4.18/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: Black/dark chocolate color, becomes somewhat see through around the edges of the beer as I tilt the glass. Minimal head and lacing left around the glass.
S: Dark, chocolate malt, maybe some lightly toasted malt in there as well, sweetness throughout, a bit of alcohol present in the smell when I really dig into the smell, but its not a bad scent and is a nice additional layer to the dark/chocolate smell.
T: This hides the 12%abv very well. Dark chocolate, lightly roasted/toasted malts and a bready/biscuit flavor to it, a little bit of caramel in the middle,dark fruits, hops don't seem very strong at this point but add a bit of bitterness and earthy flavors in the middle and on the finish
M: thick and rather still, a bit syrupy.
O: This is my one and only bottle of this beer, wish I had picked a few up and tried at least one earlier on in its life, but this is very good as it is now. Haven't had much in the way of barleywines but I am liking this one, especially with the chocoloate/dark malt flavor being the strongest of the flavors. It is going down very easy for its strength. If I was somehow lucky enough to find a single sitting in a store somewhere I would pick another up for sure.
