A - Pours murky amber in color into my snifter with about two fingers of dense tan head that has excellent retention and very sticky lacing.
S - Lots of sweet caramel malts, toffee, vanilla, apricots, cherries and a touch of alcohol.
T - Sweet caramel/toffee malts up front, mild piny and citrus hops, raisin, cherry, plum and even apricot are all present, and a warming presence of alcohol.
M - Really well balanced, not too hot, very smooth, slightly sticky.
O - Solid offering from Southern Tier, not overly impressive but very drinkable and enjoyable.

This is good stuff. Cool color - HTML #43104 or so, transparency 95.
Minute foam that follows the beer to the bottom of the glass.
I eat barley in soup sometimes and I like it. I drink barley in beer sometimes and like it and this is one of the best beers with barley in it so far. So I really like it. You should get some.
This is strong but doesn't taste strong. Get a girl two glasses and she'll like you afterwards.
Serving type: on-tap
