A: Pours a dark red with some brown. Quite cloudy. Tall, dense and thick dark tan head. Head fades slowly with great retention. Pretty substantial thick and dense chunks of lacing.
S: Loaded with dark fruits. Loads and loads of raisins primarily. Some dates and prunes too. Typical dried dark fruit aroma. Big heavy bread malts. Hints of brown sugar dance in and out when swirled.
T: Oh yeah, some decent hoppiness up front. Was not expecting that. Citrusy, primarily orange with some grapefruit I'd say. Heavy dark fruits again, primarily raisin. Heavy heavy liquid bread maltiness with lots of stale crust flavor. Minor hit of bitterness in the finish with bursts of citrus. Lingering grainy breadiness, toffee and hop bitterness, leaving this almost dry in a way.
M: Heavy, borderline syrupy. Medium to low carbonation.
O: Nice mildly hoppy barleywine. Great layers of complexity that are quite well balanced. Big and heavy without being too sweet or boozy. Though some barrel aging would certainly accentuate this one, I think. Still delicious, any way you slice it.
