3.53/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12.7 fl oz bottle poured into a tulip. No date. Bartender said it's probably a 2011.

Appearance - Medium cloudy brown body. Thin white lace with good stick and visible sediment.

Smell - Tons of dark, overripe fruit. Extreme banana. Sweet. Plenty of alcohol.

Taste - Very tart and bitter. Very strong. Smokey.

Mouthfeel - Very astringent.

Overall Drinkability - This thing kicks you in the mouth with out even a noticeable hop presence.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A- Cloudy amber pour, head is non existent.

S- Watery malt, sweet, very boozy!

T- This is sweet on the way in, and hot on the way down. Molasses overshadows caramel malts with a warm boozey finish.

M-Thick and sticky, no carbonation whatsoever.

O-By far the highest abv I've seen in a barleywine; this brew is a one hitter quitter! I love everything Mikkeller does...brilliance in brewing!
