alteregoo (1349) - Kalisz, POLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Piany praktycznie brak. Barwa miedziana, opalizująca. W aromacie delikatne nuty czerwonego wina, suszonej żurawiny, fig, karmelu, miodu spadziowego, tytoniu... Smak podobny, płsłodkie, poza tym co w zapachu jest trochę kandyzowanych owocw, jest lekka cierpkość migdałowa, jest wyraźna goryczka z cygarowym czy tytoniowym posmakiem na finiszu. Bardzo niskie wysycenie, oleiste, pełne w odbiorze, ładnie ukryty alkohol.
Generalnie bardzo podobne piwo do wersji bez cygar, aczkolwiek nutka tytoniu, nieco większa słodycz i goryczka delikatnie wzbogaciły to piwo...

Marduk (7504) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2017
330ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Murky brown color. Tiny size, bubbly white head, stays as a ring. Port wine, sweet, fruity, berries, candy in aroma. Tobacco, roast, dusty, woody, tannins, red wine in taste. Characterful. Woody and red wine in aftertaste. I quite like it.

Una bella versione della 10 e lode con affumicatura di sigaro che dona alla birra una intensa nota di tabacco. Interessante e dolce.

At La Tana. Very loosely structured head, quickly reduced to some loose, pale beige bubbles around the edge and eventually disappearing altogether; very deep, stunningly beautiful copper colour, translucent, with warm bronze hue. Strong bouquet of candied cherries, caramel, sweet sherry, marmelade, madera, ripe blue plums, candied figs, cognac, sweet tobacco somewhere, very faintly, but with a bit of imagination, bringing back memories of artisanal, sweet, northern Italian cigars I used to smoke during a trip to Venice a dozen years ago. Candied sweet onset, marmelade, dates, some deep and dim sourishness, a little tart even, thick and very vinous mouthfeel, low carbo, thick caramel sweet middle part with a toasted touch; woodiness appears in the finish, very elegantly so, in the form of vanilla-ish oak flavors and gently drying tannins, followed by a long, heating, peppery glow of cognac-like alcohol and a dash of spicy, deeply situated hops for structure; the cigar infusion effect that was so emphasized, remains as good as unnoticeable, though there is a vague hint of smokiness somewhere retronasally. That doesnt really matter though: this is clearly a high profile barleywine of typical Italian signature. The Italians have applied their know-how of wine to their young craft beer culture and especially in the barleywine style, this has lead to a string of impressive beverages; this one too is a great advertisement for what I am beginning to regard as the hotspot for barleywines in the craft beer world, la bella Italia. Very elegant and rich winter sipper.

Draft sample at Bir&Fud Roma, Italy. 17.12.2016. Ciaone Alberto. Pour it dark brown color with small head. Aroma lots of crazy spices, figs, yeasty. Taste sweet caramel, candy sugar, pinch woody and vanilla, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, sticky, average carbonation, long finish. Good!

KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from Domus Birrae, spent a few years in my cellar. Fruit, red wine, cinnamon. Glowing ruby, fluffy head. Very mellow, very pleasant, this is probably as good as it gets. A hint of grappa in the bacjground. Bay leaves, white pepper.

oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Bottled. Hazy amber colour with a small, but longlasting, creamy white head. Aroma is bready and quite sweet malts with some fruity and spicy notes. Also some nutty notes as well as some slight tobacco. Flavour is tobacco, sweet malts, mild toasted notes, some alcohol and mild yeastyness as well.
