3.48/5 rDev -6.5%
22 oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a tulip
Pours a very hazy, almost murky dark orange color. Small layer of off white colored head. Average looking lace and head retention.
Earthy wood, lots of sweet caramel, sugary, a hint of like a pellet hop.
Sweet sugary caramel, woody, slightly earthy malts. Defiantly some hop bitterness, but not huge hop flavors. A bit of some citrus and a little of that dank pellet hop flavor.
Fairly thick mouthfeel with a lighter carbonation.
As far as barley wines go, this is just a bit too average. I expected more from cigar city.

3.76/5 rDev +1.1%
Poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter. Bottle dated 2/5/2014.
A: Pours a cloudy butterscotch brown with a small one finger light tan head. Some minimal lacing. Much larger head with better retention on second pour.
S: A nice mix of caramel, butterscotch, and piney hops. A hint of citrus fruits.
T: Punch of bitter hops combined with sweet malts. Honey, caramel, apricots, and biscuits.
M: Full bodied and lightly carbonated. Finish is fairly sweet with linger bitterness.
O: Classic American barleywine. Easy drinking and enjoyable. Not my all time favorite of the group, but very solid brew.
