Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2012
3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served in a snifter, this had a dark mahogany body, clear around the edges, with a quickly disappearing tan head. Eveb though my head was slightly stuffed, I could smell the peppermint even before I raised the glass to my face. That makes this difficult for me to rate, since I like the aroma of peppermint... but in a barley wine...? The flavor was strong with the mint, but also delivered a toasty taste of milk chocolate. It ended with a toothpastey clean finish. Should the admins move this to "Spice/Herb/Vegetable," I certainly wouldn’t be offended.
