look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 750 ml dated 12/18/2013.

A: Pours a rich mahogany brown and slightly cloudy with generous two to three finger tan head. Long lasting retention with head settling like a cap on top. Lots of sticky lacing,

S: Caramel and toffee. Dates and raisins. Roasted barley. Earthy hops and fresh pine cones.

T: Rich toffee, butterscotch, and caramel. Sweet dark fruity flavors with dates and plum. Biscuits drizzled with honey. Finishes with a big hop punch that cuts through the sweetness.

M: Thick and chewy with an average carbonation.

O: Very well done. Wonderful barleywine, and incredibly drinkable even considering ABV and fairly assertive hops.
