Pours a golden amber with tan head.
Smells of bread, biscuit, caramel, sweet, some hop comes through.
Sweet front, almost fruity but bitterness lingers to help balance out the sweetness. It is complex and sweet. The hop flavor compliments the sweet malt.
Chewy mouthfeel that is sweet but not too heavy.
This is a big beer with a sweet, barleywine character and enough hops to make it complex and worthwhile.
Pours a deep amber/red with an off-white head.
Smells of caramel/crystal malt, some roast, biscuit, cracker, pine and spicy hop notes, raisin and fig also comes through.
Tastes of up front bread/biscuit and caramel that fades into a spice/citrus almost grapfruit hop character and ends on a bitter kick that lingers with sweetness and caramelly complexity. There are notes of roast, fig, and raisin that are quite subtle and nice. Great flavors all around.
Heavy body with medium to low carbonation. The alcohol is well hidden but present, which gives it a barleywine-esque quality.
