On tap at Pizza Luce St. Paul in tulip.
A- Dark amber not overly inviting, no head to speak of.
S- Sweet nose with slight hop present.
T- Earthy with a hint of biscuit, caramel. Big heavy malt with a kiss of hops to finish. Feels like the diesel most barleywines carry yet I would not have expected the abv so high just on taste alone.
M- Medium heavy semi malt syrupy.
O- Nice hop touch. I had my doubts after the small sample the bartender insisted I tried and I was right but I didn't want to be annoying and turn down the sample and the full pour. I may order this again to give it another go. I just need to develop more of a taste for barleywines. Cheers.

From a tiny little can, this barley wine is a hazy chestnut color with a thin head. It is very dry, with a lot of citrusy and resiny hops. Perfume, fruit (ripe prach and orange) alcoholic scents dominate the beer. The taste has malt and sugar flavors. Heavy bitterness. Full and rich mouthfeel.

Pours a thick cloudy amber with a thick 1" white head that dies down to light foam with a clinging foam lacing on the glass. Smell of hops and caramel, dates, plums, and dark fruit, and spicy hop notes. Taste is caramel malts up front, mild bittering hops on the middle and back with the caramel, brown sugar, and a dash of cinnamon toast. Great mouthfeel, richly carbonated and buttery, thus making for a decadent barley wine. Reminds me somewhat of a more caramel version Sierra Nevada's Big Foot. Very VERY nice.
