Cask; Status uncertain.
At 9% ABV it sits nicely beside our Orkney Porter, also 9%, and is the first time we’ve brewed a barley wine. A lovely deep amber in colour, we loaded it full of American hops - and then we put some more in! All in the interest of balance, it also contains a small mountain of Maris Otter pale malt.

All of the toffee flavours, deep aroma, thin feel but hoppy, tastes very nice and a good winter beer

Very poor nose . Colour is a very light amber .rhe initial taste is good but strong taste of isopropanol . This indicates lot of sugar or poor quantity malt .rhe hop profile is dominated by strong alcohol and poor malt mix . Overall a pretty barley wine beer . Sorry to slang you . Generally I love highland beers.if you need to know a good barley wine try sierra Nevada Bigfoot .
