Clear golden color with a massive head that had excellant retention. The head eventually settles to a thick cap. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Fuggle hop aroma. A little spicy with what seems like yeast phenols. Hints of brown sugar and caramelized malt.

Alcohol plays a big part in the flavor with plenty of heat. Relatively weak malt flavor for a barleywine. Some flavor of sugar. Moderately bitter with some grassy flavor. Tastes more Belgian than English.

Weak body but the carbonation does its best with what it is given.

I was expecting a much better, and bigger beer. Body is labeled at 10.1% ABV which is very surprising.

A very clean look. Had a light golden amber color. Overall as with most BW had a complex smell. Where the more you smell it the more you can pick up. Spend some time and you can pick any of these: caramel malts, sweet sugars, toasted grains, light hops, apple, pear, citrus, slight alcohol, little cinnamon, doughy yeast and Toffee. A lot going on as you taste this beer. I sipped this 22oz bottle over 2 hours letting it warm up as time went buy. Maybe not a typical BW but I did in joy it over time as taste and flavors changed.

A big thanks to Aaron (laymansbeerfan) for this beer. Cheers!

Appearance – Pours a clear amber into a tulip with about a finger of slight off white head that dissipates quickly leaving spotty lacing.

Smell – Lots of caramel, toffee, slight green apple, brown sugar, white pepper, and bready malts.

Taste – Similar to the aroma. A slight bitter hop bite that is gone almost instantly. Lots of sweet caramel and toffee, mixed in with loads of breadiness, and a bit of pepper.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied to lighter, decent carbonation, which it was a bit thicker.

Overall – Not really a barleywine in my opinion. Not sure what style this is, but it is a bit overly sweet in my opinion. I will say, it is easy to drink and for being over 10% this batch there is no alcohol taste and only slight warming. If you look at it as a winter warmer rather than a barleywine, I like it more. A decent beer on this cold night.

Poured from 22 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness Chalice glass. 2011 Bottle.

Appearance: Pours a deep and clear golden copper with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of white head that quickly fade into a a few thin patches. Lacing is moderate.

Smell: Aroma of caramel malts, toffee, light citrus hops, and a very noticeable presence of sugar. Fairly bready and the hop presence is very light. A hint of alcohol. What stands out the most here is caramelized sugars.

Taste: A sweet mix of caramel malts and wheat grains with a hint of toffee and citrus. Lots of caramelized sugar. A little bit of earthy hop bitterness towards the finish. Fairly bready throughout. Sweet but not cloying.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Somewhat syrupy and sticky. Very smooth as the alcohol isn't really felt.

Overall: A good beer overall. Not really what I would expect from a barleywine but a interesting version.
