Old Bad Cat Barley Wine

Old Fat Cat Barley Wine
Fat Cat Brewery Nanaimo

Ratebeer 3.66 93rd percentile
Beer Advocate A-

Taste +3

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.

Aftertaste +2

The afterkick was long and syrupy sweet with an apricot tartness.

Alcohol Content +1 11.5%

Oddly not present in the taste.

Value 0

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.

Overall 7/10

It was nice to get a big barley wine that had a bit of hops to it.
