3.76/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottled on 10/12/12. Poured into a snifter.

Dark brown pour with a buttermilk head. Elevated-height pour yielded a 3/4" head that has nearly stuck. It's still here after 90 seconds or so. I like the dark look.

Dark fruits and some hops. Grapefruit, raisin, toffee, citrus rind, booze, minor caramel notes, and some very light pith. Straightforward and good.

Tastes sweeter than the nose hinted at. The hops are still very fresh and oily, but there's a good heap of malt sugar trapped within. Notes of bright roastiness, dry date flavors, booze, crisp toffee, and pine/citrus hops. Definitely, picking up some grapefruit rind amidst the malt smack. Beer turns out to be more balanced than I'd suspect. Clearly an American representation. Hints of tea-like tannin, noteworthy when speaking of the finish. Relative freshness speaks of the hops that punch.

Drinks with some swooshy heft. The body is plus-plus. Carbonation is no stranger, either. Got some scruffiness.

A nice little barleywine. Maybe it's lacking defining character, but it tastes carefully crafted. Wouldn't choose it above others that are easily-attainable, but I woudn't knock it either.

3.74/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
