3.53/5 rDev -13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks to wedge421 for this.
A: Dark amber/copper color. Fairly clear. Three quarters of a finger off white head with decent retention and good lacing.
S: Alcohol is very in your face. Toasted caramel and toffee. A earthy hoppiness comes through. Overall on the sweeter side.
T: Toasted caramel and toffee upfront. Earthy hop flavors and a light bitterness in the middle. Sweet caramel and toffee come back in the finish along with a medium alcohol bite.
M: Medium light body. Higher carbonation. A light alcohol burn.
O: A decent Barleywine. Alcohol comes through way to much. I'd like a better hop profile.

3.96/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
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.
