Wisconsin

4.08/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

From Blind Bomber BIF (Thanks to Hophead101!):

A: Hardly transluscent ruby-amber pour. Has a fine, slow-fading, golden brown head. Beer is apparently thick and has slower, viscous legs when swirrled in the glass. Looks inviting, though nothing is really out of the ordinary here.

S: First and foremost, oaky. Sweet biscuity malts dominate, slight caramel nose. Muted bitterness.

T: Booze!, at first. Sweet malts with some dark fruit and esters. Oak sweetness melded well with candy/caramel. Very little hop flavor, but the bitterness is present; well balanced overall... the alcohol flavor is really well integrated into the taste of the beer as a whole.

M: Quite smooth. Carbonation is spot on and the beer is thick enough to hold up to the flavor.

D: I feel like the alcohol could be a bit of a kick in the pants here, but it was really easy to split a bomber.

Quite an enjoyable barleywine. I don't know whether it was the year of age or how the beer was brewed, but the hops (both taste and aroma) were very muted for an American Barleywine. I've been hoping to try Mirror Mirror for a while now and even after tasting it blind, it didn't disappoint. Very solid.
