COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet Barley Wine. Captain’s Log: They say there are no smells in space, but the alluring scent of caramel, yellow fruits, and nuts came at us through the hull of the ship, pulling us into its sticky embrace. By one final effort we managed to pull away from the intoxicating enticement of Zaccharine. Zaccharine is also a barley wine of 8 % ABV, brewed with hops, malt, yeast and water, but you can call it Zach. Brewed and bottled in Denmark by Rocket Brewing Company.

mateuszk (2757) - Poznań, POLAND - JAN 19, 2017
Bottle. Quite light for barley wine, the beer is sweet, lots of brown sugar, dates, raisins and just touch of hops. Medium to full body, quite oily, bitter and bit alcoholic finish. Ok.

Bottle. Aroma has malt, caramel, mild tart and yeast. Taste of sticky malt, raisin, ripe fruit, caramel and mild hop. Nice, but really sweet.

Alengrin (5629) - BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2016
Danish barley wine on the ’lighter’ side of the spectrum, bottle from Bierenplezier in Almere. Moussy, dense, medium thick, pale greyish beige head over a hazy burgundy coloured beer with purplish hue. Perfumey bouquet of caramelized sugar, blue plum, blackcurrant, fig, dough, brown rum, raisins, tea leaves, some fried chicken somewhere, hint of iron, pear, white pepper, ruby port, dry earth, old cake, bitter orange, hint bayleaf, yellow grapefruit peel, cinnamon powder. Soft, rounded, sweet onset, lots of residual brown sugar sweetness along with hints of raisin, candied fig, pear and blackberry, sourish hint, softish carbo, full and supple, vinous mouthfeel; thoroughly malty middle, caramelly sweetness blended with a nutty, toasted, bittering edge which in the finish is further enhanced by a herbal, earthy, spicy hop bitterness of medium long duration as well as some warming, rum-like alcohol and a light earthy yeastiness. Well-composed in terms of flavor, sweetness is positioned nicely against bitterness, but not the most complex example of the style I had and I wonder if it would not benefit from a bit more ’cleanness’. I don’t think this will age all too well either. Still, in this form, a perfectly enjoyable and accessible English style barley wine.

MiP (15960) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2016
Draught at KØ16. Very sweet flavour, sugary with a lot of malt syrup. Cloudy amber colour. Small tan head. Much too sweet, but tastes all right, I guess. Does not taste of artificial sweetener, though.

Bottle on the goddamn train still. Pours brown with a thin off-white head. Do I smell BBQ? What’s going on? Dried fruit, caramel. Shit, my stop. I finished this on the platform like a boss.
