4.4/5 rDev +11.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: Poured into a pint glass from a growler purchased at Green's off Piney Grove in Columbia, SC.
A: Deep, ruby red tinted amber color with a two finger off-white head. Moderate lacing all the way down to the bottom of the glass.
S: Grapefruit hops, sweet caramel, and something I can't really describe. Wild plum or maybe a ripe, raw molasses.
T&M: Very complex. Tastes like it smells. More citrus hop and caramel maltiness in the taste. Very smooth with a mild alcohol burn. Well-balanced with a moderate to heavy body.
Very original taste and well masked alcohol at 9.2% abv. It sneaks right up on you as I'm only 2/3 of the way through my pint and feeling the head rush. Very nice BarleyWine.
Serving type: growler

3.75/5 rDev -5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
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
