Brewhemia (313) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2017
Delicious barley wine with amazing vinious aroma with loads of dried fruits, caramel and vanilla notes and with a touch a lightly roasted malt. The taste is fantastic as well. Lots of sweetness but a good amount of bitterness in the finish adds balance and as does the alcohol though. Though very high in alcohol it does in no way become dominant or unpleasant. Very well balanced in both aroma and taste and thus a fantastic beer in my opinion.
