2012 poured into a tulip.
A: Deep amber with red to it when light is behind the glass. Poured a thick and creamy head that retained nicely. Above average lacing.
S: Mostly pine hop aromas dominate the nose. Alcohol is noticeable as well.
T: Big hop action on the front end, then a light dose of caramel malts and dark fruit flavors balances. Alcohol warms on the way down while the strong hop bitterness finishes off the palate.
M: Average carbonation with a dry finish that sticks out.
O: Glad to finally try this classic barleywine. As with many SN beers, the hops are the star. Next step for me is to see how it does with some age.
Serving type: bottle
