liked it, my sweet tooth coming into it’s own again. Warming and strong alcohol wise, a nice sipper in between the rushing around and drinking at pace because you are at a beer festival.

Lol.. how can 15 ABV taste so watery, thin bodied, yet not alcoholic? :D Toffee malty with some interesting note of heather, dried fruits, caramel, some weird hops, not too pushy alco kick. Syrupy, vinous. Definitely not bad, but not good as well.. Chewy sweet with some moldy bitterness. Decent drinkable brew for tick in ratebeer

330ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
Sickly sweet aroma, rough vegetal grassy components quite unpleasant. Sweet and alcoholic taste. Sickly, quite unpleasant. When I first put this horror in my mouth, my expression was something along the lines of speaking something half danish, half estonian o-tilda, basically a cringe on the face, and sometimes the tongue hanging out of the mouth. That describes the beer better than any words I can write.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange beer, small beige head. Nose is malt, touch of fruity sweetness. Flavor is a malty and sweet mess with toasty notes. Sticky mouthfeel. Warning booze. Off balance.

From Bieresgourmet. This is a massive red-copper barleywine with intense red and ripe fruits notes. Full of cascade hop but really sweet, seemed a 8% beer.
