3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle from the Alvinne store, thanks to Glenn for the recomendation. Clear dark brown with small tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malt with sweet malt sourness, some alc, nice. Flavor is roasted malt, yeast, some sourness, a little perfumey as it warmed, not bad. Medium to light body with a little carbonation. Very nice, but I would call this an imperial stout way before I would called this a barley wine.
