3.59/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
A: This beer pours a deep reddish brown with little head which dissipates quickly.
S: I don't get much in the aroma. Some earthiness, dried fruit, and a little alcohol.
T: I get fruity tartness and some hop bitterness upon first taste. It finishes with just a touch of alcohol but not nearly as much as you'd think from 11% abv. Doesn't have quite enough complexity of flavor that I look for in a barleywine. It finishes very dry with just a hint of lingering bitterness.
M: Definitely on the light side for this style but with nice carbonation.
O: A tasty beverage for sure but nothing spectacular. I really want big flavor from this style of beer and this one, while enjoyable to drink, is rather lacking in that department. Not a bad brew for a cold night though, warms you up quickly.

3.4/5 rDev -6.8%

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
