3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown Belgian barley wine with a lot of fig in the nose, a firm clean bitterness, off-dry, warmth in the belly but not on the tongue. Best by says 2015; I don’t know its age but there is an oxidized sherry note that the ale handles with grace. Otherwise it’s a bit clean and ought to have more flavor for its strength.
