Barley wine greatness from Emelisse. Somehow they mixed the sweetness of a barley wine with the smooth bitterness of hops. Really good.

Dark amber with a beige head and enough carbo...aroma is caramel, malts and fruit. Taste is malts, caramel, cookies, fruit, alcohol, sugar, a little sour and a nice small bitter finish. Nice beer!

Bottle, 33cl, at home. I can hardly smell anything in the aroma, but that might be because my nose closed up after the first sip. The taste is so full of alcohol that it made me sneeze. The taste is mild at first with some chili pepper and wood, then roasted malt and burnt sugar, then alcohol and aspirine. It ends with a bitter finish, that’ll make you long for the next sip. First barley wine ever. Bonus points for the complexity of the beer, but it’s not an ’easy’ drinker.
