Appearance is dark brown with a light brown head.
Aroma is complex for sure. Nutty, dark fruits, caramel and toffee, roasty.
Taste is the same but with a hop punch. More nutty and pretty hoppy.
This is an introductory barleywine for hop heads I feel.
Mouthfeel is medium to thin with some lingering bitterness.
I see why people love this. I liked it but I've had way better barleywines.
I don't really love the hop inclusion.
