I have been hearing about this beer for so long.
Pours a red ruby, maybe slightly lighter, but the room is kind of dark. THe head is very foamy and thick, suprisingly for a beer with a huge ABV.
Hints of floral scents and sweet malts. A little bit of a fruit smell, and a definate alcohol smell.
Very strong and powerful, something you have to drink kind of slowly to appreciate all of the different flavors going on, plus it will knock you on your ass if you slam this one.Tons of hops biting your tastebuds and holding on as the sweet malt kind of passes by. Definately taste the fruit, alcohol and the malt, but mostly dominated by the hops.(I'm in Heaven)
This beer is only for the serious. I would not try this if you have never had a barley wine or a strong ale.
Good damn job Sierra Nevada.
