Swaroga (1663) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2015
This is one of the most easy to drink barley wines I’ve had so far. Has a soft and smooth mouth feel. Great looking head and lots of druity aromas with honey and tart. Lots of boiled, candied and dried fruits in the flavor. Plus some fresh citrus. Good stuff. Not a heavy Barley Wine one would expect from this style though.
