11 ounce pour - $7.50 at Taco Mac in East Roswell, Georgia.

Appearance: Dispensed a dark brown, opaque body with a near inch of ever-so-slightly yellowed head with surprising staying power.

Smell: Toasted, near burnt breadcrusts layered with sweet-scented notes of rich caramel and brown sugar. Some fruitiness within. Pithy, resiny hop elements, and, of course, some noted booze underneath it all.

Taste: Deep, heavy toastiness, some light accompanying roast, and a big taste of Brach's caramel cubes. It's plenty sweet, but, not too sweet. Mild ripe dark fruitiness. Citrusy, resinous hops are fighting the sweetness, pushing to be seen, to be heard, delivering a growing bitterness. Closes out dry, bitterish, and warm, with a lingering earthy, pithy quality.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A barleywine you say "sure" to.

A-poured into a snifter, light khaki foam head, deep amber or copper in color
S- biscuity almost cookie like, followed by hints of dark fruit, ending with a citrusy,
almost grapefruit punch.
T-bitter from beginning to end, opens with caramel, hints of leather, and tobacco.
After a hop punch in the back, leaves a toffee almost fresh baked brownie like
after taste
M-medium body, leaves heavy amount of bitterness behind
O-a good barleywine, the aroma leaves me wanting less leathery flavors and more
biscuity, ready flavors. The hops presence is aggressive but controlled giving
It a good citrus punch.

This is the first beer from 21st that I actually like. The high gravity helps with this style and I believe they hit it on the head with this one. Overall a good drinkable beer and meets the expectations of the style. Looks, tastes and feels like a good Barlywine and I'm not typically a Barlywine or 21st fan. Have one and Probst!!
