So I don't review beers too often anymore unless they completely blow me away... Just easier to be a typical, lazy American and give hads, but once I had a taste of this baby I realized I had to do right by her.
A: almost looks a lot like prune juice. No head to be found whatsoever, it's definitely the only un-becoming trait that this beer carries.
S: smells of the smoothest rye whiskey, butterscotch, toffee, caramel, etc. it's all there and easy to differentiate.
T: just as the nose promised and then some! This thing is so smooth and packs so much flavor. Rye whiskey, vanilla, caramel, toffee, heaven... (Yeah you can taste that in there too.)
M:low, medium bodied. Smooth, velvety, not much carb, but wouldn't have it any other way w/ this one.
O: this is in the top three Barleywines that I've had the luxury of enjoying. The nose and taste of this one rival, maybe defeat King Henry IMO. I hope to God that I have the chance to drink this again someday.

4.19/5 rDev -2.1%
8oz pour into Hoppin' Frog snifter.
Dark brown, ruby elixir, thin rim of tan head, few wisps of lacing.
Caramel, oak, spice, booze.
Hits the heights here--molasses, caramel, rye/spice, nice whiskey backbone.
Medium body, smooth to slick, balanced.
This one was really hot off the truck, but has balanced nicely with age.
