3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2015 Dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and dark fruits. Flavour is medium to heavy sweetness, but not too sweet. Unfortunately, I did not pick up any of the promised smoke notes. More like an Abt/Quadrupel than a Barley Wine. Very nice.
