4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ home. Dark reddish brown, slim beige creamy head. Imperial nose with big toffee, caramel and honey tones along with hoppy fruitiness. Taste is likewise: big malted, sweet flavours beautifully combining with deep hoppy tropical and citrus fruits and a nice bitterness. Great flavours, complex but still balanced. As it warms, it gets more stout-ish with roasted coffee and chocolate tones coming up along with wine-like properties (red fruits, boozy, more dry). Dry, lingering fruity finish. Oily but soft mouthfeel, big body, medium-low carbonation. Very nice.

I do enjoy a good barleywine, and this fits the bill. It's dangerous, though. One 16 oz can at this percentage and it's almost too much to drive home.

A really good beer bit not amongst the favourites. Strong enough as a barley wine beer but it is best combine a night out.
