Day 8


10% Barleywine
I have to admit I’m a bit of a fanboy of this brewery and have enjoyed all I’ve had from them so I had high expectations of this one.

This is the first of an ongoing annual release from them that will be different each year until they’ve perfected the recipe and this one proves a solid start.

Sweet toffe aromas escape from the bottle on opening and pours a lovely deep red with a small fluffy white head atop.

It’s very Malt forward,with candy sugar sweetness,tempered with some spice and a little bitterness at the backend. It’s certainly not the finished article but it’s a great base to build on..I look forward to seeing where they go with this one next year
