A: Pours a dark copper color with a lasting half finger tan head that leaves some soapy and sticky lace after each sip.
S: Heavy malt presence, some faint mango, caramel, a touch of vanilla and some golden raisin. Not intense in the way of hops, but they're tucked in there.
T: I'm not the biggest American barleywine fan, but this is surprisingly good. A big blanket of malt and some light pine resin throughout. Touches of toffee and a bit of pine on the finish, trailing into a lingering pine resin bite.

Bottle pour at the Bootlegger's 5th Anniversary Celebration held at The Muckenthaler Cultural Center in Fullerton, CA.
Pours a murky dark honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with a candied citrus zest flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some great aromas and tasty flavors.
