A - Beautiful beer. Darkly translucent, brown with glowing auburn highlights. Almost two fingers of thick, clingy, off-white foam, leaving enormous amounts of lacing.
S - Citrus and pine, but relatively subdued.
T - Wow, a huge dose of malts. Caramel, wood, vanilla. Balanced with some bright hop notes - mostly pine, but a hint of citrus. I normally don't like beers with this kind of malt profile, but this is supremely well-balanced.
M - Thin but oily; medium feel. Clings all over your mouth, leaving a dull, woody aftertaste reminiscent of tobacco. Quite a bit of foam from chewing and swishing. Huge dose of liquor-like alcohol.
O - This is my first barleywine, so I have little to which I can compare it. I see the resemblance to old DIPAs; there's definitely a heavier focus on the malts.
2013, poured into a Duvel tulip.
