3.69/5 rDev -10.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3.5
audible sizzle, deep brown with ruby edges, the head recedes but holds as a nice film over the lake slightly curved up toward the sides of the glass, definite legs showing from the higher ABV, lacing is not great but that is not really a hallmark of the style (and the ABV of course cuts in on this dance), nice slow roll of bubbles, very on point for the style
definitely boozy but not over the top drunk homeless stank boozy, has that slight sour/tart aroma derivative of the style, some warm maple notes underneath, slightly woodsy, roasted grain, nice
initial burst of mild carbonation gives way to heft, has hints of the usual barleywine suspects but then it turns, very malty/grainy, it has a definite vinous nature to it but does not finish that way (but it never quite leaves either), the ABV is sneaky super stealth here, you mainly feel it rather than taste it at all, you get really bready dry notes in the after taste from the aging, velvet smooth mouth feel is nice, the highlight is definitely how smooth this is
smooth but somehow the flavor does not thrill me. it's good but not a world beater, they did a great job with the malt here backing up the kicked up ABV

Pour is dark chestnut with ruby edges and a light brown head. Nose is lots of caramel and dark fruits, a stale herbal note and a bit of booze with a hint of metal. Taste is similar, lots of caramel, brown sugar, some dark fruits, heavy alcohol and a bit of an off metallic note in the finish. Very full bodied and chewy with moderate carbonation.
