My first from this virtually unknown brewery, this little gem sends tingles up through the nose on a first whiff, flaunting aromatics of caramel, wood and ethanol on a backdrop of pastry and spices.
At the mouth this beer is very heavy, almost viscous, but with a short after taste, very soft carbonation and of medium high bitterness. It feels - at the mouth - like I would imagine a Heather pyment to taste: Full; With strong notes of wood, smoke, spice, dark fruit and molasses and even the most pleasant touch of mint like notes in the backend.
Glad I found this one since I had almost given up on Barley wines, a style that I feel is very often dishonored by underwhelming glorified malt liquors that proliferate on the craft scene.
Not the case at all with this beer.
