3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a fairly clear amber with a small beige head. Aroma of medium dark fruits, citrus hops, and some perfume. Flavour is dry and fruity, with some citrus fruits, a metallic tinge, and a very dry hoppiness. Dry mouthfeel with not really any barley wine qualities given that this is billed as a mini barley wine. Decent stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at ECT. Cloudy brown-gold pour with a brief white head leaving no lace. Nose is caramel corn and roasted malt. Meduum-light body with moderate, sharp carbonation. Fruit pits, biscuit, resin and caramel. Fairly dry, with some astringency, which is to be expected. Still has the Ninkasi house flavor, but I did enjoy this one.

Draft at special brews. Pours a murky dark amber with a loose tan head. Beautiful malty caramel nose. Creamy medium body with light carb. Lots of malty residual caramel on the mid palate with a sweet malty finish. Quite dimensional and forward for a second runnings beer.
