Still not sure why I couldn't get 12oz for the $3.19 I paid. Ow well single poured into a pint glass.
A - Even though it's high octane I still get a 1/4 inch of sticky white head that settles to a mild lace ring. Color is a bright hazy amber brown.
S - Smells of malts, brown sugar, Citrus hops, a touch of alcohol and some biscuit.
T - Funny it has a distinct medicinal cherry flavor that is not too sour, then flavors of typical barley wine nature with some woody and sugary malts. Next is the hops they are somewhat bitter but mix fairly well. Finish is again sweet with a touch of brown sugar.
M - Worst part even though it hides the ABV well it drinks very watery. Not bad if you want to pound the can.
Overall a very overpriced barleywine that only gimmick is canning only 8oz and charging for the full 12. Not the worst barley wine but I have had better.

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.

3.89/5 rDev +3.5%

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.
