Stubbornness, English Style Barley Wine, Bombastic Brewing, A deep, deep amber brown beer with a tan-like head, sports a nose of strongly malt and alcohol notes, small surprise for a 12.9% abv beer. It’s malt forward in this one, backed with earthy notes commonly found in English varieties of hops. Finish is long, malty and somewhat sweet without reaching cloying.
