Bottle onto Goose Island Glass
Appearance: Red, amber, white thick head at first, followed by a thin head.
Smell: Apple, sweet barleys, hoppy, fruity, sugary with a faint smell of alcohol.
Taste is bitter-sweet, with a hint of alcohol. Sugary, on the forefront and hoppy, citric bitter presence afterwords.
Mouthfeel: thick, bubbly. Highly carbonated.
Overall this is one of my favorite beers. It is very well balanced between the sweet barley wine and the hops. This is a beer that is definitely meant to be sipped on; no need to rush to drink it. The hop presence cuts through when the beer is at room temperature.
Serving type: bottle
