Poured from the bomber into a - chalice. Not my first choice of glassware - but my trusty snifter and goblet were both broken in the SAME DAY!
Amber, honey color with a hint of red. Light amber-tan head that is quite forthcoming, thought it tapers off fairly quickly.
Rich, powerful nose on this one. Caramel malt, brandy-like booze, some citrus and spice. Some piney hops.
Caramel malt, intense warming alcohol, spice and fruitiness. Nice use of hops in this brew. This is what you would hope Stone's Old Guardian Barleywine would be like - intense unrelenting malt, but self-evident and undeniable hops keeping the brew honest. Hops bring about notes of pine and grapefruit. Aftertaste is a powerful combination of sweet caramel malt essences, booze and hop bitterness. Good God.
Smooth and full-bodied. Carbonation keeps this one from turning into a syrupy mess - it is just right. This beer makes its presence known.
A phenomenal brew. Imagine what would happen if your standard American Adjunct Lager stumbled across this beast in a dark alley.
