4.03/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Pours a deep honey/amber, somewhat cloudy. Three fingers of thick, tightly bubbled, lightly tanned head dissipated slowly, leaving globs of foam along the sides.
S: Immediately dominated by citrus hops and pine. They're quite intertwined, can't pick out a definite "citrusy" or "piney" prevalence. The malt background is impressive, scents of caramel, toffee, and maybe some maple syrup. Some raw boozy smell in there too, clean
T: I get a lot of piney hoppiness hitting first here, not so much of the citrus I got in the nose. Ther are hints of lemon and grapefruit though, just not prevalent. Nice malt background here, quite subdued, but dry biscuits, not so much sweet caramel as expected from the nose.
M: Quite nice, medium to full body, tightly bubbled to give it a velvety feel.
O: Not a big Barleywine fan, but I liked this. To be honest, drank a lot like a huge DIPA to me, I feel there is a wide range in the style and I liked that the malts were subdued here.
