LSB 2019—tasting notes
LSB 2019 is a rye Barley wine from Laugar, barrel-aged in Jack Daniels. It has some liquor in the aroma, with some wood, red fruits and a warm alcoholic feeling. Taste follows the aroma, with some sweetness and some wine and chocolate hints towards the end.
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.
