Lovely sharp sweet aroma, not so bretty, but another wild component’s got its teeth into this. Beautiful dark orange, and a small ring of bubbles. First taste is sweet and peachy, but very quickly it turns into pure apricot. Beautiful attenuation, not too sweet. Love the apricot finish. Anna gets walnut, I find that odd, as I would normally home in on that kind of component. Superb barley wine.
Light beige medium head, clear crimson in colour. Caramel, dried fruit and roastiness on the nose. Thick mouthfeel, soursweet, notes of toffee, pine, dried fruit and cellar. Finishes warm and a bit sweet. Interesting. Vells (1980) - Rīga, LATVIA - JAN 17, 2015
Huge beer! Intense maltiness, lovely caramel combined with bit acidic fruitiness, dark fruits, raisins, dried fruits, light wood, cant feel much of the hops, but thats not needed here. Lovely syrupy. Moderate sweetness with moderate to light sourness and light bitterness Melnis (526) - LATVIA - JAN 12, 2015
