4.13/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
App: Pours with a deep copper body and a ruddy-tan head. Lot's of action as the head settles.
Sm: Wafts of sweet malt, orangey hops and some alcohol drift over from the glass, and closer inspection is no less pleasant. This is a 2006 bottle, and the nose isn't that complex yet. But what it has is a less is more quality.
Ta/Mf: Again it's a malty and citrus hoppy goodness, but somehow it stands out against a barley wine that is just "simple" or "basic." There is massive rush of flavor as it crosses the tongue, bitter orange peel and sweet malt are balanced and forward in the profile. Strong carbonation, and a puckering mouthfeel make this an enjoyable offering in some sensible dose.
DA: Medium. As tasty and commendable as this classic barleywine is, I never have more the 2 or 3 servings.
Serving type: bottle
