COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of fruit like orange, tangerine and sweet apples. It’s powerful and full bodied but still easy going. Although the name would suggest otherwise, it’s 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

LukaszK (68) - Wrocław, POLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Próbowane z beczki (4Hops, Wrocław) oraz z butelki 0,33l (Drink Hala). Ocenię wersję z 4Hops, jako bardziej intensywną, lepszą. Barwa olejowanego drewna bukowego, nalane z pianą; nalewane z butelki również daje krótką, nietrwałą pianę w postaci cienkiego kożucha. W aromatach słodkie owoce, syrop cukrowy, owoc granata, jezyny, herbata, miód. W smaku potężna słodycz, wspaniale zrównoważona alkoholem. Konstystencja piwa z butelki jest nieco rzadsza, niż lanego z kranu - beczkowa wersja zdecydowanie bardziej wykleja słodyczą, jest bardziej oleista i treściwa. Smak powiela aromaty niemal 1:1, piwo jest bardzo gładkie, ułożone, gęste, treściwe i niesamowicie smaczne i pijalne. Ciężko powiedzieć, czy to jest jeszcze barley wine, czy może coś lepszego. Niezbyt drogie, dopracowane, intensywne w smaku i aromacie. Petarda!

sailor_one (34) - Krakow, POLAND - FEB 11, 2017
33cl bottle. Lovely BW. A ton of raisins and dry plums in both taste and aroma. Bread, honey, nuts, slightly roasty. Thick and very oily, almost no head. Absolutely fantastic and warming.

Fules (1227) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - FEB 2, 2017
Semmi hab, félbarna szín. Édeskés, karamelles, gabonás illat. Édes, malátás, gyümölcsös-szőlős, mandarinos ízvilág, enyhe alkoholos melegséggel, a háttérben némi komlós fűszerességgel. Testes, enyhén szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Kiváló gazdag ízvilágú, jól kiegyensúlyozott sör.

Barley wine w najlepszym wydaniu. Aromat zlozony, slodowy. Wyglad, barwa miedziana. Alkohol niewyczuwalny - dobrze ulozony

Turboninja (710) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2017
[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.

Ambrata carica, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma beige di media persistenza. Aroma di frutta oltre maturazione, principalmente prugna, note di nocciola fresca, lievissimo erbaceo, arancia candita. Al palato prugna secca, toffee e caramello, secondariamente arancia candita, finale caramellato ed etilico con una nota vegetale. Corpo pieno, poco carbonata.

jedrol (79) - 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.

Aromat suszonych owoców, fig, toffi, cukierków, karmelu, słodu, troszeczkę chleba. W smaku figi, toffi, przełamane suszonymi owocami, z bardzo fajną kontrą goryczkową w postaci przypalonego karmelu, gęste, sycące. Świetnie się pije
