CLIMAX 15TH ANNIVERSARY BARLEYWINE
Outstandingly celebratory 15th anniversary ale contrasts creamy caramel malting with red-wined brandy, cognac, and rosé nuances atop clean-watered juicy-fruited plain. Stewed prune, candied apple, bruised orange, pureed raisin and medicinal cherry envelop chewy butterscotch-toffee follow-through. Syrupy whiskey kick and buttered rum caking add to the dewy sweetness of ambitious ruby-browned delight.
