a very small pour, clean deep amber in color with a finger of beige colored head leaving behind a nice trace of lacing. a nice hoppy aroma, west coast ipa style grapefruit presence, lots of malty sweetness in the nose, some oxidation. a very different flavor than i'm used to in barleywines.. this one being almost fruity (like a quad).. getting a nutty pecan like note, some barley, some rye notes, caramel sweetness, raisins, dates, grapefruit. full body with a creamy mouthfeel, moderate amount of carbonation.
glad i got to try a can of this one, definitely don't think i would've liked an entire 4pack.

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.
