Pours dark copper with small head. Aroma is rich, sweet, with tropical fruit, toffee, floral notes. Beer has grown significantly in six months since purchase, now showing balanced, complex coconut, herbal, fruit, honey tones. Flavor opens as beer aerates, reminds me of a wine. Growth in bottle is remarkable, will be laying some down.

Draft @ Brassigaume 2012. My favourite beer of the festival. Hazy orange, bubbly white head. Smell is a sweet lovely concoction of caramel, sugar, syrup, prune jam, flowers, solid malt base, some very sweet strong liquor feel to it. Sweet caramel, malt base, light prune jam, sweet strong liquor, touch pine resin, tropical fruits, mango, creamy, caramel apples. Softer carb. light oozy body lovely.

Assaggiata alla spina al CAVALLINO ALATO di Asti. Buona birra. Profumo di malto e frolla al naso. Bella bocca, succulenta con una buona spinta etilica mai stucchevole con note dolci e tanta pasticceria. Il finale non e amarissimo e lascia la bocca asciutta.

Gran bella Birra. Apprezzo molto l insieme. Arancio ambrata, poca schiuma abbastanza fine e cremosa. Odore di caramello,biscotto al burro e frutta esotica. In bocca squisitamente dolce con biscottino, scorza di pane caramello, bilanciati da un finale secco e astringente, in cui emerge un po del luppolo adoperato e soprattutto la presenza alcolica, che non disturba mai ma anzi asciuga la bocca. Buonissima birra.

Draft @ Brassigaume 2012. By far, one of the most outstanding Italian beers that day which does not diminish the overall quality of all the beers present at Brassigaume. Orange lger trouble, col blanc lger. Arme donne un profile agrable de grains orge trs prenant quasi sur des notes rappelant lapple brandy malgr que cette bire nest pas ge en ft. Palais est sucr avec une note lourde mais agrable de pomme caramel trs frache, collant aux lvres, pas mal de houblons pour un palais rchauffant, beau profile de grains et une bire qui pour moi semble avoir le profile dun murissage en barrique. Amertume en retrait et contribuant un ct houblonn trs fruit frais rajoutant une belle dimension cette bire.

Bottle. Golden amber color with white and fine foam. Aroma: very good, dried fruit, honey, malt, raisins and sweet dessert muscat wine. Taste: sweet like candy and liqueur wine, raisins and candied fruit. Great beer.

Una birra splendida, importante, molta sostanza e un buon equilibrio tra luppoli e malti.

Hazy amber color; medium head. Nice aroma, malty and hoppy, a bit fruity, light wood and vanilla. Good malty flavor, full bodied, with nice sweetness, and pungent hopping, helped by some alcohol presence too.
Very good. Drink it fresh.

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. That lovely coconut smell of Sorachi Ace dominate the nose. Rich body, low carbonation, lots of caramel and exotic fruits - very complex. Rich alcoholic finish. Lovely - my first Sorachi Ace Barley Wine. 200612
