On tap into a small snifter DeCicco Brewster NY.
A - Great mahogany color, crystal clear. Bone white head with great lacing. Beautiful.
S - Caramel and breast malts are pretty dominant, with a punch of citrus hops in the back seat. Vanilla is prominent as well.
T - Spot in follows the nose, but with a nice hop bite up front. Subtle, citrus hops followed by caramel, vanilla and breast malts. Great taste.
M - Perfectly carbonated for the style (your mileage may vary, as I'm drinking from draft) and great thick mouthfeel. Not too thin, not too thick. Just right, and leaves a nice coating.
O - Very, very enjoyable barley wine from 21st and I wish I could see how cans stack up to the kegs. Definitely recommended!

Unfortunately this was a little pour at a beer tasting...so take this review as such. This is a very nice representation of the style. I wouldn't say that it is in the middle, but it isn't the best, but it certainly isn't the worst.
Taste: Deceivingly sweet as you first sip it, then the hops kick in. This works very well for the beer. The sweetness and the hop is fruity.
This is definitely worth a try!

Small red bull sized can. 92IBU. 11.5%ABV. Tagline on can: "American style barleywine ale packed with citrusy hops".
Pour lends a medium browish-red / rust color. Hazy apple juice color in snifter. Started with a small head that fades quickly into non-existence. Aggressive swirl causes carbonation bubbles to cake a tiny eggshell colored head that again quickly fades to nothing.
Upon opening can, immediately could smell citrus notes from the can. Upon further sniffing, caramel sugar being bathed in by orange peel.
Aggressive swirl followed by first sip leads to aggressive piney hop melting into thick sugars pounding your taste buds followed by a dry tongue and creamy sugary throat.
Less complex than hoped for a style begging for complexity.

Had at Bar of Soap Asheville. Served in a stemless wine glass.
A- Pours a light brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.
S- Sweet cereal grain malt with a big shot of brown sugar and vanilla. Slightly boozy and a trace amount of hop aroma.
T- Comes on sweet and Bready but then there's the moderate hop bitterness and booze. Notes of caramel, honey and maple. Not necessarily complex but there's a lot going on. Layers of vanilla and sweet bread. Good hop burps.
M- Slightly syrupy with medium carbonation and a fullish body.
O- Not an awesome barleywine, but one that delivers what it's supposed to.
