look: 2.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dark, opaque, and amber pour with a low off white head. Head retention is fair. Danger: floatie alert. Not appealing.

Aroma: Caramel malt notes up front. Moderate dark fruit esters like plum, fig, and raisins that billow out of the glass.

Flavor: More caramel flavors up front with a firm and earthy American bitterness that quickly follows. Balance is to the hoppy firm bitterness. The finish is bitter and dry. The aftertaste lingers with peppery alcohol flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Definite alcohol warming. No creaminess or astringency noted.

Overall impression: A big and boozy American Barleywine. I could have used some filtering or lagering to get rid of the floaties. Also, some age could have relieved some of the ETOH "hotness". I decent shot but for the price, I'll stick to the American standards (i.e. Bigfoot).

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Pours an amber-brown color, lighter mahogony, glistens when held to light and fairly transparent. Half finger thick off white head, soapy and bubbly. Excellent display of lacing on glass.
Aroma- Decadent and sugary dark winter fruits, rich fruitcake, toasted caramel and toffee. Some sherry notes poke through, tinge of hop bitterness, slight alcohol.
Taste- Huge sugary sweetness, some sweet fruitiness as well. Raisins, sugar plums, dates, brighter berries/cherries. Bitterness takes over on back end, piney hops, slight citrus, dry port like finish.
Feel- Medium mouthfeel, very sticky and sweet. Dry on the finish with a lower amount of carbonation.
Overall- Even with a year age the hops are still very noticeable. Tale of two beers, up front there is a huge sweetness, fruitiness, but midway through the beer transitions into a hop bitterness and dry, oaky, port like finish. Rather enjoyable to see the beer transform like that with every sip, a unique type of balance in that there are two extemes going on. Enjoyable sipper.

12oz bottle dated 03/12/14. Pours a murky medium brown with virtually no head. Almost no lacing. The aroma is boozey with some caramel, dark fruits, bread and a hint of citrus. The taste is caramel and wheat bread with some raisins, plums, and orange peel. Boozey with a noticeable alcohol presence, of course. Still I'm surprised the ABV isn't higher. Woody and boozey finish. Heavy mouthfeel. Overall, solid choice I'd grab again.

Pours nice rich Amber with a light head. Very good barely wine. Not overpowering. Not as complex as would've like from evil twin. Which is one of my favorite Brewers.
