This pours an oddly hazy dark amber, leaving a nice fluffy head.
Smell is lemony and spicy.
Taste is... Strong. Thick alcohol sweetness, malty, a bit of hop like pine, and somewhat - edgey. The alcohol is coming through I guess.
Mouthfeel is pretty creamy, but somewhat typical of any beer.
Finish is a bit acrid. Creaminess, but sharp.
This is a decent beer, but I'm not sure it is screaming "this is a barlewine". I think it is saying "this is a strong as hell beer". It is worth trying if you have little to choose from.
