Flavour is mild roast, alcohol, fruity bitterness as well as some caramel. Wellbalanced and pleasant. omhper (26061) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2004
2003 vintage, sampled draught at Stuffed Sandwich, Greater Los Angeles.
Dark brown with creamy head. Some vinous berries upo front. Sweet, buttery and very malty. Salty with loads of toffee. More of an English style barley wine, than an American hop monster variety. May I call for the substyle Utah Barley Wine ;-)
