Tasted on 2/11/10 at The Ginger Man in NYC.
Draught poured into a 12oz. snifter.
Cola colored with a thin pale head and spotty lacing. Chocolate cake batter on the nose with a hint of malt vinegar and herbal hops.
The taste was much more mellow then my nose lead me to assume. There is a cocoa malt sweetness upfront with roasted malt and a kind of pretzel like bready quality. A very noticable piney hops presence shows up toward the finish and remains. The alcohol is definitely there, trademark of the style but it is surprizing subtle. Overall, a delicious well balanced barley wine.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours out a slightly murky brown body with a thin head. Smells of caramel, dried fruit, figs, piloncillo, and PNW hops. Tastes sweet; lots of caramelized malts. Very toasty: more so than I would have imagined from the taste. Aftertaste has some roasty coffee notes. Hops are prominent and resinous/grassy. Mouthfeel is fullish with some tingly carbonation. Overall, this is a solid barleywine, but nothing to go crazy about.
