Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project Our Finest Regards English Barleywine at 11% ABV (C$13.37 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 650 ml, bottle date 1-Nov-2015, acquired 18-Aug-2016, reviewed 26-Nov-2016)

Appearance: clear brown with amber-brown highlights, one finger of creamy light tan head that retains well, light lacing. (4/5) Aroma: molasses, chocolate syrup, caramel, dark boozy fruit, light coffee. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium-full slightly slick body, moderate carbonation, lingering sweetish and warming finish. (4/5)

Nice. Opens up nicely as it warms, developing rich and complex flavours on a medium-full body, with a pronounced but not harsh alcohol warming. The sweetness is high but not cloying, and smoothly transitions into pleasant coffee-like tones, but remains a bit sticky on the finish. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
