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

stumpyiliz (217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Hazy amber pour with a fast dissipating head. Very low carbonation on the palate. The inital taste is sweet fruits like peaches, pears and then rolls into a toffee finish with a sweetness on the tongue.

murzyn (120) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 12, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2017 Barwa ciemnej miedzi. Piany nie ma. Aromat to atak skondensowanych suszonych owocw - daktyle, rodzynki, śliwki, jabłka. W smaku słd, karmel, owoce w postaci słodkiego suszonego kompotu. W drugim planie owoce tropikalne połączone z żywicznością. Brak alko w smaku. Goryczka mega delikatna jakby ziołowo. Bardzo dojrzałe pifko.

bjorn77 (116) - Krakw, POLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Miedziane, oleiste, nieprzejrzyste, bez piany. Słodki aromat karmelkowaty i biszkoptowy. W smaku bardzo słodkie, są karmelki, cukierki, słodkie owoce. Lekka likierowa chmielowa kontra trochę rwnoważy słodycz. W pierwszej chwili trochę mdłe, dopiero po chwili posmak w ustach staje się przyjemny. Aksamitne, gładkie i deserowe. Dobre

Bottle, bottled on 2016, July 20th; exp date - 2041-07-20. Poured into Teku. Aroma: toffee, nuts, almonds. A hint of honey maybe. Pours orange to red brown with medium to minimal very fast reducing head. Very muddy, unclear. Taste: figs, raisins, honey, vanilla, nuts. Very heavy on sweetness, rather medium bitterness. Very full bodied, 30 BLG detectable easily. Oily, creamy and sticky. Flat carbonation. Long, very sweet finish. This is one of the best non barrel-aged barley wines Ive drank bar none.
