Opened up the second bottle that Couevas sent, thanks again man!
Appearances: Pours with a thin but long lasting head, beautiful amber/ruby color
Aroma: Malty sweet, fruity, maybe like dates? No hop aroma
Flavor:Very malty sweet, still has a good supporting bitterness, no hop flavor
Mouthfeel: Good and thick, but not syrupy
Overall: Very good barleywine, no sherry or cardboard flavors that I could detect, like it a lot
I'm not great at reviews but working on my palate over time. Thanks!
PS good alcohol warmth following sips, no alcohol flavors though, woot!
