4.41/5 rDev +13.7%
Pours dark amber nearly brown and clear in color. Head is thin, about half a finger and off white in color.
Smell is great has some crisp dark fruity hop aromas mainly cherries along with a sweet malty body that complements the fruity hops nicely.
Taste is great and follows the nose. There is a fruity and herbal hop bitterness forward that is followed by a big sticky sweet malty body. Malt and hops work nicely together.
Mouthfeel is good big sticky feel from the malt and hops is cut by moderate carbonation. Mild bitterness cuts sweetness and keeps this a good sipping beer.

3.8/5 rDev -2.1%
Dark amber-caramel color. It has a heavy looking body and a huge dense tan head. Great lacing.
Piney and herbal hop aromas with brown sugar. Nice smells, just not very aromatic. I really had to huff this one to stimulate the olfactory nerve.
Super bitter with mild sense of astringency. Herbal, piney, caramel and brown sugar.
Hefty body moderate carbonation, mouth puckering.
Overall, a decent barley wine. Hopped up but overly bitter and astringent.

A: Traditional amber color
T: Slightly boozy with offsetting bitterness.
M: Not as full as I like to see in a barley wine,. Light carbonation.
0: What I would expect from Half Acre, with great hop taste and smell. Not the best example of the style, but a great barely wine for a hop-head.

4.08/5 rDev +5.2%
Bought this thing for $11 bucks last Christmas in Chicago.
Served in a "Game of Thrones" glass.
A: Poured a murky, dark amber color, with a sticky off-white head that stuck around for a bit.
S: Unusually hop component, for sure. Sorta reminded me of Victory "Yakima Glory." Earthy hop component, assertive, and with a few Flintstone vitamins thrown in.
T: I can't imagine trying this one fresh. Hell, it was hoppy enough as it was. Still, a good bit of caramel, red velvet cake batter, and aged SN Bigfoot.
M: Great. Low carbonation, for sure, with enough lacing to kill a bird……. at least. After aging for over a year, this was basically an English BW.
O: For $11/bomber, I thought this was totally worth it and then some.
