3.66/5 rDev -0.8%
750ml of the 2012 bottling opened up by Doug. Poured into a GLBC snifter today, 5/1/2014.
A- Typical barleywine. Caramel brown body, half finger white head with little retention, no lacing. Very placid.
S- smells like tapioca balls. Very toffee and butterscotch forward (in a good, non-contaminated way). Pretty mellow, no indication of big citrus hops as you'd expect from an American-made barleywine.
F- Kind of boring. Sweet, caramel and toffee forward barleywine without much balancing character to it. It's not bad, but it's fairly boring.
M- Medium to thin bodied, lower carbonation, quite on the sweet, slick and sticky end of the spectrum.
O- Not my favorite style and this is one of the lesser ones in the style. Give me Great or The K13 anytime... well that's not fair to Schlafly so I'll just say that I will skip over this if I ever see this again.
