Triptych Brewing Charlie's Fine Barley Wine

“Strong pine, anise, and citrus hops initially. Soft toast, biscuit malt with a hint of low caramel behind. Low orange- and apricot-like esters. Strong, sweet candy-like orange flavor, similar to an Old Fashioned cocktail without the bitters or cherry. Citrus before sweet, and more fruit-oriented than hop.”
