Barley wines are traditionally hefty brews, but ours is downright excessive. The huge maltiness of this beer is only tamed by an equally prodigious addition of hops, creating a rich, slightly sweet, caramel-hued ale infused with assertive bitterness and bright hop notes, all culminating in a pleasing dryness. While it will evolve into an even more glorious brew with age, this beer's delicious onslaught of flavors will seriously challenge your ability to wait any longer to drink it.

    Aroma: 10 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 7

    22 oz bottle. Pours hazy copper orange with a big creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

    The aroma is surprisingly subdued - sweet caramel malts, some fruit and some ashy metallic hops and medicinal alcohol.

    The flavor is sweet caramel malts, fruit and piney resiny hops with a bit of hot alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium bodied - slightly light and watery.

    Overall, nice balance of sweet caramel malt and hops. It's a bit hot and a bit thin.
