3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
dark amber, smooth offwhite yellowish thick head.
aroma is prickly strong boozy, flowery hops, eggyolk, malts, quite strong aroma but not very flavorfull. lots of punch.
flavor is sweet malty, faint hoppy, boozy, but less boozy than 17.6% for sure, faint citric note. orange. Need some time to adjust to such a high abv, but the beer itself is a good very sweet barley wine with some hops to balance.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Uncelar. Small light brown head. Aroma is sweet, alcoholdense, spiced, caramelly and full of ripe fruits. Flavour is cloyingly sweet, full of overripe fruits, spice and alcohol. Medium bodied. Sweetish and fruity end. Hmmm. Not really to my likings.
