look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.
