4.05/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
poured an almost ruby red with a finger width tan head that collapsed quickly, but left sticky lacing all the way down the glass.
smell was piney hops, a fair bit of caramelly sweetness and a hint of aldohol.
taste was sweet with a smack in the face of hop bitterness. almost like a hop syrup, wish it were just a touch drier.
mouthfeel was great, very creamy and rich, leaving a coating in the mouth between sips.
pretty drinkable for a beer of this type, but it catches up to you fast.
overall a really good beer. i still don't like this whole "american barleywine" concept though. it drinks like an imperial ipa, so that's what it should be called. american barleywine really doesn't tell you what you're going to get.
