3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very hazy copper color. Very thin off-white head. Aroma is malty with hints of copper. Sweet and malty gives way to a tartness quickly. Finishes a bit dry with some hop bitterness. Can get a good amount of the alcohol in it too.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A powerful and delicious barley wine. Full bodied. Deep brown in color. Smells of wet, minerally malts. Sweet yet finishes dry and leaves me wanting another sip. A rich and delicious beer.
