Aus der Flasche im 2016-11 getrunken. Ein echt fettes Teil! Für ein Barley Wine noch etwas zu "frisch", aber schon jetzt richtig lecker. Die Süße und Hopfenbitterkeit wirken recht harmonisch, wobei die Bitterkeit für micht recht dicht an meiner Grenze ist. Niko100 (2994) - Chicago, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2017
