3.88/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Ice tea like in color. Pours to a thin light tan head that is quickly gone. A liquidy trace of lacing.

S: Heady, sweet aroma fills the nose. Nothing distinctive about the sweetness.

T: Sweetness starts on the front and side of the tongue, disappears and finally reappears in the middle of the tongue at the finish. Pretty much all sweetness, in a good way.

M: Body is thick and sticky. Not much carbonation. Very smooth.

D: It's a cool night and this is a warm treat. I haven't had many Barley wines, but this compares well to the few I have. This one definitely is not for everyday consumption, but is a nice treat at the right time.

Served: in an oversized wine glass.
