Old Fat Cat Barley Wine
Fat Cat Brewery Nanaimo
Ratebeer 3.66 93rd percentile
Beer Advocate A-
The nose was very boozy with light sherry hints, vanilla and lots of caramel malt. It has an oddly smooth taste for a big beer. Lots of caramel malt, apricot brandy and vanilla filled all the spaces between my teeth. But there was still more; resinous/piney hops and raisins.
The afterkick was long and syrupy sweet with an apricot tartness.
Alcohol Content +1 11.5%
Oddly not present in the taste.
It was not but not worth a repeat purchase. I might get next years edition.
Ingame Enhancement +1
After a bomber of this there is no pain. It does not do well for your score though.
It was nice to get a big barley wine that had a bit of hops to it.
