look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Pours a rich mahogany, dense yet silky beige head which hangs around as a thin cap. Good lacing.
Smell is a big hit of pine with a second wave coming through of sweet malt, caramel, and booze.
Taste follows the nose exactly ... big hop presence coupled with nice malt characteristics.
Mouthfeel a bit thin. A little disappointing.
Overall it's easy to see why this sets the standard for American barleywines, and it sets that bar pretty high.
