3.8/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 750ml corked and caged into snifter.

A. Pours a pretty well caronated 3 finger off white colored head. Thick lacing. Great retention. Color is so dark brown it is almost black.

S. Bourbon, oak, raisins, brown sugar, hops, vanilla, roasted malt. Has an earthy aroma, and quite a bit of hop punch surprisingly enough. Has a bit of heat coming through that is mixed with some resiny hop aroma.

T. Brown sugar, raisins, caramel, a bit of oaky vanilla. Not much hop punch, unlike the smell.
Taste seems a bit unrefined. Has a bit of alcohol heat on the back of the tongue.

M. Medium/full bodied. Full carbonation. Finishes sweet.

O. Ok beer. Seems like this beer is not ready at this point in time. Not a lot of barrel aged flavor. Barleywine seems to pack a bit of a hop punch that mixes with some of the other flavors and aromas going on.

Beer #42 in my great Utah Brew Hunt.

This barleywine is surprisingly smooth, even though there is a burning alcohol tone to it at the same time. It seems like a very good interpretation of the style. Very well rounded, smooth, good flavor profile. If only I could live in a place for more than a year, I would love to lay some of these down.

The only detractor, if I am going to pick one out, is that it is a bit boozy and hot.

3.65/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass.

A-Deep mahogony brown with a creamy tan head. Sticky lace on all sides and throughout consumption. Quite a cloudy look to the beer. When held up to the light you can see a slight translucent dark red hue.

S-Quite complex...yet simple. One thing I have to note here: after the initial pour, a strong metallic smell overwhelmed my nose. As the beer warmed, the irony smell went away. Once that happened I could smell molasses and plum with a touch of sweet caramel malt.

T-Quite a strong, warming alcohol taste. There were tastes of molasses, plum, caramel malt, raisins, and there was a nice balanced sweet/bitter in the back of my throat.

M-Heavy-bodied, light carbonation, and maple syrup-esque.

Overall, great brew for a cold winter night to sip and enjoy (although I drank this in the fall). Not a "wow, I will buy it again" type of brew. Everything seemed somewhat balanced, except the smell. Perhaps it was a bad batch? It almost ruined the beer for me. On the flip side, I do recommend this brew if you want a warm feeling in your belly and a numb brain from the high ABV. I will buy it one more time to see if my perception changes. If it doesn't "wow" me a second time, I won't buy it again.

3.6/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a snifter.

A - Very cloudy ruby brown with creamy two-finger off-white head. Sticky lacing.

S - Caramel, butterscotch, wood astringency, and toffee.

T - Much less sweet than the nose would indicate. Dominant flavors are oak, raisin, and toffee. Some dark fruits come out as it warms. Also some suprising graniness. While it tastes good, this beer is not very smooth. Finishes with some metallic bitterness, which is kind of distracting. ABV pretty noticeable.

M - Full bodied, and slightly oily/syrupy. Low carbonation.

O - A decent barleywine, but a few off flavors keep it from becoming a great one. Probably not going to be a repeat buy for me.
