Very Good
Notes: Our English-American hybrid barley wine has a dark amber color, full body, high residual malty sweetness and caramel/toffee aroma and flavor. The complexity of alcohols and fruity-ester characters are counterbalanced by assertive American citrus hop bitterness and extraordinary alcohol content. English varietal hop aroma and flavor are at high levels.

Nose is roasted malts with a little alcohol (listed as 11.5%). Moderate carbonation. Initial taste is roasted malts with soft water profile. As it warms up the roasted flavors come out more. There is a hint of candied raisin on the back end. The hop Pettitte is closer to that if an American style barley wine. The mouthfeel is good. There us an initial clean feel followed by a moderate viscosity coating. Overall the beer is good. Has more roasted notes then typical for this style.
