750ml bottle -

A new beer found at BevMo, and while its a bit on the pricey side its a really nice beer. Aroma is squarely set on a sweet/malty profile. I got a nice helping of vanilla/brown sugar/caramel chews. Flavor has more of the fat, chewy/sweet malts. Slightly spicy. After about mid-pint some overripe fruit come out. Clearly a sweet beer, but its enjoyable. But then again I love sweet beers.

> A caramel syrup and toffee forward barleywine

[ Keg ][ Aruffos Italian Claremont CA ][ 16oz ][ $8 ][ Conical Pint ][ 5/11/14 ]
>> Pours hazy deep brown orange, odd color, bigger cream colored dense foam, okay lacing. Nose is fresh lemon, no off character, light flowers. No mustiness or dark fruits to hint at BSA. Taste is heavy caramel syrup, alcohol, sugar. Finishes a bit soapy, white alcohol, some dessert thickness. Very interesting, almost a barleywine, tons of toffee. Drinkable, hides the abv well.

>!< no Belgian yeast; dont serve a 8.2% beer in a pint glass

mice (868) - FINLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Kirkas kuparinvrinen olut melko pienell ja nopeasti katoavalla vaahdolla. Tuoksu karamellisen makea, hieman alkoholinen, lisksi siit lytyy omenaa, sitrusta ja ehk liev aniksisuutta. Maku toffeinen, hedelminen, varsinkin omenainen ja loppupuoleltaan kevyesti kuivattavan humaloitu. Alkoholi tuntuu hieman lmmittvn yleisilmeen, suutuntuma keskitytelinen ja ehk liev vetisyys vaivaa. Barleywineminen makea ja omenainen kokonaisuus toimii joiltain osin, mutta hieman viel hakee uomiaan. Parhaita maistamiani italialaisia toki.

CanCrusher (1022) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle 0,33L. Hazy amber colour with medium big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is mixture of malty and hoppy substances, like caramel, cookies, vanilla, lemony citruses, orange, etc. Taste is moderate bitter with strong spicy and hoppy note. Light to medium body, watery texture and soft carbonation makes it refreshing and easy drinkable, despite the high alcohol content.

ORO DI MILANO BROWN AMBER ALE. Bottled 0,33L. Dark aber color, deepest and hazy aspect with no bubbly and short head duration. Caramel and roast cortex aroma. Very smooth and solid body, power and unbalnced alcoholic perception.

monk191 (1881) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2014
A very unique beer, can't really put a style on it. Pours. Light red with a thick white head. Smells a bit like cider, with apple and pear. Taste is like creamy cider. Starts thick, with lots of apple, and ends with a sweet cider. Had in the bottle.
