3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A raelly nice fruity and dry roasted malts ale. Not quite a barley wine, but this brew has a great fruity flavour and a robust hop flavour with a mild bitterness. The malts are rather sweet and toffeed. Overall, a nice well balanced strong beer.
