In the Glass: It looks like a thick, hearty malty beer in the glass. It has a thin white head, and pretty much no lace. But it looks very appetizing in the glass. I am thirsty, and it is hot outside… but man, it looks good!
Nose: I am picking up some spices on the nose. I stuck my nose DEEP into the glass, and I am getting lots of bread and am really grabbing those Saaz hops. This promises to be a malty beer with loads of flavor.
Flavor: The flavors don’t really kick in until the end, but when they do they are solid. It is a quick malty flavor that splashes across your tongue, but the flavor sticks with you.
Mouthfeel: There isn’t much mouthfeel here. There are some bubbles up front, but that is gone in no time. As you swallow, the back of the tongue gets the smoothness that you expect from a barleywine, but there isn’t nearly the sweetness you get from one of those.
Aftertaste: The aftertaste is strong, at first. But by the time you sit there and swallow a few times, it quickly fades away. The tasting notes talk about the chocolate notes coming out as the beer heats up, so I will wait and see if that is the case.
This beer has a HUGE ABV, but you never get that. There is no heat, and the beer is extremely smooth. The malts help that. I like the label, I like the beer… not the best I have had, but one that I could see myself reaching for time and time again. Oh, and while I was writing this, Tröegs Brewing actually responded to me on Twitter. Make sure to follow @troegsbeer on Twitter to learn more about the brewery! Bottoms up, people!

A - one inch creamy, off-white head, very deep red coloring, mahogany, beautiful
S - alcohol, toffee, molasses, caramel, lots of malt, faint apples
T - roasted/toasted grains, malt, lots of caramel, can taste the alcohol but in a good way, sweet but has nice balancing with the ever faint hops in the background
M - creamy, dry, full bodied
O - This is a fantastic beer. From the appearance to the aroma to the taste - delicious, Beautiful coloring, the taste and smell of the malt and the caramel is great. I would recommend this beer to anyone regardless of their taste preferences.
