3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Peachy hop notes with a toffee backbone and a little hint of something alcoholic on the nose, maybe a smidge of speyside malt.
Biscuit gives way to some big liquorice flavours to taste and some more poached peach to finish. Maybe a little bit thin for the alcohol, but a nice brisk more-ish-ness that keeps you sipping.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very strong. Barleywine aspects to it. Malt forward with a medium amount of bitterness to it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, deep amber, beihe head.
The aroma is fairly focused on malt, lots of caramel, fudge, lightly roasted, marzipan, almonds, strawberries (!).
Dry, medium body and bitterness.
Malty taste, caramel, yeast, hops, marzipan, nuts. Feels like a lighter Barley Wine type of thing.

Solid effort once again from mountain goat. Sessionable but nothing fancy.
