$6.95 Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA. 12 oz bottle.
It’s an extraordinary beer, in fact in many ways it’s barely a beer, but it is just about what I expected.
Pour is a deep orange viscous liquid with a head that disappears immediately. Amazingly sweet nose and tastes but the finish tempered by a really nice, warming smooth port finish. At 11.50 % this is close to unbelievable. The alcohol is there and is warming, but hardly noticeable. I could drink a huge amount of this – I’d probably regret it, but the drinkability is off the charts. Obviously amazingly rich.
A great example of the difference between American And English Barley Wines – all sweetness here with virtually no hop bitterness.
