Belgian barleywine style ale. Our The Oracle was thought as point of meeting between english barleywines and belgian quadrupel, it’s fermented with Trappist yeast.

Hopmaestro (1197) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2015
Aroma is rich from dark fruits, figs, syrup and candy sugar. There is some monastery cellar stuff going on as well in this one, damp and moist with some wooden notes. Taste is sweet and dark. Prunes and figs run around for a while with some mellow hops chase them and try to catch ’em. Spicy bitterness and some alcohol warmth.

ThreeCats (802) - ISRAEL - AUG 7, 2015
Almost black with ruby highlights and a mocha head. Aroma has lots of coffee and roast with a touch of dark fruit. Taste roasty and dry, with an underlying dark fruit current. This tastes surprisingly light for a 10.7% barley wine. I’m not sure where the "Belgian" part of this beer comes in, as it displays none if the (annoying) Belgian yeast characteristics. This is like the love child of a barley wine and a stout. And my what sweet sweet loving it is...

ansalon (2767) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2015
Pours a deep clear amber with a medium large foamy tan colored head. Head retention is quite good, does not dissipate too quickly. Lots of marinated fruit and berries in the aroma: dates, ripe apple, peach, slight ripe banana along with rasins, prunes and molasses. Also hints of cherries and almonds. Taste follows suit with that same marinated fruit thing going on along with nuts, molasses, and some deep umami notes as well. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky and oily with moderate carbonation. Quite well balanced.
