3.84/5  rDev -10.9%

2013 vintage poured into Heavy seas tulip

Body is murky copper with thin bubbly head. Smells of plum, candied sugar, and heavy booze. taste is sweet caramel, oak, and alcohol. Thin and prickly mouthfeel. Really booze forward and abrasive.

I let the beer sit out for about 20 minutes to warm and it got better. As it warmed the flavors began to meld together nicely and the mouthfeel became more smooth. Still, nothing Earth shattering but solid BA Barley wine.

Overall: 3.75
