4.18/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: This beer pours a burnt mahogony, almost brown liquid with a tan head. The head rose up to about an inch then disapated rather quickly leaveing behind a desent amount of laceing.
Smell: Aromatic candy-like malts, slight fruity esters suggesting apple, sweet caramel, a notion that the alcohol is on the high side. This has a barleywine character.
Taste: Very sweet malt bill, hops seem to play a lesser role in this beer. The alcohol is definitely potent that has a little burning sensation on its way down. Light cranberry without the tartness, slight hint of cherries and sour green apple blended with sweet red apple as well. This has a very strong late bitterness. Nice complexity!
Mouthfeel: Alcoholic vapors are running wild, thick and oily on my tongue, super full body, seems to high carbonated. Leaves a slick chewy film clinging to every side of my palate.
Drinkability: This is an exeptional beer for sure. If you have not had this yet, it is worth the try. My opinion: This beer could just about be classified as a barleywine.
Serving type: bottle
