Bottle to glass

A- deep murky orangish amber, looks like the color of real natural honey, not the light colored processed stuff.

S- caramel grains and light biscuity pale grains with a punch of in your face hopiness. Dank earthy tobacco.

T- hops. Caramel malt good combo. Sweet tobacco, some resin, earthy grass. Alcohol peeks in quickly and then is dominated by a sweet hoppy finish.

M- a bit. Thin for this style but, perfect to my liking.

O- Overall this is an incredible double ipa. I expect a bit more heat from alcohol in a barley wine. That said it is simply fantastic. Hop heads delight!

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

Appearance is tawny with minimal clarity and almost no head. Some lacing exists. Smells is straight up grain with a heavy leaning towards the sweet side of things. Molasses, grapes, and grain. Taste is more of the sweet malts with some hops to balance things out. Finish is not super sweet, definite notes of maple and grapes. Mouthfeel is moderate with mild carbonation. Overall, this is a sweet barleywine that could use some more hops.

$7.50 for 10oz, served in a tulip
Sampled 28AUG12

[A] Served a dark burgundy brown color with a finger high sandstone colored cap. Creamy texture. Well retained and while receding, a complete wall of thick foam coats the glass. When backlit, the body glows a russet-orange hue. Semi opaque. Well-above average lacing.

[S] Ripe with dates, rich with caramelized figs. Honey, heavily rendered caramel, brown sugar and butterscotch.

[T] The same dark fruit characteristic mentioned above are everlasting on the palate. The flavor finishes with a more earthy, tobacco-laden, tea leaf-life quality.

[M] The body is full, thick, chewy and everything a 10.3% barleywine should be. Carbonation is a bit above average for the style, showing its strength on the latter half of the sip. This promotes a relatively clean finish, although a sticky resinous coating remains.

[O] I'm surprised to see that this beer is a collaboration with Westbrook. But stoked! Not being the biggest Evil Twin fan, I ordered this on the strength of Westbrook's name alone. Overall, I was impressed but not blown away.

Had this on tap. Surprisingly available in Iowa for such a unique brewery.

Pours a cloudy if not muddy brown with light tan head. Good lacing.

Nose is hops and spicy.

Taste is hops(of course) but earthy and spicy. This is a nice twist for the crowded field. Malt is also balancing the drink. I didn't notice a lot of fruit in this one.

Mouth feel is really nice; creamy yet carbonated. Overall, this is a great barleywine and a unique one at that.
