Poured into a pint glass.
4.0 A: Brown amber color. One and a half fingers of thick creamy light tan head. Average retention, some lacing.
4.0 S: Really sweet and grainy. Some toasted malts and fruity esters. Some floral hops. Very nice overall.
4.0 T: Standard barleywine sweetness. Alcoholic bite. Rather well balanced for a barleywine. Citrusy burst off the onset. A bit of a gingerbread taste.
4.0 M: Full body. Buttery creamy with good carbonation.
3.5 D: I really like barleywines, but I can never seem to enjoy it right to the end. Something about them just doesn't sit well with me in the last couple ounces. It's not the alcohol as I've had plenty of big beers. Oh well, I know there's a drinkable barleywine out there somewhere.

Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a Lagunitas pint glass.
A- Pours a reddish dark amber with a 1/2 inch light tan had that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.
S- Sweet smelling with some notes of dark fruit, caramel and a touch of brown sugar.
T- Big hits of Bready malt, booze and more dark fruit. Everything melds together to make for a drinkable barleywine, there's just not a lot of complexity. Bitter aftertaste.
M- Somewhat syrupy with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.
O- Definitely a sweeter barleywine with a lot of residual sugars but still quite drinkable if not very complex.
Serving type: on-tap
