reebtogi (5399) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
375ml bottle pours a hazy orange color with a small white head that settles quickly leaving no lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and herbs with alcohol as well. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness finishing with an alcohol burn. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, this is a very sweet barley wine with a strong alcohol presence. A true sipper. Would recommend sharing this one as a full bottle is intoxicating.
