COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barley wine equilibrio e raffinato, maturato in acciaio e successivamente invecchiato in bottiglia. Di color ramato intenso con riflessi rossi, al naso é ricco e complesso, spirigiona profumi di confettura e cigliege sotto spirito. In bocca é caldo, di gran corpo e con gasatura lieve.
Dedicato a chi ancora si emoziona per una scoperta, chi si innamora dinanzi al disvelarsi delle cose.

omhper (25246) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2012
Bottled, thanks rlgk! Hazy amber, small head. Peppery caramel aroma. Sweet, really full bodied. Fudge, rosemary and salt. Soothing caramel wanes the peppery alcohol heat that comes together with honey. Mid bitter finish.

Leighton (21477) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2011
Bottle at ACBF 2011. Pours ruby-brown with a faint head. Just some slight bubbles, gents. Lots of toffee in the nose, some other sweet bready malts. Pretty sweet flavor with hints of cured meats, candied fruits, mild bitterness. Full bodied with high carbonation. Warming finish, very sweet, malty, some meat and toffee, pure sugar, some toast. Rich, enjoyable brew.

fiulijn (20604) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle from Vinspecialisten, Randers; bb 2019, batch L 349 09, 3 years old
Beautiful dark amber color, with red reflex; undercarbonated, with a collar of creamy foam. Deep aroma of malt and fudge, with light raspberry syrup, and vanilla. Full bodied, with round mouthfeel and expected low carbonation; it has a sticky malt flavor, sweet, with an evident and unexpected raspberry syrup presence; correct bitterness, although a bit woody in the end.
Quite strange beer. The aroma is nice and complex, the flavor is a bit cloying.

Koelschtrinker (20591) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Zuckriger Malzantrunk mit einm schnell aufkommenden brennenden Alkoholton. Wenig herb, etwas bittere Kräuternoten, ein wenig bananenhefig. Harmonisch, rund, etwas holzig. /10/9/10//10

Theydon_Bois (19718) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle at home, from Domus Birrae, 05/05/13. Clear chestnut brown with no head, quite a few floaters/sediment on show. Not a looker by any means! The final third of the pour results in a heavily hazed beer. Nose is dark toffee, wood notes, dark fruits, prunes, dates, brown sugars, touch of booze. Taste comprises rich dark fruits, brown sugars, dark toffee, good dose of booze, light toasted nuts, dates. Full bodied, moderate to light carbonation, boozey warming finish. Overall a decent enough BW - boozey but fairly well tempered for 12% and not overly harsh.
