3.49/5 rDev -16.5%
Poured into a beer glass.
A - Pours a somewhat murky amber color (I poured it a little fast and there was a reasonable amount of sediment). The half finger of head slowly dissipates to a fine lacing.
S - Very hoppy with some malt and carmel in the background.
T - Somewhat off pine/resinous hop flavor up front. A little bit of malt in there but mostly hops, hop and more hops.
M - Medium mouth feel with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O - An average American style barley wine. Not very well balanced. Maybe in 3 years the hops would have dropped out some but here and now not very pleasing and I like barley wines.

4.4/5 rDev +5.3%
12oz 2013 bottle poured into a BFM globe.
A- Murky brown. No head or lacing, some slow bubbles, looks flat.
S- Honey, malt, toffee, leather, bitter hops deep within, and some vanilla. Smell is muted but nice.
T- Sweet malt juice with a slight hint of bitter hops. So good. It has all you want in the flavor. Sweet honey, vanilla, toffee, leather, tobacco and bitter soap with a crisp pine tar finish.
M- No carbonation, medium body with a viscus mouthfeel. No sign of high ABV with a good crisp finish that lingers on the palate.
O- I've had it aged and now fresh and its world class either way. What a great beer. Worth finding and aging or drinking fresh!!
