Evil Twin Brewing Freudian Slip Barley Wine Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Evil Twin Brewing Freudian Slip Barley Wine Ale.
From the Evil Twin Brewing website: “Did you also at some point in your life get seduced by promising words like ‘probably (not) the best in the world’, ‘it (doesn’t really) work every time’ etc. This American Barley Wine says it how it is. It’s intense, attention seekingly hoppy and definitely your kind of beer. A beer with a big ego, drive and a huge thirst for recognition.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a somewhat cloudy dark amber color with a dense off-white head and great lacing.
Aroma: Bready and caramel malts, toffee, citrus, brown sugar, dark fruits and pine.
Taste: Caramel, toasted and bready malts, citrus and pine hop bitterness, toffee, brown sugar and dark fruits.
Overall: Complex and balanced nicely, Evil Twin Brewing Freudian Slip Barley Wine Ale is sweet and hoppy. This 10.3% ABV offering is bold, delicious and something I will drink repeatedly.
