4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Beers of Europe. Deep clear reddish brown colour, thick white foam. Quite sweet malts, caramel, Biscoff, then lots of sticky resiny fruity hops. Bitter finish, cuts through the sweetness. In the hop profile and bitterness it is definitely better described as an Imperial Red than a barley wine. It is a bit boozy but with that citric bitterness I didn’t find it cloying; not really one to smash anyway.
