3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Alcohol notes overpower the aroma of toasted malts
Appearance: A cloudy deep amber that is practically dark brown
Taste: Starts medium sweetness with toffee and malt. Subtle hoppy bitterness and ends with a strong alcohol aftertaste.
Palate: Warming finish but too strong an alcohol taste to be smooth.
Overall: An interesting collaboration and a better modern take on the Barleywine. Lacks the sophistication expected from these two breweries. Exhibits Cigar City’s mainstays of high alcohol content and assertive hops but fails to balance with a taste that can stand up.
