3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
On keg @Un Mare di Birra 2011. This was a special guest barley wine on the cruise. Triple hopped, it seems honey at the beginning. As far as I remember is that is was very hard to drink for me. Without any doubt, it is an unforgettable beer! ;-)
