look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear deep amber with a modest khaki head that leaves a ring of foam.

Deep caramel malt, raisins, bruised cherries form the aroma.

Flavor reveals more deeply caramelized notes, big malt backbone. Hops are fairly bitter, but not overly so.

Thick body, minimal carbonation, full alcohol warmth.

On the sweet side. Fairly hot, as well.

Bottled 3/12/14

Pours an effervescent orange with a finger of cream colored head. Very good lacing & head retention

S: A little bit of breadyness. leafy hops as this warms & orange peels & faint boozey notes

T: Breadyness, dryness, plumyness & a bit of toffee up front & touch of tangerine. Toffee & woody hops as this warms, a bit of pineapple as well. Finishes with pineapple, passion fruit, leafy, woody, & herbal hops & dry

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, good balance

A decent barley wine, seems as much an English Barley Wine as an American... Good, but too expensive to buy again...

I don't generally like barleywines but this one is worth getting- well balanced malt sweetness with a little dryness from the hops. Surprisingly not cloying as most barleywines are. There's some dark fruit in there but nothing overwhelming. Just a nice warming beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: copper, amber. Clear. Nice swath of reddish head
Smell: pleasant enough though not very rich. Some grapefruit. Malty base.
Taste: much like the nose. Pleasant enough though not a lot happening. Grapefruit and malt, a slightly bitter finish.
Overall: to sum up a good, not great American barley.
