One of the best barley wines I have had in a while, and easily one of the ten best made in the U.S. that I have ever tried. This is one of my favorite styles, one that I enjoyed often when living in Britain. I feel many craft breweries lose the essence of this style looking for innovation, whereas this brew strikes a perfect balance between ambition and tradition. A really satisfying barley wine.

Poured from 750 ml bottle into Old Guardian glass. No visible bottle date.

A: Pours a deep chestnut brown with slight tan head that settled immediately to a thin ring around the edge. Zero lacing.

S: Caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg.

T: Sweet caramel malts mixed with a subtle spice mix. Some cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. Maybe a touch of clover honey.

M: Fairly thick with an almost syrup quality to it leaving a lingering sweetness of the tongue. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Very lightly carbonated.

O: Enjoyable but missing that little something to make it outstanding.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 12/2013.

Pours a hazy reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, toffee, and honey aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, caramel, and toffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with nice caramel, toffee, and honey qualities all around.
