3.64/5 rDev -6.2%
Appearance - The beer poured a light copper color with a modest head crowning the glass.
Smell - The beer smells like a new leather jacket. One way or the other, the smell does not affect my desire to drink this beer.
Taste - My first thought was how bubbly this barleywine is. There is some sweetness and mild hops before a dry aftertaste. For an American barelywine, the hops were hidden. There also was not any distinct measure of sweetness.
Mouthfeel - The beer coats the tongue with the vigor of a barleywine. This allows the dry aftertaste to linger nicely.
Overall - This was not a bad example of the style, but very little about it caught my attention.

Bottle from late 2012. Bottlecap seal ragged, deteriorated. Would not age this any longer. Appearance is ruby red, cloudy with a small khaki head. Looks nice. Aroma is lush when cold: malty sweetness and hops, reminscent of a mandarin orange. When warm, there is a plasticy odor. Taste alternates between malty (front) and hoppy (sides, finish). Some nutty notes in the background. Again, when warm there is a plasticy taste, perhaps from bottlecap? Mouthfeel is medium, a bit creamy. Notwithstanding the off flavor, it's a tasty complex beer.
