A: Pours a deep and dense brown color. Thin cream colored head clings to the glass nicely.
S: Big and malty on the nose with some coconut, toffee, butterscotch, caramel, grape nuts and some light toast.
T: A light touch of earthy hops upfront with a ton of chewy malt. Caramel, mild chocolate then fades to some toasted bread crust, Concord grape and mild earthy hop resin. A pretty solid take on the style.

Color is about as deep and dark as amber gets. Pours a nice head that lasts well in the small Cristal Alken nonic. Lots of lacing, beautiful suds. One of the most attractive beers I've seen. The creamy carbonation is a delight on the tongue. Aroma of cedar, dark malt, fresh bread.
Rich flavor is really nutty. The sweetness is just right, and the hops provide a bittering balance. Some caramel, but mostly roasted hops with touches of chestnut and butterscotch. Not at all unctuous, just a richly pleasurable mouthfeel along with the splendid carbonation.
Another excellent beer from Ruhstaller. If only there were more Barleywines this good. I like the English style in this case, with a more appropriate hoppiness. One of my favorite beers of 2013. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Best Damn Beer Shop in San Diego.
