3.68/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A-Poured with a finger head that broke down to a hanging 3mm ringing that laced slightly throughout drinking. Carbonation was good and helped with sticky head staying on glass while consuming.
S-Almost too sickenly sweet with up front caramel and vanilla notes. Distant dark fruit essence with a too strong alcohol tinge.
T-A little too sweet and stepping slightly over the line on alcohol taste. Fruit is only a minor part of flavor, but above average. Plum is what is perceived.
M-Average for a barley wine. Could stand some thickening.
O-This calls for more fruit notes. Since high alcohol looking forward to how it is in five years. Hops would have done this good as well. Not a bad brew, just overly Sweet.

Appearance is a brownish copper with a half finger of head. The head dissipated rather quickly. The nose had the slight hint of sweetness. The malt flavors are not nearly as hearty as they should be considering the style. The lightness of the malt makes the alcohol tastes strong and intrusive. The only real highlight of this offering is the trace of dark fruits in the flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
