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

ippopotamo36 (2628) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 10, 2015
At the ACBF in Vichte-Belgium with markoijelena, courtesy of the brewer who offered samples of his 3 Barley Wines. This was the one I liked the most and that I can recall after such a long time, also the other 2 were tasty. Pours a dark brown color with some brightness, almost no foam. Nose: caramel, marsala wine, wet wood. Mouth: dry fruit (red fruit as well), again marsala wine and some chocolate. A very nice and tasty BW.

Fin (11068) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie , consumed at home Saturday 9th May 2015 Cloudy dark, murky, brown, very dirty puddle looking, no head. When you pour it, it actually looks thick. Sweet notes on the aroma, massively indulgent like a dessert wine, sweet woodiness. It’s 12% and you can tell it’s that strong.A7 A2 T7 P3 Ov15 3.4
