Poured from a 12oz bowling pin bottle into my Stone Old Guardian barleywine glass.
It pours a clear, but dark red-amber, capped with a thin layer of white-tan head which is constantly fed by streams of rising bubbles; It never fades through the whole glass.
The scent is grassy, alcholic, and infused with butterscotch and a lot of toffee.
Sweet, just a little spicy with alcohol, this goes down smoothly. It has a caramel-butterscotch maltiness and a slight, earthy hoppiness, but malts play the prevalent role. Just a bit of stickiness clings at the finish.
Mouthfeel is smooth, medium-light, and has a very slightly sticky finish.
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
