Tanker tap-takeover @ Beerfox Artisanal Beer Bar, Riga, September 29th. Pours nice creamy and dark orange, cloudy and not too much foam there. Nose is sweet, lots of sugary figs, some grassy hops, orange marmalade. This barleywine has had some time to get into terms with itself and I feel that it has gotten quite mellow and more rounded. Taste is bringing that out quite clearly, marmelade-sweet, grassy-hoppy, American style barleywine that is also well-rounded and where this 12% alcohol is hidden supremely well. Drinks just too smooth, manipulates with your taste sensors and is clearly dangerous! Alusmamuts (2620) - LATVIA - SEP 29, 2017
Dark amber / reddish with small white head. Sweet aroma with bread notes. Malty / bread sweetness balanced by touch of sourness and followed by quite strong bitterness. Cuso (9363) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 20, 2017

Beerfest, Tampere, Finland. Messy and unbalanced with nuances of plum, barley malt and dark berries. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with malts and some fruits. Somewhat juicy feeling although strong/medium body and medium/low carbonation. Overall, quite lofi barley wine with a pungent taste though.
Tap at Tullifest. Dark amber colour, small steady beige head. Glueish, sweet toffee aroma with hops. Medium-bodied to full-bodied. Some toffee, wood, hops, maltyness, even some tartness. Dry, not Barley Wine I like. japppp (264) - FINLAND - AUG 19, 2017
