look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Brilliant, bright ruby red. Perfectly clear. Quarter inch of light tan head on top, quite dense, and really hangs on.

Aroma is kind of simple, light caramel basically with some hints of raisin and fig. Just a touch of floral hops peak through. Kind of unremarkable.

Taste has more going on. Nice malty undertones. Sweet with sugar and caramel. Dark, ripe fruits of raisins and plums. Alcohol is there but under control. Some citrus and floral hints from some hops show through. Pretty good.

Smooth full mouthfeel that coats well and the flavor lingers, a touch of bitterness in the end.

Pretty drinkable too. Not the most complex, but a solid beer, no doubt. Has some rough edges from the hops and alcohol, but it is an American style barleywine, so it is expected. The size of this beer is well hidden, no alcohol hotness at all.

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!
