Wow! The Aroma of this beer is amazing. Sweet caramel at first then it fades to a beautiful bouket of floral hops then that fades to toffee notes.
It pours a deep, hazy brownish dark red ale. The tan creamy head stays a little while and leaves in its trail lush lacing.
The flavor has lots of caramel notes and a nice in your face bitterness that lingers well. Dark fuits like prunes and also notes of bitter oranges.
It's a very smooth ale for the alcohol content. Not sting at all. It's hidden like a snake in its den.
A quite lovely Barleywine indeed. Thanks again Great Divide. The Lord bless the hop harvest.
