Poured into oversized tulip glass.
A- Pours a deep caramel hue. An ivory creamy head forms and sits for a bit before drawing to a thin lacing. Sits very murky in glass.
S- Lots of toasted sweet notes. A slight citrus/ crispness cuts through. Caramel and toffee abound. Smell is clean and inviting.
T- Big and bold. Similar to smell. A good level of bitterness matches the large sweet malt bill. The bitterness resembles cold coffee. Alcohol peaks through and provides a slight bite. Lots of caramel sweetness that comes as a wave. A mild sharp tang in finish. Some dark fruit notes.
M- A big beer. Slightly drying, lingers for a while. Chewy, coats most of palate. Not overpowering.
D- Some alc. but way less for a beer this high in ABV. A very enjoyable sipper.

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.
