look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
The beer pours dark not opaque black in a white wine glass with basically no head. The aroma is firm and complex, extremely malty with plenty of molasses, toffee and prunes. We also notice the alcohol in there, but would of course never say 23%, making us believe this could be around 12% is an art by itself. The taste is also relatively complex, but way too sweet, almost harsh candy. The mouthfeel is full and a definition of syrupy: toffee, cinammon, vanilla, chocolate and coffee and an alcoholic malt finish. Definitely more on the barley wine side, but the sweetness is too overpowered for me to really appreciate this beer although I recognize it is a must-live beer experience that I won't forget so soon.
