A lot of sweetness is the abiding memory imparted by this brew.
Pours a lovely, attractive golden color with a decent head, but one that disappears very quickly. The slickness in the mouthfeel is not unpleasant but really is true to form for beer that has a much higher ABV. This has the mouthfeel of a Barleywine, but lacks the kick. In some respects that’s not at all bad, since you get the sweetness and the feel without the “kick in the ass” alcohol.
Currants? Au Courant? I have no idea about that or its relevance, but it tastes good to me.
I’d like to try more of this to see how it really sits in a longer session, but for now I enjoyed it, even if it fell between two stools for me.
