Bottle.
Appearance: deep orange-copper. Thin, fuzzy, white head.
Smell: caramel and toffee. Light alcohol.
Taste: caramel, toffee, orange peel, slightly sweet. Followed by light alcohol and light pine.
Mouthfeel: medium to medium low carbonation. Medium-big body. Slightly sweet.
Overall: I like this beer. It is a great representation of a West Coast Barleywine. Balanced well. Will buy again.

A: This poured a cloudy mahogany with thick tan head.
S: It smelled like copper hops and nutty malt, with some earthy toffee.
T: It tasted like copper hops and earthy caramel, with some roasted nuts and pumpernickel bread. It had a clean earthy aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a mediocre brew, with subpar scent and taste and body. The finish was a bit hot too, so it was better to sip. Age may help. I don't recommend it fresh.
