I'm no hipster, but something tells me that said type of person would relate to the carefree barrel captain on the label.

I was expecting a somewhat flat pour, but a fine sticky reddish head developed, followed by constant fizzies coming from the bottom of the glass. Has a color like dark cola. Held up to the light, it has a nice reddish-brown tint. Seems to smell best when foamy.

Smells like dark chocolate-covered cherries. Hops and alcohol add a dry ash smell.

Hops in the barleywine was a pleasant suprise. The bottle said that there was a good mix of hops, but I thought they might just be in there for a balancing act. They are a definite presence, more on the bitter side than aromatic. As I drink it, the booze becomes more and more obvious, like lesser-filtered vodka. Still, it starts rich and complex like a good barleywine should be, but with the satisfying, saliva-inducing finish of an IPA.

A big bottle and my Friday after work is looking all good. Poured into a snifter, there is a noticeable cork pop and a lot more head than I expected from a barley wine. It is black in color and the head is huge, rocky, and light tan. Very, very nice looking. The smell is apricots, molases, vanilla, a slight hoppiness, and my mouth is watering. The taste is phenomenal, with boozy fruit, wood, vanilla and a slight banana in there somewhere. It is dry but not too much so, with a noticeable alcohol warmth as it goes down. The hops are there just at the very start and then its all wood aging from there. You taste it, you smell it, and you really get the sense that the aging process rounded off the sharp edges on this. Really, really spectacular. The mouthfeel is pleasantly carbonated and a tad sticky. Overall, I think this is a fantastic barley wine. It is not sweet like most. It could, if anything, use a bit more sweetness and a bit less woody dryness but wow, just really terrific.
