Poured from bottle into tulip glass.

A: Vigorous pour resulted in virtually no head and rather thin lacing. Deep rich brown.

S: Alcohol, figs and raisins, one of the strongest noses that I've encountered in a beer.

T & M: Full bodied, strong malt apparent up front with finish coming across with raisin and chocolate notes.

D: So strong, this is one serious beer. The one bottle was great but there is no way I could have had another bottle.

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!
