4.23/5  rDev +9%

Poured from a bottle into an oversized wine glass

A: A rich, auburn color that beautifully demonstrates the character of the malt color, great head and very lacy

S: Hops aplenty and many malts in the nose. It smells like a brew day.

T: It didn't really taste a whole lot like a barleywine, but rather, more like a deep, hoppy IPA. Some notes of fig, the alcohol taste is noticeable, which portrays a slight ammonia taste

M: Very full-bodied, a great mouthfeel

O: A very craftsman beer. It is complex, yet not overbearing. It is drinkable, yet gives you something to consider. I liked it.
