Nose
Complex, to say the least: vinous and alcoholic with aromas of creamy malt and tart berries, oranges and sultanas.
Palate
Silky smooth, syrupy sweet and gumtinglingly warm. More creamy malt, oranges and sultanas. It has the flavour and character to work brilliantly with desserts and cheeses.
Finish
Warm but smooth. Lingering sweet malt, a hint of toffee, hop spice and more fruit.
Comment
A world classic barley wine that could easily be served in sherry schooners. It's brewed each autumn from the latest crops of barley and hops, and, though sweet, is exceptionally moreish – beware!
