tgncc (2900) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2013
The aroma is dried fruit, toasted malt. Not. Sweet or fruity as expected for an English barley wine. The appearance is amber, hazy, cream colored head. The flavor is fruit, caramel, toffee. The finish is sweet, bread, not bitter at all. Strange barley wine. Hopless, no bitterness. Not overly sweet. Enjoyable overall, though.
