one of my first barley wines . . .
2012 bottle poured into a sniffer style
A: hazy deep orange. big head, but was poured relatively warm, so to be expected. very nice lacing the whole way thru
S: can't quite place the smell , but enticing, if not a bit boozy since it's warmer than i'd usually pour. i can see why a few here mention leather, i can sense a faint bit.
T: smooth, surprisingly, since i usually don't care for some of the strong ones as they warm. the malts seem entirely more smooth and complex than what i'm used to, which i like. hops seemed mutedi'm looking forward to putting a few of these on the shelf and trying them next year, lots of potential.
O: in spite of a less-than-fair initial try, this did very well. i'm looking forward to experiencing it aged and served properly.
update dec 2013 - still awesome :)
