Poured from a bomber into my Duval tulip, date on the bomber was Dec. 10th, 2009. (Had on November 30th and Dec 1st, 2011)
A: Pours a watery brown, like dark tea or other similar watery brown substances. Had various layers of dark and lighter due to there being a lot of brewer’s yeast that came out when poured. Virtually no head.
S: like coffee or toffee (or toffee flavored coffee). Nothing really special, some caramel notes and what I think is coffee.
T: Strong, sugary, nothing extra special.
M: Balanced, and some caramel notes which complement the taste quite nicely.
O: Meh, okay certainly a decent beer to try. I’m not that into barley wines in general so it’s not really surprising that I’m not hopping all over this, but it’s decent. Really balance and doesn’t taste bad, just average. B- to B range.
