T: High sweetness and moderate bitterness. Dates and chocolate and a touch of hops.

M: Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Very smooth and only slightly warm going down.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip.

Pours a beautiful, deep mahogany with a tan head which dissipates fairly quickly but leaves some nice lacing.

Smells complex, there's a lot going on here. Fresh hop aroma blends well with sugar cane, slight chocolate, alcohol, and a touch of dark fruit.

Grapefruit, piney, and slightly minty hops lead off the flavor and are balanced out with malt undertones of milk chocolate with sugar cane. The hop bitterness reasserts itself in the finish, blending with flavors of dark fruit. Despite the high abv, the alcohol blends in very well.

Full bodied and a bit chewy, seductively smooth and syrupy from the alcohol.

Overall: Complex, innovative, and very enjoyable. The Troegs brothers have done well again.

Pours a slightly hazy, amber-brown color with a short-lived, modestly-sized, off-white head.

Aromas begin with sticky caramel and toffee maltiness with hints of dried fruits. Then you get a huge, vibrant hoppiness highlighted by grapefruit, lots of pine and emerging dank herbal qualities.

The tastes begin with toasty, bready malts coupled with light caramel and toffee candy. As with the nose, its quite American hop dominant. Flavors of sticky sap-coated pine wood, grapefruit and spicy dried herbs. This beer is boldly bitter with some dry emerging alcohol notes that further complicate my enjoyment.

The mouthfee is medium-plus bodied with medium carbonation. The finish is dry, warming and bitter.

Overall, I was really not a fan of this beer. There's no doubt about it, it's a hop-forward (and then some) American barleywine. So, when it comes to the b-wines, if you like'm warming and you like'm potently hoppy, then, go ahead, give it a try. If you are like me and prefer your barleywines less resinous and bitter, look elsewhere.

22 oz bomber, bottled on 05/01/12, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a dark copper color/maroon color, produces a finger of beige head that fades to a thick wisp, leaves spotty lacing.

S- Very malt forward, a nice sweet caramel and toffee aroma, some sweet dark fruit (dates), and some booze. Some citrusy hops are lingering in the background.

T- Lots of grainy, bready malt, caramel, toffee and dark fruit. Hops provide some orange and grapefruit, more hops than in the nose. Some fruity, rum-like alcohol.

M- Medium-bodied, creamy feel, a bit of alcohol warmth.

O- A very nice, drinkable barleywine.
