A-Slightly cloudy amber. Good look for a barleywine. Only minor carbonation.
S-Mostly caramel malt, minor indiscernible dark fruit with absence of alcohol or floral notes.
T-Caramel sweetness is good with only some dark fruit. Finish is best part as there is only moderate alcohol/hop bite/bitterness. Smooooth.
M-Is almost perfect. Had this been a little heavier would rank a 5.
O-Rates above average. Interested to see how this one ages in 5 and 10 years.
Serving type: bottle

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
