3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ML bottle
In every way a typical barley wine. Low carbonation, in this case no carbonation. Very flat. Dark ruby color.
Nose is full of Brett, apple and grape juice. Very alive in the nose but very flat as well due to the Brett. Still holds the normal barley wine qualities in the nose of fruits and malt. Wicked slick and oily. Big beer but softened by the Brett and makes it to more drinkable. Interesting and very different

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Kamiel at the Sad Fish whale sess, pours lighter and hazy red. Top is medium in size without much lacing. Notes are definitely sweet but layered with candy sugar, plum, tobacco, cherry, grape, and booze. More sugary than a typical barleywine, next time more hops!
