Riserva 2004 Teo Musso 13% abv .... Cloudy amber pour with no carbonation and no head .... Aroma of sweet fruits, caramel malts, almost wine like and dark fruits with almonds and a slight abv in there too .. Taste is sweet and of caramel malts, sweet dried dark fruits and a slight nutty almond flavor ... No trace of abv .... Has a lingering sweetness and an overall syrupy feel to it think port wine ... 10 years old and tasty but nothing crazy here. Like a sweet wine

2009 vintage released in 2013. Deep ruby color flat carbonation. Aroma is big alcohol with port wine, oak barrel and thick syrupy dark fruit.
Flavor is crazy. The depth of flavor is unreal. Honey, sherry, fruity esters of raisin, dates and figs. Light hints of barley and the oxidized just long enough. I like my barely wine at least 2 years old, maybe I need to hold them longer because this is insanely smooth. Yet not many breweries hold their barley wine in oak for two years. Full body with a sweet character without being cloying. This is way beyond anything I that I’ve had in the style. This is 14 % and I don’t taste any alcohol, unreal!

Med ölföreningen julen 2013. Smak och doft romrussin, kontaktlim, likör, vanilj, madeira, fatkaraktär och marsipan. Oljig, rund, len men alldeles för sötsliskig vilket drar ner den intensiva smakupplevelsen.

Draft at Eataly. Part of a flight. Red brown color. Carmel color. Carmel taste. Has an offensive smell like rotten plums. Taste was surprisingly good. Carmel candy sweet warm. Enjoyable but not too much of it please.
