2002 bottle - Color is a hazy orangish rustic brown with a thin dark ivory head that wisks away quickly, absolutely no lacing. Smell is faint of caramel and alcohol, slight pine sap and honey notes. Taste is very mellowing, warm, soothing, malty with a good caramel base, a touch toffee and earthy pined hops and bitterness. Nothing substantially lasting but a has a good lift. Feel is close to full with a nice creamy feel going down and a bit of chewyness. A nice calm and mellowing brew, goes down nicely and with a whole lotta ease. A nice example for the style and would make a for a good intro brew for the style as well.

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
