3.48/5 rDev -8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
12 ounce can - $2.79 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia. Canned on: 10/26/11.
Appearance: Pours a clear, deep amber-brown body with a finger or so of light, light beige foam. Acceptable lacing.
Smell: Fragrantly spicy hops with a firm backing of dry-hopped grassiness and blistering resins atop biscuity, pale malts and a hint of dark fruit and chocolate powder and caramel (the caramel only as it warms a smidge).
Taste: Toasty Munich malts given a thin brushing of sweet-tasting caramel. Crumpled biscuit tops. A slim portion of bitterish chocolate. Any initial sweetness is low and quite brief. Spicy, earthy, resinous, grassy hops with a full bitterness that embodies the majority of the overall taste. Maybe a hint of dates, but could just as easily be some esters from the English yeast used. Warming alcohol presence, though not intrusively so. Finishes quite dry, a little warm, and with a lingering spicy, bitter quality.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: A slow-sipping brew, more from there being plenty of oomph in the alcohol and hop department than being deeply satisfying or indulgent.
Serving type: can

3.71/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Canned in 2011.
Pours a slightly hazy medium brown with copper highlights and a large, frothy khaki head that slowly dissipates, leaving sticky lacing.
Aroma is laden with dates, figs, prunes, and toffee. Smells very rich.
Flavor reveals green apple, dates, and raisins underlying a lightly toasted, bready caramel malt backbone. Hints of sherry indicate that oxidation may have set in.
Body is a touch full, with fairly low carbonation and moderate alcohol warmth.
The malt backbone is a little lacking for the style, but ester notes are fairly complex. Probably won't age nicely much longer. Metallic notes surface as it warms.

A: Pours a deep ruby red with a light mocha head.
S: Dark fruits and light, but not citric fruits in the nose.
T: Lemon, some resiny pine, dark fruits to start followed by bready malt in the finish. Interesting. Definitely different from English or American barleywines.
M: Full bodied and smooth.
O: Worth a try. It's a good beer, and if nothing else, it's interesting. I've tasted few beers that taste quite like this.
