Thank you, Loren, for bringing this one back from Alaska for me!
A - Dark brown with ruby highlites. Clearish with an average sized, lingering tannish white head. Lots of lacing left throughout.
S - Sweet caramel malts, dark raisin-like fruits and a subtle smokiness. Slight alcohol aroma is warm and pleasant. Piny hops in the background.
F/M - Again, sweet bready caramel malts, rich dark fruity esters and a nice, balanaced smokey malt flavor. Moderately firm bitterness with a piny/resinous/spicy hop flavor. Full bodied, slightly oily and slick, with moderately low carbonation - but just enough. Lingering smokey caramel flavor.
D - This is a great (albeit unique) barleywine. Full bodied, tasty and smoky, i could easily finish this bomber by myself.

Picked this up in a great trade with Evan! An aggressive pour yields a caramel-colored two finger head with decent retention and great lacing. Dark brown, nearly black pour is probably the darkest Barley Wine I've seen. Rich, bold nose with huge dark fruits, bourbon, and oak along with hints of vanilla, figs, toffee, raisins, and sweet brown bread. The taste follows suit with tons of oak and dark fruits along with hints of vanilla, maple, butterscotch, subtle chocolate, molasses, brown bread, and toffee. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy, but creamy smooth with a subtle warming finish. The 13.4% ABV is nowhere to be found for this unbelievably drinkable beer. Overall, this is a world class Barley Wine. Bold, flavorful, complex, and extremely drinkable. It's time to start trading for more...
