I had this 10.6% ABV barleywine on tap at the brewery in San Francisco, CA. It had a thick white bubbly head (over an inch thick) on top of a deep red/brown color. Served in a snifter. It was cloudy had lots of lacing. The smell was both sweet and bitter at the same time - sort of like a cider or apple juice, just with more alcohol in the aroma. The taste is of strong bitter hops with a hops and alcohol aftertaste. Hops is the predominant taste though it doesn't come out in the aroma. Later in the aftertaste there is a more complex fruity and apples flavor.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
