Babe's Brewhouse 12th Anniversary Barley Wine Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Babe's Brewhouse 12th Anniversary Barley Wine Ale - Brewer's Reserve Series.
Commercial description: “This is a big malty beer! It was carefully brewed with seven different malts, then generously hopped with falcon, centennial, horizon and chinook hops. Not stopping there, it was aged on american oak, fermented with Belgian yeast. At 10% it is amazing now, and will age well as a keeper!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark amber color with a nice tan head and great lacing.
Aroma: Caramel, toffee, roasted malts, dark fruit, Belgian yeast and oak.
Taste: Flavor follows the nose – sweet caramel, toffee, dark fruits, roasted malts, light oak and Belgian yeast notes.
Overall: Sweet and complex, Babe's Brewhouse 12th Anniversary Barley Wine Ale is extremely delicious. This 10% ABV offering is smooth, extremely drinkable and is making me I had purchased more!
