look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: A murky hazy ruby tinged brown body with a half finger white head that becomes a halo of lace after about five minutes.

S: It has deep caramel and toffee aromas. There is surprisingly not alcohol bite in the nose.

T: Incredibly rich and not overly complex. It starts with a rich caramel flavor then transitions to a deep toffee. There are earthy and almost bourbon flavors present throughout.

M: Nice heavy silk body with perfect carbonation.

O: Amazing Barleywine. Well worth actively seeking out.

4oz pour at Stone Bistro poured into a stemmed glass.

A - Pours a coppery amber color with a small tan head. Creamy textured thick collar that leaves behind sparse lacing on the glass.

S - Caramel and toffee up front mixed with brown sugar...a bit nutty. Alcohol is noticeable but not overpowering. Smells super smoth.

T - Brown sugar...light molasses. Burnt sugar and lots of caramel. Mid level bitterness to balance things out. Mixed in is some mild orangey citrus.

M - Medium body with a tingly lower level carbonation. Really smooth...sweet but balanced well - the hops still hold up enough.

O - Overall holding up well. Very good...a 4oz pour is just about right - could be dangerous at higher volumes. Glad to have the opportunity to try this one - thought it wasn't possible.
