Mnie nie powala - mokre drzewne aromaty połączone ze słodyczą typową dla BW, przeplatane gdzieś tam w tle z wytrawnością i lekką kwaskowatością. Na pewno inne i oryginalne, ale mnie takie połączenie nie podchodzi.

On tap at Open Baladin, Rome. Pours dark brown with small beige head. Coffee and roasted malts, caramel, dried fruit, licorice, wood. Bit sourish vinous. Sweet. Warming and complex. Full bodied.

Disig brun öl med ett mycket lätt beige skum. Doften är vinös och kryddig med inslag av trä och läder. I smaken tillkommer russin och karamell.

Flaska. Dimmigt mörkbrun med ett litet smutsvitt skum. Dofter av rödvin, läder, karamell, russin och sura bär. Smakinslag av läder, trä, rödvin och torkad frukt. Medelstor kropp. Alkoholen väl dold i smaken. Mjuk munkänsla.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2016 On tap @Open Baladin (Rome) Barley wine molto complessa grazie anche alla maturazione in botte, con un finale giustamente alcolico. Bassa carbonazione. Colore scuro e un po opaco, che ricorda un bicchiere di vino rosso.

Wonderful. I love this one. No carbonation at all, which feels a bit strange since I’m not used to it. But the taste compensates. A whole lot of dried fruits, plums, raisins. A bit of a sour taste but not overpowering. The sweetness and alcoholic feel from Barley Wine is still very much present, and the champagne yeast add another dimension that I can’t quite describe. A long, warming, almost dry finish. Reminds me a lot of Samuel Adams Utopias - but for a much better price!

Bottle from K&L. Pours dark murky mahogany, flat, no head or lacing. Aroma is roasty, hints of tart red grapes, vinous, dark fruits, raisins, plums, hints of Brett. Flavor is fairly sweet, lightly bitter, hugely vinous, dark fruits and some dark sugars abound. Fruitcake. Medium body, soft rich mouthfeel, no carbonation.

1st Edition in Rome. Thanks Mortlach! Light root beer brown, mostly clear. A few soapy bubbles, wax, earthy resin. Flat stale root beer. A little thin, completely oxidized. A little vanilla, body is a disappointment. Touch molasses, fizzy. A miss due to age.

Kolsvart utan något skum. 0 kolsyra... Doftar och smakar russin, körsbär, ek, portvin och något syrlig/sur. Ingen barley wine.. kolsyra hade höjt den..
