Notes/Commercial Description:
This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lover’s delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficianados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.

My first barley wine. Different for sure. Not much head but what's there is beige and light. Aroma is Carmel and fruit and yeast. Chocolate, caramel, some fruit. Chewy. Nice bitterness afterwards. Back of the throat pow. Not my last barley wine.
