Style et rsum: Barley wine en ft de bourbon, trop bourbon.
Comment: Petite bouteille avec bouchon de lige partage.
Description: Une robe brune avec une mousse beige. Un nez de whiskey, de bois, avec un caramel brl, tire ponge et vanille. La bouche est moins intressante que le nez, mince en attaque mais ronde et liquoreuse en finale. Pas dalcool perceptible. Ordinaire et dcevante.
Note: 7/10

Gros splash de bourbon et de bois vert ds le dpart mais heureusement que les dmangeaisons grasses des malts et la vanille et les dattes et les fruits secs et les pices arrivent comme un baume sur une plaie qui saigne peu. Dommage cependant que le caramel, la mlasse et le chocolat sont si imbibs par leau-de-vie amricaine une fois la premire gorge avale et digre. Les suivantes ne sont pas catastrophiques mais ne sont gure mieux. Boire une bire qui gote trop le bourbon cest comme boire un bourbon qui gote trop la bire. En bouche, le corps apparat mince malgr cette texture semi-liquoreuse qui flatte mes papilles. En finale, bonne dose dalcool brun bois.

Bottle thanks to Greg. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roast, vanilla, wood and whiskey. The taste was similar to the aroma with more sweet roasted malts, oak, vanilla and some booziness. Really good.

375 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. 2013 vintage. The pour is a light black. Its really dark with a thin collar of light khaki colored head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is great. Lots of caramel malt and vanilla with a molasses and lovely bourbon barrel character. Light chocolate and good sweet molasses. This is going to be good. Its got a hint of booze as well. The flavor is great. There is a beautiful chocolate and molasses up front and a deep caramel malt and sweet vanilla that blends well with the bourbon barrel on the finish. The mouth feel is a little thin, but the carbonation is in point and the aftertaste is beautiful. Lingeringly sweet chocolate and caramel and molasses. This is great. Hot damn.

Zlotta (2612) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2016
2000th rating: 0.375 l bottle from Bierkompass, bottled in 2014. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige layer. Sweetish-malty, very inviting aroma of bourbon, raisins, vanilla, prunes, figs, caramel and a bit of oak. Quite sweet, malty and slightly alcoholic taste of lots of bourbon, caramel, dark honey, vanilla, raisins, prunes and figs, followed by a long, slightly bitter, moderately warming-alcoholic, minimally oaky finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily and only a little effervescent mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Very complex, intense and perfectly balanced. Although the bourbon is very prominent, it fits in so well and accompanies the heavy base beer in a fantastic way. Huge beer!

Butelka. Oszałamiający aromat. Jest wanilia, karmel ktre razem tworzą bardziej aromat deseru niż piwa, trochę kojarzący mi się z ptasim mleczkiem toffee zalanym bourbonem. Z czasem dochodzą suszone owoce na czele z rodzynkami, choć da się też wyczuć wiśnie. Smak jest srednio słodki, mocno karmelowy, ale bardziej w typie toffee niż palonego cukru. Ogrom rodzynek, wiśni, śliwki, melasy, bourbonu. Wszystko fajnie zbudowane i zbalansowane, bez chaosu. W posmaku dochodzą nuty szlachetnego alkoholu ktre miło palą w gardło, dając znać o tym, że nie jest to lekkie piwerko i swoją wagę posiada. Ciało pełne, faktura oleista i zalepiająca, niskie do średniego wysycenie. Myślę że idealnie to piwo pasowało by do dobrego tytoniu w fajce. Mała butelka dla jednej osoby, to przynajmniej godzina świetnej przygody piwnej. Wybitna rzecz.

AdolfoCC (225) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - AUG 4, 2016
Servida en un Spiegelau Tulip. APARIENCIA: de color marrn intenso casi negro, con algunos destellos ms claros y cafs a contraluz; corona de espuma color beige de baja retencin, de burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas. AROMA: bourbon, bourbon, bourbon y ms bourbon, coco tostado, vainilla, algo de madera, caramelo, toffee, algunos frutos oscuros maduros ligeramente. SABOR: al inicio del trago se siente dulce y presencia del alcohol, seguido del bourbon dominante nuevamente pero no tanto como en aroma, madera, vainilla y coco tostado se aprecian de manera marcada, inclusive en algunos tragos destaca muchsimo ms esa nota a coco tostado; notas a caramelo, toffee, frutos oscuros maduros como higos y pasas tambin presentes. En el retrogusto queda un amargor medio, dulce y con persistencia ligera de las caractersticas de la barrica. SENSACIN: cuerpo medio ligero, baja carbonatacin. Se siente el alcohol en boca y garganta de forma muy clida. Resumen: un excelente barleywine con carcter marcado de la barrica.
