Pours a dark-amber color that is so dense it makes this beer seem hazy even though I know it is not. It has a nice off-white head, which I expected. Spicy, dark malt and alcohol are the most prevalent in the nose. Hog Heaven really reaffirms to me that I can compare Barleywines to the really stinky, awesome cheese of the beer world. The taste is also of malt and alcohol...but not in a burning way...more subtle warming...pretty awesome. The mouthfeel is silky and slightly creamy. Awesome beer...not the best Barleywine, but no doubt very noteworthy and worth getting if you come across it.
Serving type: on-tap

3.75/5 rDev -5.3%

A: deep autumn-copper. Thin head that clings to side of glass. Thin lacing. Clear.
S: sweet caramel. Juicy-fruit. My wife says tangerine. Small alcohol hint at the back end.
T: Dark caramel. Pine tar. Alcohol.
M: medium carbonation. Big body like Kate Upton.
O: decent barley wine. Drier than I anticipated. Good flavor. Big bitterness. Would have rated higher but the bitter lingers too long turning into an almost unpleasant flavor. Not to shy away, though.
Serving type: bottle
