3.95/5 rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance is copper in color with a golden honey hue. There was a thin layer of head to this offering and it dissipated rather quickly. There is a light malty and bready nose detectable. Abundance of malt flavors in the upfront taste followed by a nicely bitter finish that indicates the presence of a touch more hops than normal in a barley wine. Slight touch of alcohol here, but all-in-all this is a smooth one for clocking in at almost 10%
Serving type: on-tap
