laiti (8217) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2017
65 cl bottle @ RIP Laru camp.
Aroma has sweet malt, resin and fruits. Feels somewhat heavy. Flavour has woody tones, resiny malt, biscuits, grapefruity hops and some mild herbal tones. Also minerals and menthol in the finish. Rather typical American BW perhaps a bit on the dry side after all.

czar (8547) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2016
bottle at lautre oeil, aylmer. pours hazy/cloudy medium dark brown, orange red tint, with a nice reviving beige head offering good retention and lacing. creamy chocolate, dense opulent caramelized brown maltiness, some toasted toffee notes, fairly woody/woodsy, drying earthy character, english yeast. moderately low carbonation, medium body - very oily; barely sweet, rather balanced woodsy finish. a rather (relatively) dry earthy barleywine with a nice and complex malt bill. enjoyable.
