Dark burnt bronze pour. Negligible head. Caramel and alcohol are the Predominant aromas. Sweet caramel flavor, spread across a bready backbone. Strong alcohol presence. Could probably benefit from a little celering time. Generally, good barelywine.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 33cl bottle sampled in a snifter. Pours a dark brown brew with a small light beige head with low retention and nearly no lacing. Aroma honey, bread, alcohol and lots of licorice. Taste of caramel, licorice, dried fruit. I really like the subtly sour though against all the sweetness. Very well balanced brew! Mouthfeel is warm, full and slighly creamy. Instant favorite and highly recommended. Get?s better while the temperature rises.

Great deep and very rich barley wine taste. The first zip was a feast I didn’t expect the intense taste.
