Niewielka, sycząca piana, ktra szybko opada prawie do zera. Barwa rubinowa, delikatnie opalizująca. Aromat delikatny, "belgijski" - są suszone owoce, cukier kandyzowany, stary chmiel, odrobina ził, karmelu i herbaty z hibiskusa. W smaku płsłodkie, ze sporą ilością rodzynek, syropu klonowego, karmelu, miodu, z niedużą ziołowo herbaciano pikantną goryczką, lekko cierpką - ewidentnie przypomina to bardziej Belgian Strong Ale niż Barley Wine. Wysycenie niskie do średniego, pełne w odbiorze, pięknie ukryty alkohol.
Bardzo fajne, mocne, ciemne belgijskie piwo, w moim odczuciu lepsze niż pozbawiona słodyczy i odrobinę zbyt alkoholowo-kwaskowa wersja Barrel Aged.

Alleen gedronken, donker rood bruin van kleur, korte schuimduur, sterke geur van kokos, pruimen en rozijnen, smaak past bij geur, is erg warm met nauwelijks bitter, niet te zoet gelukkig en heeft een aangename afdronk zonder droogte of bittertoon

33 cl bottle at home. Appearance: orange-brown with medium tan head and a massive load of brown yeast. The yeast looks like river sedimentation. Aroma: brown sugar, bread, sirup and metal. Taste: high sweetness and medium bitterness. Brown sugar, banana, bread and metal again in the taste. Finish is a little hoppy and warming. Palate: medium bodied, sticky texture and medium carbonation. I think there was something wrong with this bottle, because it didnt feel, taste and smell like an ordinary barley wine. Ill have to try this one again sometime.

Shark_Pants (679) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2016
Bottled Jan 2015. Deep ruby red with reasonably small creamy yellow-beige persistent head, initial fizzing similar to soft drink. Rich toffee malt aroma, with raisins, plums, a little sherry and some butteriness. The taste has a rich caramel maltiness, hazelnut, some diacetyl, almost cola-like notes, vegetal hop bitterness. Lingering sweet finish. Big richness but no noticeable alcohol flavour. Full bodied, lightly prickly carbonation helps counteract some of the big sweetness. Pretty good but would benefit from aging to round off some of the harsher edges.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 butelka, warka do... hgw, Lot 01/2016. kolor mocnej herbaty, kremowa, gesta, ladna piana. aromaty niezbyt intensywne - jakies trawiaste chmiele, ale przede wszystkim karmel, tofii, lekkie przyprawy i krzaczory, po ogrzaniu ciut rozpuszczalnik czy inna farba olejna wylazi. jest tez ta BW slodycz zbozowa. w smaku slodkie, poszczypujace alko w przelyku, nie agresywne, karmelowe, trawiaste. o dziwo - pije sie calkiem niezle, choc jak patrze co napisalem, to brzmi koszmarnie... moze to zaleta niemal braku wysycenia w polaczeniu z lepka, syropowa konsystencja? nie wiem, ale ryli spoko
