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

Pours a brownish body with moderate head and lace and textbook aroma of citric, earthy hops and a hearty malt aroma of both bready, roasted malts and sweet malt. A good barleywine and mostly holds up, but it seems at some points the alcohol make it a tad bitter or burning on the backend. Overall, the hops give it citric zip and spice and the sweet malts make themselves known, and it has a little stickiness and tart/dark fruit edge. It is a good beer, designed to be a sipper, that just a has a couple of small chinks in the armor or else it'd be one of the betters ones out there.

Bottle courtesy of beastmaster. Pours cloudy opaque brown with no head. Aroma of biscuits, toffee, malt, brown sugar, molasses, hints of vanilla and bourbon even though not bourbon barrel aged. Taste is watery big bready malt and booze. Turpentiney, and thinner than expected. Lots of chewey sediment. No carbonation. Vodka burn. Was not ready for this after Chocolate Rain and some other beers tonight.
