3.96/5 rDev +3.9%
A - deep translucent woody amber with a good bit of lacing.
S - sweet caramel malt and somewhat some hop resin.
T - smokey sweet! Roasted caramel malt flavor and hop bitter finish. More bitter than I've had recently with Barleywines and I like that.
M - medium to full. Very smooth. Limited carbonation. Sweetness sticks around on the roof of my mouth for a couple seconds and moves into the bitterness.
O - very drinkable American Barleywine. Balanced. Check it out!

2.88/5 rDev -24.4%
Appearance: a deep brownish, orangish red. 2 fingers a tan head that leave a strong lacing behind. Strong haze but still able to see through it.
Smell: chocolate? Herbal hops, some dark fruits and other dark crystal character. Good bitter to sweet balance in the smell
Taste: opens up with herbal hops. Transitions to an astringent alcohol mixing with some dark crystal malts. Slight dark fruits and sweetness. Also some chocolate
Mouthfeel: bitter hop and astringent alcohol. Very hard to drink.
Overall: the malt bill in this beer leaves me scratching my head. Why chocolate? And the alcohol astringency is not made up for with any of the tastes

3.4/5 rDev -10.8%
A: dark red. Mostly transparent. Cream colored head that burns away quickly.
S: oaky, slight malty ness.
T: woody malt. Quick finish.
M: decent feel. Sits on the tongue nicely.
O: eh, not terrible. A good beer without knowing its a barleywine. But it is not a great example of it. I'd drink it standardly if it wasn't as expensive. But it isn't something to write home about.
