Default Is it too soon to call it love?

I just took a peek at my big, English barleywine after a week in primary to make sure fermentation went through. Obviously I had to sneak myself a taste. Being that it is an 11+% alcohol beer and it is less than a week old, I was not expecting much. But I was floored by how great it was. It's a brilliant copper color and tastes like smooth, honeyed scotch. And as icing on the cake, the four ounce taste I had was enough to give me a small buzz on an empty stomach.

I can only imagine what it will taste like when it has time to age.

Yes, it is too soon. You are clearly infatuated.

So just pour yourself a few glasses straight outta your fermenter I was damn near doing just that after tasting my last hydro sample of my Irish Red. I know the feeling. I hate waiting!
