This is a lovely beer. From presentation through to pour, from the head through to the appearance, from the color to the body, it’s a feast for the senses.
Deep, deep mahogany red coloration, with a good head that is firm and slightly pink in color. Lots of alcohol, but this is very well tempered by the sweet maltiness. Less Barleywine style than some, more of a malt and alcohol explosion.
Very, very full bodied in the mouth with plenty of perfect carbonation. This is a beer I could sit and drink an alarming quantity of, but also feel satisfied after one or two.
Reminded me a lot of the Moretti Birra La Rossa.
Great, slightly stubby bottle completes the experience. Thanks to rajendra82 or the tip!
