A: nice and amber, with a little cloudiness, which is how I view barleywines. Head is eggshell white and burns off pretty quick. 3.5
S: citrusy and a little oak. Not bad. 3.25
T: comparing the taste to other 21st amendment beers, it is pretty comparable. That being said, it isn't superior. Compared to other barleywines, it lacks. A strange aftertaste and far too sweet, with no real hop to it. 2.75
M: leaves a sour taste in my mouth that isn't really desirable. I feel like it should be sipped cooler, but that is contrary to other barleywines. 3.25
O: it isn't too bad, but at about 11 bucks for 4 8oz cans, you are way better suited with something else for your money. 3.0

A-a dark amber with a very thin layer of white head that disappears quickly
S-caramel malt, rum soaked raisins, and a light bitter finish
T-caramel malt backbone with brown sugar, raisins, and a bitter citrus finish. Alcohol is well hidden.
M-medium to full body, crisp carbonation
Overall a very enjoyable barleywine, a good balance of malt sweetness and bitter hops
