3.65/5 rDev -4.5%
Presentation: 10oz snifter, poured on tap
Appearance: Just slightly hazy dark amber brew, cream-colored head is not much more than a thick ring but sticks around for a bit
Smell: Mild dark caramel, dark fruits, and just a hint of alcohol...not much in the way of hops...this is listed as an American Barleywine, but it seems more English in style.
Taste: Quite similar to the aromas; alcohol is fairly understated, especially for the abv; dark caramel malts and fruitiness; not much in the way of hops...simple flavors, but nice. A good example of a milder, English-style Barleywine
Mouthfeel: Medium-heavy mouthfeel
Drinkability: Fairly high...but this sneaks up on you in a serious way...
Conclusion: One of the better beers I've had from Flatbranch; maybe #2 after their (amazing) Blackberry Lambic

A - Poured out a somewhat cloudy, rust color with a small, bubbly, tan head. It left soapy trails of residue.
S - Very sweet smelling. Malty aromas and sugary candy notes.
T - It was sweet and malty with a syrup-like taste. It had a mild hop bitterness to balance out some of the sweetness.
M - It was soft and smooth. A medium to full bodied beer.
D - This is a pretty good barleywine. i wish I could try some that they have aged.

Deep copper-amber in color, malty sugary sweet candylike aroma full body, thick and sweet syrupy mouthfeel, very malty caremel flavors with a nice hop bite, balanced with more hops. This tasted a little green, would be much smoother after some aging.
