COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dies Iræ ist ein extremes Starkbier (Barley Wine), handwerklich gebraut im Brauhaus Gusswerk in Salzburg. Seine Zutaten: Österreichische Bio-Spezialmalze, Summit- und Cascade-Bio-Hopfen aus dem Yakima-Valley in den USA und eine doppelte Gärführung aus Unter- und Obergäriger Spezialbierhefe. Fruchtig im Antrunk, unterlegt von feinen Bittermandeln kommt der Genuss gewaltig auf die Zunge. Töne von Grapefruit mischen sich harmonisch in den elegant-kräftigen Körper. Genießen Sie Dies Iræ als Aperitif oder Digestif, am besten bei ca. 12°C und aus dem Weinglas. Es eignet sich aber auch bestens zur weiteren Lagerung und geschmacklichen Reifung im Bockbierkeller. Sie werden überrascht sein, wie sich Dies Iræ im Laufe der Zeit entwickeln kann!

PowY (1043) - AUSTRIA - MAY 21, 2017
From bottle. Pours a very hazy mahogany with an off-white head. Intense aroma of sweet malts, fruity with overripe apples and pears, marzipan, honey, brown sugar, molasses, smoke, wood and some alcohol. Full oily body with a very low carbonation, a medium sweetness and a light to medium bitterness, again with some noticeable alcoholic notes. Full malty flavor: dried fruits, caramel, brown sugar, hints of cocoa and licorice and again faint woody notes, vanilla. Excellent complex beer.

DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at Lior D’s place. Thanks zvsn. Hazy deep reddish amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, cookies, fruitiness. Sweet flavor with malt, caramel, fruitiness, light sourish note, cookie note, and a faint bitterish note. Medium-bodied, rounded. Good, alcohol is well-concealed.

3.2
Idiosynkrasie (7970) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
500ml bottle. Opaque, darkest brown colour with thin bubbly, beige layer. Malty aroma, notes of chocolate sauce, nuts, nougat, marzipan, some treacle, bitter fruity interludes of orange zest and grapefruit. Taste is minimally alcoholic, sweet malty, slightly bitter, notes of almond, marzipan, hints of red berry jam, some milk chocolate, treacle; viscous texture, smooth and soft palate. Harmonious, balanced, rich and manifold - but I’ve simply no need for this kind of beer.

massingasetta (781) - München, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2016
There is probably an initiation process whether you are an all-round beer taster in which you need to drink one of these are not show signs of cringing. I do appreciate the Barley Wine taste - it beams me back to the middle ages, where this beer was drank after swordsplay. Independent of this, this beer is just too strong and heavy. The learning process to getting a grip of such a beer is not here yet - sry.
