Hazy dark red amber with tight medium head and good retention and lacing. Sweet, bold barley aroma with coffee and floral aromas making appearances. Big barley sweetness upfront quickly tempered with floral bitterness and noted of coffee. Big boozy warming and finish. Bitterness lingers and shifts balance a bit towards the hops. Slightly sticky with big fuzzy linger mixing with the bitterness.
A little too boozy but otherwise has a great taste and balance. Wonderful clear and pleasant aroma. Maybe not the most complex but certainly a very robust flavor and quite enjoyable.

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
