Mortlach (2532) - Rome, - JUN 15, 2013
03/01/2013 330ml bottle (Vintage 2010). Bruna, intensa, riflessi color caffé, schiuma leggera beige, non molto persistente. Naso esplosivo, sentori di datteri e frutta matura, alcol, nocino, vaniglia, anche una nota acidula. In bocca è se possibile ancora più complessa, simile a un Porto, con sentori di frutta matura, caramello, cioccolato, erbe medicinali, un leggero tocco di liquirizia, una leggera astringenza. Corpo pieno, carbonazione leggera. Barley Wine sontuoso!


4.1
mariuspoenari (3179) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2018
Dark brown caramel-ruby pour with no heah. Notes of caramel, brett bitterness, brett funk, champagne yeast, cherry cores. The alcohol is almost non-perceptible, feels more like 6%. Damn good!

karpik (1504) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - DEC 19, 2017
Caramel, dried fruits, funky notes, leather in nose. Pours brown with poor white head. Taste is sweet and moderate sour. Flavours of caramel, figs, raisins, and prunes are good barley wine base. On the other pole are funky flavours which are a counterbalance to malty sweetness. Low bitter finish, flat carbonation, oily texture. Perfectly hidden alcohol. Overall probably these bretts were not intentional here but I like this composition.

tomekboniek (932) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 29, 2017
Butelka. Winne nuty, skórzane. Profil w kierunku pół wytrawnym. Niezła ciekawostka. Alkohol genialnie ukryty.

sebletitje (10477) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2017
Bottle sample @ Osteria Del Borgo, Roma, courtesy of the bar manager. Brune sur ambre, pas de col. Arôme de funk, levure sauvage avec petit côté champenois, rétro de réglisse, caramel, brett? + léger côté fruits noirs. Palais de levure champenoise tirant sur un léger funk et petite sécheresse. Malt caramel, qcq éléments aigre fruité noir, barrique et boisé rappelant un peu l'effet de BA en fût de Chardonnay. Approche un peu unique sur un barley wine. Reste plaisant et complexe.

jrh2254 (191) - burton-on-trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2017
From a beer hawk mystery case. Pours deep golden with a quarter inch head that stays until the bottom of the glass. Lovely mild hop fresh malt aroma. Very quaffable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (9751) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017
Grainy sweetish nose. The beer starts sweetish and intense. Malty caramel, plums, cherries. Sweetish aftertaste with a nice caramel fruity sweetish finish.

Bottle shared with Erzengel! A hazy orange brown beer. Aroma of dark riped fruits, wood, bourbon. Taste of dark riped fruits, red fruits, grapes, wood, some vinegar.

Mariox (393) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 1, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2017 W aromacie czerwone wino, czerwone owoce. W smaku lekko kwaśne, delikatnie słodkie. Przypomina bardzo red flandersa. Całkiem ok, ale czegoś zabrakło. Poza tym smaczny barley wine.
