3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Buxton Tap House. Murky reddish brown. Thin head. The grapes really give this an interesting character, although they seem to subtract from the maltier side of this barley wine. Tangy and sweet before ending a bit dry. Quite drinkable. Good effort.
