3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I will rate this beer...hear ye hear ye. Smell is weak...not bad...but not salient or highly perceivable. Maybe a little hops (citrus...lemons), oxidized malt, and caramel. Appearance...as all appearances are...throw away category...but it does have nice lacing...tight bubbles and a nice clean burnt amber color. Palate should be called mouth-feel, as that is what food scientist call it. Pretty typical for a 3F brew...clean and well carbonated...but with a little oily resin (like a asian snatch waiting to be tamed...citation). Flavor is candy sweet , with a tad bit of feet-y malt...but it adds a nice body. Not what I want from a barley wine...but is is quite refreshing and pleasant. I’d rather drink this than go to another 08 DLD!
