3.68/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
2010 vintage consumed dec 2011
A-Copper that is translucent with some light passing through. Low carbonation and poured into a glass producing minimal head that disappears entirely throughout drinking.
S-Minor Fruit and sweetness to nose, very blaise/balanced on these notes.
T-Smooth beginning with caramel with minor hints of fruits that follow. Finishes sweet without much bitterness at all. Hops really take a back seat in this brew.
M-Fairly similar to most ales, quite light for a barley-wine.
Overall an adequate Barley-Wine. Carbonation is very light (2010 vintage contributing to this?). Flavor is balanced, but have some cellared to try at 5 and 10 years to see how it develops.
**As a follow up consumed later at a room temperature and vastly improved overall drinking experience moving overall up to 3.5 and taste to 4. In future, will drink Barley Wines at 50' to 65'.
