3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Cloudy amber color, short head. Aroma of caramel and toffee, some piney hop, like a soft barley wine. In taste it’s medium sweet and medium bitter, but actually lacks a bit of both to be in the barley wine category for me. The alcohol is well hidden though. Not bad, just expected a bit more of everything.
