(Bottle at Chris & Ruth, huge thanks) This was a quite nice barley wine. Maltiness wasn’t really intense but you could feel that a lot of malts were used when brewing this. Age had brought some raisiny and dried plum like aromas and flavours. The alcohol was present but it didn’t hide the flavours. A pleasant new acquaintance.
