Pours a hazy brownish-orange with a thin tan head. Lacy. Smells of citrusy hops and rich nutty malt.
Taste is malty first then very hoppy. Caramel, smoke, and big citrusy hops. Grapefruit. Rich malty finish. Big beer, very full bodied and very balanced. Yummy. One of my new favortie barleywines.
Serving type: bottle

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
