A - Nice brown / amber malt, clean white porous head.

S - Sweet malt, caramel, slight vanilla / oak, light grassy notes.

T/M - A sweet creamy malt body with a hoppy/bitter finish.

O - I wanted to try one fresh so I can compare it to one that ages. This was a bit hot and hoppy, which I hope will smooth out. I'm still trying to decide how I feel about some of the extra hoppy American barleywines. Some people will read the label, because why not? Prost!
