Christopher The Crimson Crooner—tasting notes
Christopher the Crimsom Crooner is one of the best Barleywines by Amager Bryghus. It has a sweet and alcoholic taste with a powerful bourbon presence and some hop bitterness. The label features an old style New Orleans singer so that should tell you something about what this beer is about!
Barley Wine is an American reinterpretation of classic English Barley Wine. Color ranges from light amber to medium copper, and aromas are quite hoppy, with floral notes of American hops. Taste is ballance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness, but the ballance is always towards bitter, with a strong alcoholic character. It is less hoppy and sweeter than an Imperial IPA.
