Persephone Brewing 2015 Barley Wine Review Persephone Brewing Co. – 2015 Barley Wine Review

The Persephone Brewing Company has released their second annual Barley Wine in the final month of 2015. This beer comes in at 11.9% alcohol, also known as the BC legal maximum for beer. From the bottle this beer pours as a dark and opaque brown colour with two fingers of head which slowly erupts from the base of the beer. The dense and lacing head gives way to a rich and boozy aroma of dark fruit, molasses and a cherry or currant like sharpness. The body is thick and very creamy while the first flavour that briefly hits the palate is a sour-cherry tone. This is quickly masked by the plum and molasses richness that engulfs the palate. On the finish a warming liquor tone comes in with a lingering hop bitterness that grows towards the finish

Alcohol – 11.9%
Size – 650ml Bottles

    This was really good last year so I would assume it would be no different this time. Haven’t picked up a bottle as of yet though.
