2004 edition ~ served around 55 degrees
This pours a nice garnet color that seems to be pretty clear. A nice rush of fizzing head that quickly dissipates to a ring and a few swirls.
The aroma is sweet caramel, alcohol, and a little vinous.
This has a big malty backbone with a faint plum flavor that quickly gives way to an astringent flavor that leaves a nice dry mouth and little after taste. Each sip is a little warming and although there is a little alcohol flavor, its not overpowering. But this could sit down in the cellar pretty well, and hopefully tame down some of the tannic qualities. Overall this isnt a bad barley wine by any means, not as complex as Ive had, but this is pretty green.

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
