First impression is that it pours a marvelous mahogony ... a hazy dark orangy hue. Beautiful!
And the aroma... HOPS! Citrus hops if drunk at the right temperature (about 50 degrees) The hops won't come out if it's too cold. They don't like the cold. And I smell... I smell.... plums! Plums it is. Wow.
This is sensationaly smooth. No alcohol sting at all. That's impressive in a Barleywine.
The head is tan and it likes to linger despite it's smallness. Caramel wofts well. Lovely lacing is left from the head.
Taste is remenicence of a dark fruit I can't put my finger on. Hmmmm. I want to say pinnapples. It leaves a heavenly bitterness that lingers well.
The mouthfeel is outstanding, full bodied.
A great beer indeed. My second favorite Barleywine hands down (next to Saint Arnolds' Divine #6) I love this great beer. Thanks again Avery!
The Lord bless the hop harvest.
