First had: on tap at the brewery

Deep reddish-brown color with a thin cap of light tan head that retained as a ringet, leaving some soapy lacing on the glass. Aroma was pretty much straight-up malts, moderately roasty, some distant, indistinct fruits. The taste was--you guessed it--malty, very malty, roasty and toasty, and even somewhat smokey, caramel, leather, neutral alcohol, light essence of ripe stone fruits and herbal hops. Medium-full body, somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Yeah, I like a good red ale once in a while, and this one was pretty solid.

On tap in a pint glass.

A- Reddish brown color with a off-white colored head. There's plenty of bubbly carbonation and a lasting 1-plus finger head. Not much lacing.

S- Super strong toasted barley malts and a very potent scotch-like alcohol smell.

T- Some sweet malts to battle the booze. Big and bold maltiness.

M- There's nothing light here, lots of body. But it's so boozy that the alcohol trumps all.

O- I asked the bartender if the abv was 9.0% as she set the glass in front of me. She confirmed my estimate. It smelled 9.0, tasted and felt like even more. Not very enjoyable or drinkable for me.

Rude Boy Sessionable Barleywine Ale
25 ounce bottle with 2013 date in the corner
A - pours a red bubbly rich thick head of three fingers that recedes to one finger and stays through the drinking. Looks very carbonated.
S - toasted malts, barley and rye, a bit of fruit, a touch of hops.
T - heavy on the malts but not quite a barleywine. Sweet with a slight bitter twinge. A touch of rye with a fruity aftertaste and slight alcohol burn.
M - smooth, creamy, slick, and not as carbonated as it looked.
O - pretty good but it isn't quite a typical red ale or barleywine but that's a good thing in this case.
