A: Deep copper or almost lighter brown in color. Forms a small, bubbly head. Good retention, but not much lacing.
S: Aroma is fairly malty. Lots of caramel. A little vanilla. There is also some orangey citrus in the mix.
T: Taste is also fairly malty, though this one is pretty heavily hopped. However, between the strong maltiness and the caramel, the orange flavored hops come off as overly sweet, almost candy-like for a brief moment. Then there is a somewhat odd and abrasive crispness on the finish.
M: Carbonation is on the lower side, but with this beer being a bit on the thinner side for the style, the combination of carbonation and bitterness comes off as prickly and abrasive.
O: Not a bad barleywine. Not a great one either, but, for the price it's still a solid buy.

3.75/5 rDev -0.3%

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.
