3.54/5 rDev -14.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: a deep brownish red. pretty hazy a little bit of floating sediment. three fingers of a tannish head. leaves a bit of a lacing.
Smell: strong vanilla and toffee sweetness smell, very pleasant start. followed up by some piney and spicy hop kick
Taste: strong piney and spice hop, not nearly enough of the vanilla and toffee or malts. some toastiness from the malts. This one needs a bit more time on the shelf
Mouthfeel: pretty bitter and sticky. i wanted to be a bit creamier
Overall: This one just didn't do it for me. i liked the idea of the toasted malts in the barleywine but the hop choice was off for me. I will hang on to some and see how it ages
Serving type: bottle
