3.29/5 rDev -22.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
750ml corked/caged bottle split between a pair of large snifters, poured at fridge temp into fairly warm glasses, so I'd guess it came out in the vicinity of 45-50 F. Batch Number/Best y Date: RR13324-11-2015. Served on 7 March 2014.
Pours brown, big creamy head which fades very slowly, is supported by a lot of carbonation. Has a beautiful silky texture. Cloudy, brownish. Smell is something grapey, maybe some yeast.
Taste...I just made the bitter beer face, and my wife asked (with surprise), "You don't like it?" My response was, "The alcohol just slapped me in the face. It'll take me a second to adjust." So, I guess I'd say it's a bit hot. Aside from that, lots of rye spiciness, some smoke, more alcohol.
Mouthfeel is nice, creamy, hint of grittiness. Overall...too hot to be great, but some pleasant flavors otherwise.

A: Golden and brownish. Kind of foggy with a light colored head.
S: Smells awesome! Malt, brown sugar, big hops, and booze.
T: This drinks very similar to a barleywine. I get caramel, rye bread, seed, toast, honey, lots of hops, brown sugar, malt, and a nice spice on the end. Very tasty.
M: Pretty damn thick.
O: So glad I got this at the bar. A little pricier than the others, but definitely worth it. I'll be getting the bottle when I go to the shop next. Cheers!
Serving type: on-tap
