Poured at 45* into a newcastle glass
A- Dark amber with a reddish hue. Pours with a creamy, one-finger head that slowly fades and leaves copious lacing. a mesmerizing brew.
S- Pine hops and malt. The smell is nice, but doesn't do the flavor justification.
T- Huge beer. This is one of the most flavor-packed beers I have ever drank. Lots of malt that is smacked down by a huge hop bitterness. There are few beers that rival the bitterness of fresh Bigfoot in my book. Pine hops and a sweet berry-like malt flavor round out the taste. The bitterness lingers.
M- smooth and refreshing. alcohol is faint, hop bite is dry and sticks to the back of the tongue.
O- just a great beer all around. it has become a staple in the fridge (during release times) and can be drank during hot or cold weather, which makes it particularly appealing in the state of Missouri...where you never know what weather will hit you. But keep in mind, this isn't for the faint of heart. If you have never had a barleywine, don't let the name fool you. This beer will kick you in the Fallopian tubes.
