3.53/5 rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
12 oz. into a wine glass.
A- Dark amber with hues of orange, with a half finger, light tan head. Fairly creamy in texture. Retains well and little speckles of lacing stick around.
S- Dark dried fruits, slightly boozy, hop aroma not noticeable.
T- Dried fruits, a little caramel sweetness, and slight bitter hop on the tail balancing it out slightly.
M- rather light and smooth, the booze is hidden well, with a slight warmth on the back of the tongue. Small dry/bitter aftertaste.
O- This was a pretty smooth and easy drinker, unlike a lot of barleywines, especially for the beefy ABV. With that being said, however, I thought this was one of the least complex barleywines I have had. My head wasn't spinning trying to track all of the aromas and flavors, like others have done.

Appearance is a brownish copper with a half finger of head. The head dissipated rather quickly. The nose had the slight hint of sweetness. The malt flavors are not nearly as hearty as they should be considering the style. The lightness of the malt makes the alcohol tastes strong and intrusive. The only real highlight of this offering is the trace of dark fruits in the flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
