Appearance: It pours the color of dark caramel. Head doesn't stay long at all. While it's there it's off-white and full of tiny tiny evenly distributed bubbles...it's a beer head, what did you expect? It dissapates into a nice lace.
Smell: Hops. Strong hop aroma. Not much else there. Wasn't particularly impressed by the smell.
Taste: Comes on strong with the hops in the front. Bittering in the middle, leaving with a woody sweet character. Perfume comes to mind but in a good way.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, typical of a barley wine. Thicker than most not as thick as some. Carbonation is strong and really covers your tounge when you take the first sip.
Drinkability: Unless you are a fan of the strong hops flavors found in IPA's I wouldn't suggest this beer. The overwhealming flavor, unlike some other barleywine's is hops. Everything about it from the start to finish leaves you with a mouthfull of that hop flavor. Enjoyable.
