look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Served @ 50deg in Bruery snifter.

A - Nice brown body with Amber highlights. Thick ~1.5-2" tan head when poured aggressive.

S - Smell seemed to change a little each time I inhaled. Hops are very present, probably partially due to this still being a little fresh. Lots of caramel and toffee malt notes.

T/M - Lots of hops and malt, with sweet clean finish. A little thin feeling considering the carbonation was more than expected.

O - A solid American Barleywine. Alesmith hasn't disappointed me yet, so I didn't expect that they would here. Will get another bottle and cellar it for a little longer next time. Prost!
