look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from an 8.4oz can into a pint glass, bottled on date of 2/5/13
A: Transparent amber color with a one-finger head that slowly settles
S: Lots of roasted malt and citrus peel hops. Almost smells more like a DIPA than a barleywine
T: Definitely more hop-forward than fruit-forward. Hops up front with roasted malt & sweet baked pear/fig underneath. Bitter finish
M: Medium-bodied, actually fairly complex as the hops/malt/sweet fruit/etoh all come into balance
O: Not bad but not my favorite barleywine. I can't decide if I like the can size or not - on the one hand, from an etoh consumption standpoint it's great but the beer seemed like it was gone before I could completely appreciate it.
Serving type: can

Dark amber in the Old Fashioned glass with minimal foam. Mouthfeel is quite sudsy, the stuff seems to erupt when you take a sip.
A little woodsy, cedar taste Quite dry. This is even less sweet than the typical double IPA. Very alcohol tasting. Hot and astringent. Quite bitter aftertaste. I don't taste any of the advertised "citrusy" hops, unless they mean a slash of grapefruit pith. This delivers the booze, but it is so un-malty it's a rocky road down the throat.
Great packaging, like what the English would call a "nip." From the 8.4 oz can purchased in the four-pack purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

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.
