21st Amendment Lower Da Boom
21st Amendment Lower Da Boom from Al’s of Hampden. The beer pours a dark amber color with a foamy beige head. The aroma consists of caramel, cherry, malts, and chocolate. The taste is smooth and malty and very caramel forward. There are accents of chocolate, raisin, and a light grassy hop accent mixed in with a dry toasted malt finish. The alcohol content is 10.5% ABV. This was a peppery and spicy barleywine that took the tongue for a ride. However, the caramel profile of it is very overpowering and dominates the other flavors, leading somewhat to its demise.
