3.16/5 rDev -17.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
12oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog goblet
A: A very nice dark brown that shows a bit of amber when put up to the light. It is barely see through and almost opaque. The lacing is ok as well.
S: There is big sweet malty smell with a tinge of hops that come through to complement it. The hop smell is very piney and full of resin but barely comes through the sweet malt base.
T: The sweetness is masked very well and barely there. I get barely any malt, it is completely melded with the hops and is quite piney, a lot like an IPA. The closest IPA would either be a black or rye IPA. The aftertaste is a bit weird, it is bitter but like a messed up IPA aftertaste. You get the bitterness but there is something else there that makes it more pronounced and strong, but not in a good way.
M: The carbonation is quite minimal but you can feel a slight fuzziness throughout with only a touch of crispness as it touches your lips and at the finish.
O: It is a weird barleywine. It is heavily hopped and tastes like a weird IPA, but the barleywine comes through a little bit and kind of ruins it. The malty sweetness backbone tastes really odd and kind of ruins it. I would say it tastes like a bad Bigfoot. The aftertaste is no good.

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.
