4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a deep, dark amber with a thick and frothy beige head. Very appealing and complex aroma, with raisin, licorice, plum, apple, caramel, pine, and some chocolate undertones. The fruity aspects stand out most here. The taste, while really not what I was expecting, is very good as well. It is quite roasted. Big on caramel, coffee, chocolate, and pine. I still get the darker fruits underneath these dominant flavors. Contains an impressive hoppy kick that is very much like an IPA. Aftertaste is caramel, coffee, and lots of pine. More of a medium body here with a texture that is sticky. Alcohol content becomes apparent quickly and settles in very nicely. This beer really is something else. It feels like a blend of different styles that are all made up extremely well. Each sip gives a different impression to me. And the transition from the nose to the taste is wonderful. If you want to impress your friends, make them try this one.

Mmm ... somewhere between a double IPA and a barley wine. Nice place to get lost. Quite sweet and subtly boozy with chocolate and caramel from the malt against sweet then bitter pine and citrus notes from the hops. Great batch.

Grande american Barley wine. Corpo pieno, aroma e gusto con sentori luppolati, caramellati e un po’ liquorosi. Ne ho assaggiati di migliori, ma questa spicca per il suo equilibrio e "leggerezza", almeno contando che sono sempre 10º!

Pours murky brown with a light tan head. Aroma sweet feed, molasses and hops(?). Taste is carob-like malts followed by syrupy sweetness and a mild bitter mango-ish tingle at the finish. Nice for a cold Florida day.
