COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Theres plenty of fruit like orange, tangerine and sweet apples. Its powerful and full bodied but still easy going. Although the name would suggest otherwise, its our favourite amongst the female clientele yet also highly appreciated by the other sex. Well hopped as always, but the obvious alcohol and the massive malt and fruit character restrict the hops to the background, only to reveal itself in the finish. Full bodied, notes of champagne. Champagne mousse after pouring in the glass. Grapes and a hint of mandarin curacao in the aroma, together with a hint of vin mousseux. Malty sweet flavor, immensely full bodied, with mandarine curacao and vinous notes. Thick mouthfeel, just a touch of yeast in the aftertaste. Huge beer. ABV on the label reduced from 15 to 11.9%. Recipe remains the same

[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Medium, sweet and soft aroma with molasses, apricot and some plum. Deep red color with medium frothy light beige head. Slightly hazy liquid. Strong balanced taste with plum, molasses, some resin and sweet malts . Wide taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with hoppy malts and some sweet fruits. Strong and soft body with light/medium carbonation. Overall, very tasty and high quality product with American style sweetness. Could have more malty flavors.

Mout en vineuze neus; deze elementen zetten zich door in de smaak. Mandarijn, hazelnoot, licht houterige port. Weinig koolzuur. Vol mondgevoel en in de afdronk toevoeging van hop.

jedrol (42) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle Appearance: very small head, dark brown, clear Aroma: quite complex: figs, nuts, dried fruits, sweet, some grain notes in the background. I could also smell something like cadies with liquor. Taste: also rich, dried fruits, figs, nuts, sweet, some dried, sweet date fruit, then some bitterness and very sweet finish All in all, alcohol is concealed well, however one is able to feel soft warming while dinging. The mouth feel is really nice; the beer is nicely thick.

Derbeth (814) - Krakw, POLAND - JAN 18, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2017 On tap. Dark ruby colour, small head. Aroma is sweets, toffee, resiny hops, white bread, malt. Alcohol does not disturb. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Soft carbonation, fortunately not cloying. Good one, not overhopped, but I wouldn?t say it?s exceptional.

Kran w Carpe Kraft. Barwa herbaciana, delikatnie opalizujące. Przepiękny aromat, bardzo słodki, toffi, ciemne pieczywo, suszone owoce, krwki. W smaku jest podobnie, jest bardzo słodowo, ale w dobrym znaczeniu tego słowa. Niskie wysycenie, niezła goryczka. Pyszne piwo.

W aromacie słodowe, chlebowe, przyprawowe. W wyglądzie ciemny bursztyn, praktycznie bez piany. W smaku ciemny chleb, przyprawy, karmel, tytoń, dużo ził, słodkie, bardzo przyjemne. Ciało gęste, konkretne, niskie wysycenie, degustacyjne. Bardzo smaczny barley wine w angielskim stylu do powolnego, przyjemnego sączenia.

imperial_suchy (123) - Rybnik, POLAND - DEC 23, 2016
Piwo koloru ciemnej miedzi, praktycznie bez piany. Pachnie czerwoną porzeczką, karmelem, suszonymi owocami, od razu po przelaniu były rwnież obecne nuty drewna i skry. W smaku bardzo słodkie, chociaż przebija się nieśmiało ziołowa goryczka. Wyczuwalny intensywny smak karmelu i suszonych owocw, jest też delikatny posmak drewna i skry. Piwo ma niskie wysycenie, jest bardzo treściwe i złożone, alkohol niewyczuwalny. Bardzo dobry barley wine.
