a: Clear dark ruby with a finger thick offwhite head which receded to patchy surface foam and spotty lacing.

s: Dark ripe fruit

t: Dark ripe fruit followed by a powerful hop bite. Bitterness lingers at the sides of the tongue and alcohol burns the upper throat. Dry to bitter finish. Some ash notes emerge later.

m: Medium with good body and moderate carbonation tingle.

o: A true hoppy barleywine Vermonster. 100 IBUs in a good dark fruity base.

2008 vintage

A- poured a one finger thick light tan head into a snifter. The body is a dark, ruddy brown.
S- toffee, caramel, some chocolate.
T- toffee, caramel, slight spiciness in the finish and there is still a little heat.
M- creamy and slick.
O- nice take on this style, good complexity.
