I’m not a barleywine fan but this isn’t half bad. It loses points on both taste and aroma because I can detect no hops. Otherwise, it meets the criteria for an American-style barleywine.

Malty. Breads, citrus, with some mild spice in the nose. Toffee, lots of toffee, plum, berries, slightly citrus, bready, very smooth. A nice barleywine. Not extraordinary but solid. Specific issues with the cloudy-ish look of the beer.. not very appetizing.
