A: Pours a brown cola-like color with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Some lacing remains on the glass when sipping but that too also gone quickly.
S: Sweet and spicy aroma - I can detect molasses, malts and citrus in the scent.
T: Sweet malt flavor with a slight citrus zing. A very sweet, molasses/brown sugar taste remains at the end.
M: Smooth, slightly thick with little carbonation to help ease it on the tongue.
D: You feel the alcohol after just a few sips - it certainly doesn't hide that well. Enough flavor and character to warrant a second pour but that might just be the wintry blast outside making me want it.
Serving type: growler

A - Pours a murky reddish-brown with virtually no head.
S - Dark fruits, molasses, sweet malts, and alcohol.
T - Sweet malts upfront with nice amount of dark fruits (cherries and plums). The finish has a good amount of resinous piney hops. Hops give a nice lingering bitterness.
M - Meium bodied with low carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel with a sticky finish. Slight alcohol burn.
O - Very decent barley wine. Would prefer a little less hops and more sweetness. Still very drinkable.
