DrSilverworm (7799) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2015
22oz bottle, tasted during RBWG bus tour. Towards the end of the bottle. Totally hazy red brown color. Thin off-wnite head, leaving decent bits of lace. Bigger body. More full feel. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation, sort of creamy and slick. Moderate sweet taste. Mild oxidization. Light bitter, mild warmth. Caramel, some barrel character, kind of spicy woody touch of apple. An alright barleywine.

Rating from notes. Brown color. A little oxidation, medium sweet and a hint of hops. I didn’t taste brandy but it is a little hot on the palate.
