3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A beautiful, red beer with a medium and blond head. The nose has fruits, sweetness of strawberries, herbs and some alcohol. Taste has berries and herbs. Alcohol in the end and it’s warming the throat. Full bodied, not too heavy. Berry, too simple and booze.

Bottle from tderoeck. Thanks Tim - Hazy brown colour. Aroma is heavy on bread dough and yeast. Also very malty with some woody dryness. Texture is smooth. It’s sweet and has a deep, complex maltiness. Some caramel and brown sugar sweetness and dried sweet dark fruits too.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Barleywine che riempie il palato con note dolci di frutta matura e tropicale. Abv ben nascosto ma per il corpo pieno e la complessità diventa difficile berne un’altra.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours deep amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of toasted caramel, chocolate, brown sugar, citrus notes and raisins. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with an alcohol bite. Medium to full bodied, oily to creamy texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Barley.
