A fantasy of a beer style, although it is not one of my favorites. I am accustomed to heavier beers with water. Is the only thing I missed. Maybe it needs a little contindncia. But it is a good beer.

PlasticSoul (102) - - MAR 5, 2017
33 cl. bottle (bought from Birrificio Indipendente Elav, Bergamo Airport). It is deep amber/light copper coloured with minimal off-white head. Its aroma is nice but weak: caramel, citrus, honey, herbal notes. I really liked the taste: well-balanced -- bittersweet with some lingering sourness. It is medium-bodied and creamy-textured with an average carbonation. Finish is quite bitter and a bit tiring. A good beer but not outstanding.

erickok (5924) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2016
Glowing light copper, nice head. Heavy but somewhat odd aroma. Like the sharp malty taste, heavy bitters. But the aroma is a bit dimmed for the abv. My style of beer and yes I enjoyed drinking this. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bire)

Billynomates solo hotel tasting. Hazy gold - amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and slightly soft. Modest fine carbonation. Sweetish malts, dry. Good Sorachi floral lemon cream. Very mild herb. Semi dry finish shows some spice. Nice beer but its more of a Sorachi IIPA than a Barleywine.

zenkis (834) - Ogre, LATVIA - AUG 30, 2016
Arigato sievai, pārmērīgi eiro lidostā par neko- salds, drusku uz medaina pusi, stipri iesalains, tai pat laikā milzīgi nekāds- ne kompleksuma, ne balansa. Atgādināja neizrūguu misu, apiņu ne nāsī, ne mēlē. Nenobriedis alus, mprāt. улетай на крыльях ветра - jebu vīle sirdī. dzintars- iesals, saldums, apeņ aizmirsās mis Latvija - duļķains nedaudz, tums aistum, baleta svārki minimāli zupa- salda, monotona, iesal/misaina iemutis- pilns, mazpirsts, skābenes pēcgarā nav,

Robe jaune orange, pas de carbo petit collet pas mal de matiere... Aromes citronnee, epices, abricots Bien rond en bouche mais avec une amertume citronne qui casse un peu cette impression liquoreuse. Fruit en finale

Marduk (7474) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 15, 2016
330ml bottle. Hazy deep amber color. Small size, yellowish off-white head, stays as a ring. Sweet, papery, honey, berries, faint raspberry in aroma. Roasted malts, raisins, sweet, some hard candy, faint lemon peel in taste. Damn this drink is sweet. Sweet and raisins in aftertaste. Obviously alcohol is covered by this massive sweetness.
