2008 vintage from 12 oz. bottle into BMS mug. Good 3-finger head dissipates a little quickly. Nice light red-brick color. Enticing stuff.
Very strong floral hop aroma is a little soapy at first blush but otherwise very powerful and pleasant.
Deep hop backbone - more like a DIPA than a barley wine in a way. Malt and alcohol are in the background. Very very hoppy for a BW but well-balanced.
After a while the malt opens up nicely, but this is a "pucker" on the mouth from the big hop profile.
The extra-abundant hop presence makes this a bit for drinkable for a barley wine. Solid stuff.
