Pours a red color with amber highlights. Carbonation is fine, but plentiful, and the head is a yellow/cream color. Lacing is sticky -- the head dies to a fine layer. Aroma is heavy malt and caramel with fruity esters and some real ?Juicy Fruit? notes. Mouthfeel is smooth, full bodied, thick and syrupy. Flavor is sweet at the start, caramel, with a blunt hop presence and a lingering but pleasant bite at the finish.
IMHO: Intense, but not over the top. A nice balance of characteristics -- not subtle. I would recommend this beer to the barleywine lover.
