A-Copper Haze is best description with only hints of light showing through the haze. Medium carbonation and poured into a glass with a one finger head that dissipates, but hangs around the glass until the last bit.
S-Initial Dark fruit (plum/dark cherry) backed by candy like sweetness smell. Until taste one wonders if hops are even in this brew. This smells like a wine and makes one want to pair with a good pungent cheese.
T-Fantastic! Initial bitterness followed by sweet fruits finishing with caramel malty goodness. Final tinge of balanced hoppy-bitterness that sits on tongue along with sweet malt. Truly a delicious balanced Barley-wine.
M-Approaching a thick stout chewiness, but not overboard.
Overall a fantastic Barley Wine. I am going to cellar and try at 5 years and 10 years to see how it ages.
