Looks like apple cider with a tall, apple-tinted head. Pretty great lacing.
Smells like a big, malty, barleywine. Smells deep and rich with sweetness. From the smell, I expect this to drink like a milkshake.
Tastes like a big and slightly sharp barleywine. Caramel, toast, and toffee. Then in the finish, there's a sharper bit of spicy, boozy, hotness. That's kind of nice. It's pretty tightly carbonated. Very thick, though. Like a carbonated milkshake. Leaves a very nice hop resin in the mouth too. The hops blend in with the taste, almost overwhelmed by the huge dose of malt sweetness. But they're there for sure, and that sticky mouth will remind you of it.
