Alengrin (5629) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
Barley wine matured on Malaga Moscatel barrels, with creamy, yellowish white, surprisingly stable head and hazy bronze colour. Utmost complex aroma with so many things going on: chocolate, grapes, kahlua, sage, oak, caramel, bitter honey, candi syrup, banana liqueur, cake, with everything in perfect balance. Fruity and citrussy onset, dryish with slick, vinous mouthfeel, caramel and honey, deeply malty, aromatic spicy hops in the finish with a woody accent and very agreeable, cognac-like warming alcohol. Complexity is one thing, managing to get all those flavours blend with each other is another. Alvinne succeeded in doing just that, so that I have no other choice but to rank this among the best barley wines I ever tasted. And I love barley wines, so... 77ships (10771) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2013

At BBF. Copper colour. Dark fruits and caramel aromas. Sweet and malty taste, a little alcoholish. Good barleywine.

Hazy deep amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth, slightly soft and a little viscous. Semi dry. A little toffee and malt cream. A little dried fruits and a touches of spice and wood. Mellow sweet sherry and dessert wine. Semi dry finish. Pretty drinkable.
(backlog ZBF 04/2013) from the DSB/Alv. tap train. An amber sour clocking in at 13%, a worthy closer for Day1. Morbidly sweet plum and rotten peach made interesting by a suave velvet yeast, producing gorgeous rich lateral esters and practically no burn whatsoever. Impressive taste implosion in a category not quite my style.
