Pours rather dark for a barleywine, a cloudy mahogany with a thin head/ring. Aroma is malty and syrupy but with noticeable hops.

Taste is only faintly malty, more roasted flavors like a stout. Lots of hops bitterness, quite dry. No alcohol flavors but that isn't surprising; it is just barely within the style guidelines.

Mouthfeel is rather watery, especially for what is intended as a barleywine. Not knowing, I might call this a fairly robust porter. I'm not sure this one works for me.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a great dark rich cola color with a nice thick foamy head.

T: Taste is of much the same with the addition of some dark fruits(figs plums prunes and raisins.

M: Mouthfeel is a medium to full bodied deliciousness slight lacing down glass.

O: Very decent beer, like the fact that you can drink more than one with a slightly lower ABV % than most barley wines
