3.83/5 rDev -9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Apearance - Pours a reddish brown with minimal head and no lacing.
Nose- Huge malt aroma with caramel dark fruits predominate. Oak with a bit of vanilla are present, but not in force.
Palate- Definitely a malt forward beer. Sweet caramel with ripe fruit, vanilla and an alcoholic warming throuout. The hops play a supporting role, but do so well. they let the malt shine through and are only barely noticeable till the end.
Mouthfeel- Thick, syrupy, low carbonation
Drinkability- A bit too syrupy sweet for my liking.
Overall- Although I prefer more hops in my barleywines, I think this one would benefit from some laying down time.
Serving type: bottle
