4/5 rDev -3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass
A: Pours a lovely mahogany brown color, slightly hazy. A light tan head of almost 2 fingers has excellent retention. I poured this beer, took a sip, then ate a plate of spaghetti. Came back maybe 15 minutes later and there is still half a finger of creamy foam left. Leaves practically a solid wall of lace on the glass.
S: A decently potent malt driven aroma. Sweet toffee and molasses are prominent. Pine is nearly as notable as the malt aromas.
T: A strong herbal pine flavor is what a notice on the attack. It quickly is matched and tempered back a bit by warm malt flavors of caramel. Some light fruit flavors, raisin and dark cherry, at a little bit of depth to the flavor. The finish is medium in length with some alcohol heat and a grassy hop flavor.
M: Medium-thick mouthfeel but very creamy and smooth. Carbonation is present but soft.
O: A great, relatively easy to drink barleywine. More bitter hop presence than many in this style, but still smooth.
Serving type: bottle
