Flat Earth Winter Warlock

This is a 10.1% ABV golden English barleywine from the Flat Earth Brewing Company in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The beer pours orange amber in color. There is a short head of off-white foam, not long lasting. The aroma is deep grain and citrus, orange and light lemon. The taste follows the aromas directly, deep grain, very malty, like the sweet potato smell of the breweries when the wind is right in Edinburgh, with fruity and citrus tones over it. The finish is dry and moderately bitter, along with a citrus, nearly metallic, (but not unpleasant or incongruous) tang. It has a subtle tingling carbonation and a mellow warming effect. This doesn’t hit you over the head in any way, subtle, but damn, damn, good.
