2011 bottle poured into my Harpoon 100 barrel series type snifter.Around 50 degrees.
A. Nice ruby red clear body with good carbonation coming of the bottom of the glass,two finger off white fluffy head.Leaves good lacing behind as I work my way through the glass.
S. Lots of hops I get first and foremost,some pineapple and pine, as i keep smelling it I start to get caramel and some grainy bread,get some typical sweet sugar smell also.I get some alchohol in the nose also.
T. Very hoppy,the hoppiest barlywine i've had to date.First off I get that earthy bitter pine taste,I'll say that the hops pretty much dominates this one.Also some caramel and sweet sugar,like I said before hops take away alot of underlying tastes.Hoppy after taste.
M. Mouth is very nice medium heavy feel.Very smooth and creamy.
Overall I liked this beer ,I'm thinking I definately would like it better with some age on it.A bit to hoppy for a Barleywine for me,but I still really liked this Craft beer classic.
