Never tried a barley wine, so I was excited to try this one.
A - Thick. Dark reddish brown color. Small head, no lacing. It's a beast in appearance!
S - The thing that stands out to me at first is the sweet smell. toffee-like notes with carmel peaking its head up through the sweetness. Malty. Little hops.
T - The alcohol hits you up front. Nice amount of carmelly malts. Very creamy feel and taste. Maybe a little vanilla hints.
O - I just started laughing when I first tasted this beer, not because it was bad, but because it was so different. Granted it was my first barley wine. But it was a sipper, for sure. It was nice. I see myself daring a buddy to chug a glass for 10$. Something that would be worth 10$, but he wouldn't get to enjoy the beer itself. Bummer! This sucker's a beast! I couldn't and wouldn't drink more than one at a time. Two in one night would be death! Very different from others. Looking forward to trying different barley wines in the near future. In fact, I think I'm going to pick a couple next week, when I get back in town.
