Insanely hopped barleywine, what a wonderful concept for this style. Nice bitterly hopped aroma over a well malted backbone. Vibrant dark copper pour with some amber coloring. Huge off white head eventually settling to a half inch and tons of thick lacing. Strong steady carbonation, perfection for this strong style considering lasting head on a barleywine is a rare happening. Filling juicy mouthfeel, nice easy bitter finish makes you wanting more. Amazing flavor, very hoppy resembling a well crafted IPA that gets over on a rather sweet malt content. There were a couple times where the sweet alcohol burn showed itself but it was soon covered up by that well balanced hop flavor. Really a fantastic brew all in all.
