First had: on tap at the brewpub in Tampa

Poured a slightly hazed copper color, with a small white head that sank to a ringlet, and left dabs of soapy lacing on the glass. Sweet malts in the nose, light fruit esters, somewhat floral/herbal hops. Didn't really taste like a barleywine at all. There was a medicinal/phenolic quality to it that is present in some barleywines, but it was more an off-taste here. Flavors of toasted grains, ripe fruits, distant herbal hop bitterness...and spiked with vodka. Seriously, it tasted to me like they got the high ABV in this by spiking an off-flavored pale ale with vodka or moonshine. Body was light-medium, thin for the style it was supposed to be. Not very good, and not very exemplary of any style of barleywine. I think "boilermaker" might be more suiting.

Serving type: on-tap

3.43/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Arrives in a hefty goblet. Thick film of off-white foam atop chestnut brown liquid. Clear and bright. Retention sucks.
Smell is roasted malt, slight hops, caramel.
Taste is big with lots of roasted malt, whiskey (a ton), caramel and some hops. Huge alcohol bloom, biggest I ever experienced.
A bigger tasting beer than 10% ABV would suggest. Had 15-18% that was less in-your-face than this. Full bodied, medium effervescence, slightly drying finish. A good beer but extremely bold.

Serving type: on-tap
