A - Poured beautifully on a pilsner glass. Amber with a foamy one finger head that disappeared almost instantly. Practically no lacing left behind.
S - Nice balanced smell between the hops and the malt. The alcohol kicks in a bit but not overwhelming. Get a bit of citrus and just a tiny bit of bourbon with woody hints. Definitely a great smell.
T - Up front I taste the bitterness of the hops, which is enough and then it turns to sweetness washing the bitterness, thus balancing the palette. Can taste the wood, probably oak, bourbon, a little bit of chick-o-stick kind of flavor and spices.
M - Nice carbonation for its style and it doesn't feel dry at all. Smooth and full bodied.
Overall it is a nice barleywine perfect for a dessert after a great meal, or for having it when you feel like drinking only one beer. Well, or maybe like me... I'm having this beer as a closing beer after an Abita Mardi Gras and three Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stouts. No more beer for today!

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
