Have you ever heard of the enhancement barleywine drinker: Everything tastes better...with a barleywine!
Pours a mild amber color with a two-finger head into my glass. If it looks like a barleywine, it must certainly be one!
Sweet and savory malt is complimented by hints of raisin, spice and grape/cherry. Very hop forward. Perhaps a companion to Duvel?
Citrusy hops clash with spicy, chewy malt, leaving some semblance of raisin on the tongue. Very strong. Boozy.
Mouthfeel? Lingering alcohol warmth and raisin notes. Not much else to go by here.
You will likely need to age this beer for more than a year. It's boozy and difficult to truly enjoy in this stage.
