look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance - Beautiful redhead color with a thick head. Chunky lacing.
Smell - The familiar smell of hops with a note of toffee/caramel/prune sweetness.
Taste - The sweetness of the malt blends well with the crispness of the hops. Oh, then there's the warming of the high alcohol content. That's gonna stay around for awhile!
Mouthfeel - Thick and oily.
Drinkability - A definite sipper. Excellent barleywine example that will also satisfy hopheads. Not too many ales you can say that about.
