3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the Natomas BevMo. Pours antique copper with a 4 finger foamy beige/tan head. Rich sweet caramel aroma. Backed by some herby/citrus hop. Full bodied with mildly creamy carbonation. The first impression is roast caramel and darkish fruit. With a bit of time there’s some citrus hop bitter. It seems much more balanced than most barley wines. Let’s hear it for Ben Miller. Heck of an ale.
