Amber with an off white head - sweet malt aromas that are very good - nice sweet malt body with some caramel and some alcohol heat in a very nice way - lingering maltyness in the finish with some caramel and a nice heat from alcohol - this was very good

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nose is full of sugary caramel with really mild hops. A small ring persists but nothing more. Mouthfeel is syrupy, treacle-like almost. Pretty sweet but not overly so, an honest bitterness cutting into it. Overall a nice english barleywine, can’t wait to try more from these guys!
