An attractive copper hued, brownish red color with a tan head that's sizeable for a barleywine.
Aroma of rich, toasty malt in harmony with floral, piney hops.
Taste shows a rich, sweet, toasty, caramel malt backbone. Fairly earthy, a bit much so for my liking. Big hop balance seems floral and piney and is a bit resinous, but not overly resinous. Big and bold yet balanced and smooth.
Good body and mouthfeel.
Very smooth and drinkable for such a big beer.
Overall, a good baryleywine style ale.
