Notes/Commercial Description:
This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lover’s delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficianados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.

Acquired the beer... Poured the beer... Drank the beer... Reviewed the beer...

Wasn't horrible, or I wouldn't have even bothered to review it...

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.
