A big thanks to woodychandler for this beer. Poured from an 8.4 oz. can. Has a pretty amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is fruity, some hops as well. Taste is big on alcohol, hops, more alcohol, a touch of fruits. Feels medium bodied and very boozy in the mouth and overall, while not terrible, wasn't really to my liking.

Serving type: can

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

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.

Serving type: bottle
