look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Rich chestnut color with a puffy white head.

Aroma is rich with oily hops and tobacco. Herbal and piercing.

Taste is very sweet upfront (caramelized pineapple) and very bitter the rest of the way (pine resins). A bit heavy-handed on the hops. The finish is a little too bitter and boozy.

Good mouthfeel for a barleywine. Smooth and well-carbonated. Rolls over the tongue nicely.

Alcohol is tasted as the glass warms up a bit. Stinging on certain sips. I drank my 10 oz. down pretty fast, but could not envision having any more.

I would probably try this again, but maybe next time with some cheese and bread.
