A: Deep copper orange/amber. Slight haze to it. Thick fluffy light tan head. Great retention. Nice sticky, level lacing.
S: A mix of pine and grapefruit hops with notes of carmel and toffee malt.
T: Intense PUNGENT earthy/pine hops right of the bat, then the rich toffee malt comes in. Ends with a very long herbal bitterness with a almost hot alcohol finish. It kind of reminds me of a strong DIPA.
M/D: Medium to full, smooth consistency. Carbonation is lower, but its definitely there. For being so intense and strong, the drinkability is decent. The abv is not really hidden at all, but that doesn't really matter with this one.
Not much experience with Barleywines, but I would like to try more after having this.
Serving type: bottle
