Alengrin (4814) - BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2017
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!

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.
