3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
So I picked this up for a $1... thatís right, one dollar. Guess the lineup didnít do too well around here, so they were just getting it out the door. I picked up a case, think "how bad could a barley-wine really be?"
Man, I should have bought everything they had! A VERY respectable barley-wine that already had 6-8 months of aging on it and was tasting great! Plenty of malt sweetness with a bit of booziness that Iím hoping will fall off with a bit more aging, and lots of dark fruit complexity. Not the best barley-wine Iíve ever had, but itís without a DOUBT the best Iíve had for the price!
