Bottled 3/12/14.

Pours an almost opaque super dark reddish-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, citrus zest, alcohol, and slight vegetal onion and garlic hop aromas . Taste is much the same with toasted malt, brown sugar, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a mild vegetal hop quality in the aroma that disappears as the beer warms up.

12oz bottle into goblet

A: Leather looking brew that produces a one-finger light white head. Carbonation appears mild, and the beer has some translucence that allows it a mellow glow. No visible sediment, body looks medium to light.

S: Wort smelling, tea leaves, unabated sweet malt, bits of caramel, earth and damp wood – syrupy sap, fresh pine/maple. A behind the scene hop aroma lurks along with some sweet esters of black cherry and date. Very candied, very sweet.

T: Upfront sweet malty, toting rich caramel and lots of dirt/earth. Spicy, hints of cinnamon carried along by the powerful presence of dark fruits. Some character of roasted nuts, candied fig, prunes, and plum wash over throughout. The middle mouth is sweet with some nice zest, tangy apple and pecans; resinous hop comes in almost equalizing the mean sweet malt. Boozy heat kicks up while the drier malt comes in, bready and a touch of citrus close down the show.

M: Full body, kinda sticky, sweet, somewhat syrupy. Aftertaste is warming and lingering with bits of citrus zest, and nuttiness. Carbonation is fine, but minimal.

O: Pretty nice drinking beer, hoppy, sweet, full bodied. I’m a novice barleywine drinker, but this is pleasing. I might like to see a little more balance, but overall this is solid.

Tan head. Color is a copper amber.

Flavor profile: Sticky hops. Juicy and hop resiny. Dank, weedy, and piney. Caramel and toffee malts. Tropical fruits. Pineapple and mango with some apple.

Mouthfeel: Sticky with some bitterness. Medium to full bodied. Ends a little sticky.

Overall, a very enjoyable beer. I love how hoppy this beer is. I'd definitely drink this one fresh.

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.

Serving type: on-tap
