Reviewed By: Herr Mike Style: Barley Wine State/Country: California ABV: 9.6% Serving Type: 12 0z Bottle Look: 9 Med amber color, big frothy head, sticky lacing Smell: 9 Dried fruit, malt, citrus, wood Taste: 9.5 Brown sugar, caramel, orange, pine, grass, bread, cinnamon, earthy, hoppy, spicy, dates, alcohol Mouthfeel: 9 Creamy, chewy, slight carbonation Drinkability: 10 At 9.6 ABV, it's not the most potent barley wine out there, but that's OK with me, cause I might have another! Overall Score: 9.3 Value: 10 Cost/12 oz serving: $ 2.32 Overall Impression: WOAH! This is one complex beer! It's malty up front and has a nice hoppy finish, but there is so much going on here! This is one beer that makes me wish winter would never end! I might have to sneak one of these on a cool summer night!
