This is one of the best barleywines going. I had the draft at Victory Brewing. It poured a clear amber color with a nice off-white head. The glass was a 10 ouncer that was sufficient given the 11% alcohol content. This is a wonderfully aromatic beer, which smells grainy with a hint of herbs that I think include clove and maybe coriander. The taste is a strong, lightly carbonated nectar of grains and fruit that kind of goes off when it hits the taste buds. It is rich and full-bodied, a real treat for the mouth. It is nice to sip, but I wouldn't want to try to drink more than one or two at the most with the kick it packs.
Serving type: on-tap
