Citrusy aroma with some caramel in the background. Caramel is dominating the flavour with some american hops in the background. The finish is balanced between the bitternress and the sweetness.

Biroholik (1097) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Data ważności: 20. 07. 2018
Kolor: Miedziany, patrząc pod światło widać szereg rubinowych refleksw. Piwo jest klarowne.
Piana: Żłta, drobno pęcherzykowa, dość nietrwała. Początek był obiecujący, jednak piana opadła do wąskiej otoczki. Na ściankach Sniftera wzorowy lacing. Piana otacza większą powierzchnię szkła.
Zapach: Aromat jest umiarkowanie trwały. Na samym starcie do głosu dochodzą nuty słodkiego karmelu, dojrzałych owocw tropikalnych i odrobiny cukru trzcinowego. W tle nuty lasu, żywica z drzew iglastych i odrobina toffi.
Smak: W smaku pełne, wyklejające usta, słodkie. Generalnie profil piwa jest wyraźnie słodowy. Bazę stanowi konkretna karmelowa podbudowa wsparta o nuty toffi i cukru trzcinowego. Jest też cała masa soczystych, mocno dojrzałych owocw tropikowych: mango, papai. Goryczka piwa jest średnio intensywna. Lekki żywiczne posmaki pozostają w ustach do samego finiszu. Faktura jest oleista, gęsta. 11% alkoholu nie wpływa na degustacje.
Wysycenie: Średnie.
Podsumowanie:
Kolejny browar z JU ES EJ. Tym razem wybr padł na Clown Shoes z Ipswich, Massachusetts, USA. Jest tutaj wszystko co powinno być w ABW. W aromacie brakuje jedynie zdecydowanie intensywności. Smak natomiast broni się bardzo dobrze. Są nuty amerykańskiego chmielu (żywica, las), jest rwnież solidna karmelowa podbudowa, odrobina toffi i dużo mocno dojrzałych owocw tropikalnych. Tekstura piwa jest oleista, matowa. Goryczka wyraźna. Całkiem spox. Dobry przedstawiciel stylu.

koleminer20 (3069) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2017
From notes. Enjoyed at the 4th Annual Barleywine Tasting at Nicoles house on January 28. 22 oz bottle. The pour on this one is a little weird. Its a golden brown color with a thin white head that vanishes pretty quickly. The aroma is full of hops and light bitterness. Its got a little caramel malt, come light brown sugar and a hint of dark fruits. I just cant get passed the bitter hops. Its just not my thing. The flavor is a little better. The hops are still prevalent, but theyre a little reserved. The caramel malts and light chocolate begin to come through a bit more with the fruit, but its a little messy and sharp. The mouth feel is lighter and well carbonated with a lingeringly bitter hop finish. This is okay for an American bareywine, but not what Im looking for.

laakus (130) - Nossebro, - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle, best before 19/10/2018. Pours amber reddish, light brown foam. Nose is sweet malty, some toffee or nutty like tones and some hoppy aromas pushing through. Taste is sweet dried fruits like plums, some hints of toffee, not much bitterness and a very well hidden alcohol. After a while the hoppiness can be felt. Nice complexity! A great winter sipper this one!
