My wife is the beer nerd in our house, and I don’t approach beer like I do wine. I know that some traditionalist hate on this super trendy, hazy, OJ-looking style, but I like it when done well, and this is the best one I’ve ever had. Juicy, creamy, and delicious. This producer’s stuff is on point. — 17 days ago
Blackest pour, with a milk chocolate colored icing, thick, thorny lacing on an arabica slide. Cosmic paw prints. The coffee aromas ore omniscient. There is a slight licorice note and buckwheat/ barley-ness. The malt is adding a mocha element, as well as a toasted vanilla wafer. Impressive depth, real coffee mouthfeel here, the beer texture just adds to it. Nothing wimpy about this delivery. Allspice and dark chocolate accent the premium coffee here, and it is extraordinary! Get a sip while it still has a head. Enlightened brewing here! .

Butcher’s Tears - Old Geezer - 2016 Barley Wine — 22 days ago
Drank at victors cafe ... easy drinking .. barley any oak or tannin, stood up to food enough but good to drink w o food — a month ago
Pugnacious head puffs it’s billowy chest. Egg white and and foamy, with a tea colored translucence. Wave top lacing. Orange blossom and mango with grapevine and toast smells leads to sweet barley malt and tangerine. The mango is strong in the mouth, but not sweet. Tons of lemon oil, lime peel, and sweet grapefruit from the hops come out, but still it shows restraint (literally the earmark of every beer style these folks make) and balance. It is fruity, but never steers far from the earthy realm of beer. Opening and closing within the canon, and doing so with an ingredient far from its shores. Great work! Great Scot! .

A fav CdP paired to excellent Persian kebabs. Great fruit intensity for a 22y old. Nose of maraschino cherry, candied strawberry, blood orange, and mint. Palette - I don’t know! A lot going on and quite a lot of fruit still, and a stew of other complex flavors. Reminds me of a barley wine. Still has a background of faint, supportive tannin and acid. This may not get much better, but I’m not in a rush to open my last bottle. — 15 days ago
A funky swervey champagne Rose’ of all Pinot (8% still juice) where all the fruit is contained within a burlap sack of barley husk and smoked peaches. Muted dried fruits - dried orange peel, dried rose petals, dried wild strawberry, celery seed, fennel, and Parmesan. Tart berries only on the finish. So awesomely unexpectedly savory. — a month ago
Fantastic organic wine from Fosdinovo, Tuscany (northern Tuscany near Liguria, 4km from the sea). 4000 bottles produced. Canaiolo Nero 85%, 15% other indigenous red grapes. Permano - made with hands. Romans planted many varietals here 2000 years ago, and currently they have rediscovered 256 native varieties in the area. Turned into coal mine, then back to vineyards. Barley, oats, legumes, mustard seeds, Fescue grass (melliferous plant-honey bees attracting) planted in vineyards. Slavonian oak barrels. Not a fan of small barrels, but the untoasted small oaks used in the cellar are for used for pomace for 12-24 months. Rhubarb, Laurel, aromatic herbs, beautiful aroma! Paired well with pizza. Roscioli wine club. — 2 months ago
