3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como; batch A, bb 12/2017
Cloudy red-brown color with generous head, and nice perlage; the bottle was slowly gushing. Aroma of caramel, soap, rubber. Malt and caramel flavor, full bodied, with a round but overcarbonated mouthfeel; there are hints of nuts, vanilla, candi sugar, rubber; correct bitterness, with a touch of sweet liquorice in the final, very light yeast, and warming alcohol; the final is a bit dusty too.
The Belgian character is quite true; it doesn’t fly though, it still needs to be refined.
(note: despite being self-defined Barley Wine, it’s a Quadruppel by taste)
