22oz bottle into a snifter
Vintage 2013

A: Pours a hazy, nearly opaque orangish brown with 1 fingers width of light tan head. Head dissipates down fairly quickly, and leaves a fair amount of lacing.

S: Typical American barleywine notes with candied sugar, caramel/toffee, a nutty character, and some piney and citrus hops.

T: Fair amount of hops with piney and citrus rind bitterness, coupled with lots of malt flavors including caramel/toffee and burnt sugar.

M/D: Medium body, appropriately low carbonation, pretty smooth, ABV well restrained, drinkability is good.

O: Overall, a really good American Barleywine.
