3.58/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A – Cloudy dark golden honey, healthy pour with less than a finger head, decent lacing throughout consumption, significant amount of sediment in bottom of bottle (did not affect first pour)

S – Hoppy, but not overwhelming

T – A little sweetness up front, hides 8.9% ABV well, not as bitter as the aroma might imply, well balanced as far as I am concerned.

MF – Medium body, smooth, medium to low carbonation.

O – Nice beer, glad I tried it, a rating of anything less than 4.0 means I would not actively pursue purchase of the beer again. But a 3.75 does not mean I would not drink it again, but rather I would not pick it of the shelf at a well-stocked bottle shop. I like the lower ABV barley wine, this might be a recipe that EPIC attempts to tweak.
