Aroma- Dried Apricot, pineapple, Heavy Malt sweetness.
Taste- Sweet upfront with heavy fruit flavor apricot, pineapple, raisin, plenty of caramel sweetness backed up with a nice balance of bitter hop resins, very spicy hop oils and warming alcohol finish.
Huge mouthfeel on this one, carbonation helps balance the heavy malt. Great barleywine definitely recommended
