3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a little(r) cup with one finger of head on a deep copper colored body.
The smell is faint; mild grain and bread. I was hoping for a little more.
The taste is nice with barnyard sweetness and mild lemon bitterness.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
A solid barleywine and enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At Jupiter during Sour Sunday 2014. (my first one from this brewery)
Clear copper with a small head. Toffee, dried fruit, some warming alcohol and malt. Not bad at all but I though this one would be a bit thicker.
