Thanks to nightfly for this awesome extra.
A- Reddish-brown body with some sediment mixed in. I tried to keep most of it in the bottle, but some mixed in with the body. Thin tan head that settles quickly into a layer of bubbles.
S- Caramel, sweet sugar, vanilla, oak, sweet bread. Really robust aroma.
T- Big caramel, vanilla, sweet sugary syrup, hints of toasted malts, toasted oak, molasses. Crazy good flavor with just the slightest alcohol presence. Really nice, especially for a barely aged barleywine.
M- Full bodied, somewhat syrupy, big sweetness that coats the tongue. Medium to low carbonation is spot on.
O- Just a fantastic BBBW. Huge flavors, not too sweet, not too boozy, just terrific.
