Un capolavoro! Barleywine superlativo, i 24 mesi in botte fanno il loro dovere. Barley complesso, con un profilo aromatico caratterizzato delle note del marsala e dei malti, danno note di biscotto e pane

Kleurplaatje (169) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2017
Pours clear dark brown/ruby with no head. Aroma of toffees, ripe fruits, sherry notes... Beautiful. Tastewise smoothly sweet with some notes of wood, dark fruits, raisins, figs, caramel, porto wine, marsala wine. Vinous aftertaste which lingers long. Truly marvelous. Rich vinous mouthfeel and texture, full bodied, oily and smoothly syrupy. World class gem.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 From bottle at Borefts 2013. Awesome beer. Perfect mix between all the good from wine and beer. By far the best beer I had at Borefts. Sweet dried fruits, vineous notes, tawny port, some alcohol. I must find another bottle. Update: found another bottle. Pours no head. Body is hazy amber. Aroma contains light malts (light bread, cookie, roasted malts, nuts, molasses), light hops (flowers, pine, grapefruit, orange) and grape, raisin, plum, prune, white wine, tawny port, cask wood, honey and alcohol. Flavor is light acidic and then sweet. Body is full with syrupy texture. Carbonation is flat. It looks and feels like a port, it tastes like a beer and also like wine. This is not for everyone but I love it.

Una sorta di esperienza onirica, mi ritrovo in un porto siculo, a bere una meraviglia di birra. Dolce, sentori nitidi di legno, prugne e suggestione di cacao, nitido il sentore di marsala, laffinamento le dona una struggente bont

fkoolen (1129) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2014
37,5cl bottle at home. Nicely looking bottle, dark green with a beautifully decorated label. Pours a deep brownish red colour, no head just some bubbles. Complex aroma and taste with chestnut, sweet red dessert wine, dried fruits like figs, plums and raisins, ginger, roasted carameland sugary malts, vanilla cask, boozy alcoholic warmth, slight astringency. Aftertaste is lingering sweet, boozy and dry. Low carbonation, big body, oily mouthfeel. If theres one downside its the missing malty backbone that would make it more an ale than a wine.
