Appearance- Poured a dark amber, and brilliantly clear beer with a frothy head that slowly dissipated into a variety of bubbles that eventually left a lace around the perimeter of the goblet.
Smell-Spicy yet sweet smelling hop aroma right on the nose. Flowery essence with a peppery finish
Taste- Slightly sweet with a pronounced dank, pungent, chewy bitterness that lingers on until the alcohol taste pushes it's way forward and says hello. This beer has a huge bite, that goes on and on and on.
Mouthfeel- This is one full bodied bitter beer, with an extraordinary amount of hops to balance the malt on this one. The alcohol just simply invades your mouth combined with a coating of hops to make this a well rounded beer.
Drinkability- Wow! Sierra Nevada has really managed to create a highly drinkable barley wine, that leaves you coming back for more year after year.
It tastes like another.
Serving type: on-tap
