4.61/5 rDev +22.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Pours brownish to amber with a decent head for a barleywine. Some head remains on top through consumption and even a bit of lacing which is suprising at this strength.
S: Hops - pine and grass, malt - sweet caramel.
T: Hops present up front and grab you mellowing later with malt sweetness, belgian candi sugar, and a slight alcohol finish but less than expected for a barleywine of this strength. Really nice.
M: Good after dinner drink, but not as heavy as you might think.
O: Well done and especially like the small 8 oz can - don't have to commit to what is often a 22+ oz bottle of very strong beer. Bravo!
Serving type: can

4.48/5 rDev +19.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
A: Dark mahogany, almost see through when held up to the light. Minimal tan head.
S: a bit stuffed up, couldn't smell much of anything.
T/M: Very hop forward and super smooth. Herbal and woody hops. Some grainy malts. Certainly hoppier than malty. Lots of fruit flavors (mango, pineapple); sweeter than bitter and finishes with nice, mellow alcohol. Lowly carbonated and light body.
Could have warmed a bit. As I drank it some of the grainy flavors were more present and the hop flavors were also more accentuated.
Serving type: on-tap
