3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 662 of 876 from A Tutta Birra, Milan; bb 24/10/2016, 1½ years old
Dark brown color with generous creamy head. Aroma of caramel, with light fruitiness, and old wood. Correct body strength; the mouthfeel is very smooth; the flavor is basically caramel, with notes of dark fruits, and quite evident alcohol; the sweetness level is moderate to low; correct bitterness; there is a light nutty touch in the end.
Good, different from most English Barley Wines, although not too exciting.
