look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
750 ml bottle shared with Treebs.
A: Bright ruby color with a small head that retained well. Sticky lacing along the sides of the glass.
S: Some pine and citrus hops on the nose. Booze definitely comes through in the nose and is dominant.
T: Initially I got some piney hop flavors, candied sugar and caramel malts, but then the booze just took over. Hot and detracted from the rest of the beer. I had to ask my buddy if this was a barrel aged beer because I wasn't getting any of the barrel that I would expect.
M: Medium body, syrupy, and too much booze heat.
O: The booze took away from a lot of potential. I'm not even sure I would characterize this as a barleywine.

Nearly no head, and it settles to rim bubbles. Nearly no spots for lace. The color is deep amber.
Warm and semisweet malty. Very rich.
Starts subtly, but the strong malt base provides lots of alcohol warmth. There's a bitter presence that provides balance. The mouthfeel is super rich but the carbonation is not lost. Very warming.
