My first barleywine.

Bought it on the recommendation of the beer store guy.

Poured into a snifter. Little to no head, just a thin layer of off-white head that disappears into a ring. Copper to light brown color. High viscosity and cloudy appearance. Little to absent lacing.

Strong malt aroma with a good mix of hop smell. Alcohol's abundance is felt in the nose. Sweet and bready.

Taste : A lot of alcohol, felt upfront. Good amount of bitterness and huge alcohol heat. semi-dry finish with no sweetness of malt. Huge sensation of alcohol as it traverses the palate and through the neck. Moderate hopping.

Mouth feel Full and strong. Moderate carbonation.

Overpowering alcohol. Do i like the style? Not really. Good for intoxication.

Style rate : 4.25
Personal rate: 3.5

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A-Sampled at EBF,; shocked I haven't tried this before. Pours a deep amber.

S-Almost all malt. Caramel and toffee. Strong estery fruitiness. I wanted more from the hops.

T-Akin to the nose. Malt stressed. Caramel, toffee, brown sugar. An inanimate fruitiness as well. Light bitterness and some head.

M-Fuller bodied. Softer carbonation. Some drying alcohol.

O/D-As plain as it gets in terms of the style. Something can be said for its longevity as a highly praised Barleywine. I prefer mine with a bit kore complexity.

Serving type: on-tap
