4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled in Craft Republic. Amber red colour. Very intensive malty aroma of dried fruits and raisn. Sweet rich malty start very similar to aroma, very full body, alcohol is hidden good enough, growing noble hop bitterness in finish and aftertaste. Balance is close to perfect. Good english style barleywine.

A weird smell of tenderized meat. Very strong but not bitter at all: like a good porto. Lovely reddish color. Not my kind of beer but a very good representant of the barley wine category.
