250th Beer Rating! I've forgot to keep track of them but I gotta celebrate with a special beer.Mister_Li (1564) - GERMANY - JUL 18, 2017
1 finger beige head.
Almost black but really a super deep ruby red.
Aroma is burnt malts, raisins and other dried dark fruits and smokey wood.
Taste is chewy caramel, bread, dates, oak barrel, raisins and a hint of alcohol in a beautiful blend.
Mouthfeel is really smooth with a good initial kick. Medium bitterness. Medium carbonation, for the style. Thick and chewy.
Overall: This particular bottle is from 2016 and even in this short time it's matured beautifully. Really smooth and fully packed with flavours and dark notes. Excellent sweetness. Can't wait to try the "French Oak" version.

At a tasting, thanks, smallish creamy head, cloudy very red to brown color, aroma of dark bread, melange of dried fruits and just an oxidised note, sweet and sour fruty honey flavor with some metal. quite sweet but not too heavy. Nice and drinkable. matbli (473) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle vintage 2015 (9%), pours reddish-brown with high beige head.Aroma of caramel, raisins, dark fruits, dried plums. In taste mainly high sweetness with some very light cigarette ash in the finish. Medium bodied. Taste could be a bit more intensive but on the other hand it’s very good drinkable. Alcohol is slightly warming but not disturbing. All in all a quite expensive but still a good barley wine. zvsn (2302) - ISRAEL - JUN 19, 2017
