Pours a deep mahogany color. Decent head that lasts about average duration. Nose is sweet and hoppy, fruity, piney, hints of aged rum. There's more here that's eluding me, lots of complexity.
Huge taste, there's almost too much here to describe. Very sweet with a lot of smooth dark malt flavors, but with a hoppy bite to posit a great counterpoint. Rich malt, carmelized sugars, and alcohol vie with earthy, fruity, and grassy hops for domination of the tastebuds. Definitely a standout, whether you put it in the strong ale category or consider it a barleywine.
Mouthfeel is big, creamy, smooth, with good carbonation. Drinkability is good for such a big complex ale.
