On tap at the Split Thy Skull event at Mugs Ale House in Brooklyn, New York.
Appearance: Opaque orange-amber with thick tan head. Effervescence was clearly visible as tiny bubbles of carbonation were percolating to the top. It was looking at me saying "drink me" so I did cause that's what I do (Note that the comment "cause that's what I do" is a tribute to slander).
Smell: Glorious apricot aroma. Hops aroma was also present.
Taste: Hops flavor up front along with a very fruity apricot-like flavor. Sweet malt flavor then follows, along with cloves, and finishes with a hop bitterness. Aftertaste is very complex, first dominated by apricot, but banana was also detected. Lots of flavors going on here.
Mouthfeel: Syrupy with good carbonation.
Drinkability: So delicious its almost quaff-able, even for a barley wine.
Comments: My favorite barley wine at the event. What flavors! The aftertaste lasts forever. Oh my! Woof Woof!
Serving type: on-tap
