Copper small head retention. Cloudy
S. alcohol is present. Otherwise get barrel old grape smell.
T. Good. Bananas up front. Alchohol is hidden very well compared to the smell. Carmelized banana. Fruity but not too much. I like how the flavor profile is smoothly transitioned from one stage to the next. Fairly seamless
M. Fairly thin for barley wine of this style. Not a bad thing though. Carbonation overpowers the malty syrupy smell but just enough to hide the alchohol up front. Otherwise carbonation moves out of the way for the good flavor
O like this barley wine. Very formidable. Job well done on a solid beer.

3.96/5 rDev -2.5%

Served in a snifter glass.
Appearance: Purely transparent dark brown, medium head that comes off slightly light meaning that it dissolves just after one sip that an original rise of about a finger's length. Oh by the way it's off-white.
Smell: Has a sweet scent, almost like a toffee scent.
Taste: Sweet light coffee feel, not bitter really more bean type of taste with a twist of toffee that feels a bit sweet. Cafe con leche anyone?
Mouth: Medium bodied brew, it is sticky but not overwhelming like I would prefer it to be. I have been spoiled with other English barleywines and this one just comes up a notch or two above average.
Overall: Worth trying at least once but not something I would go hunting for. There's a lot better out there but you would need to really hunt. If this one comes along before hand grab it. It won't disappoint but I am not going to over-hype something to just let you down.
