2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Overall Rating: 0/5 - This is not for me; I would not drink this again. Moderate aggressive pour. Dark Brown liquid with creamy head about one finger of foam. Aroma is overwhelmed with pine and hop bitter. Very tight bubbles with lacing that quickly dissipates. Additional subtle aromas include Irish cream with light alcohol burn. While creaminess is pleasant on the palate, this soon fades and is overpowered with sharp notes of pine and bitter tones. First sip is quite strong with the pine qualities with little notes of malt or yeast. Malt flavors are a bit more pronounced throughout the mid sip and the finish. Wouldja- No

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Swing top bottle. A clear dark brown beer, with a large, frothy, lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. The aroma is moderately malty (toasted/roasted bread/nuts, caramel, hint of chocolate), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of raisin, figs, grapes, plums, spices, some minor notes of medicine/syrup, smoke and alcohol. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, very long finish with moderate to heavy bitterness, moderately alcoholic. Yes, very little of an Alt, many more resemblances to a Barley Wine, and not only an English one, given the nice and pretty abundant hopping. Good balance, creativity and complexity make this beer one of tyhe best from that area.

The flavour is roasted malty, with some caramel sweetness, dark fruits and a finish of herbal hops and a little warming alcohol. Very interensting and enjoyable.
