4.35/5 rDev +14.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a very cool looking 12 oz. can into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Canned on 10/26/11.
Appearance: Pours a deep and dark brownish orange with a little ruby red. Lots of rising bubbles and a solid four fingers of off white head with very good retention. Lots of lacing sticking to the glass.
Smell: Aroma is hoppy with a big malt backbone. Bready caramel and toffee malts. Big smell of citrus hops with some hints of grapefruit and orange. Also some spicy pine resin. Hints of sweet dark fruits with some dates and prune.
Taste: Malt forward here. Sweet bready caramel and toffee malts up front with some notes of dates and other dark fruits. Hops start to come through midway with some citrus grapefruit and pine. Also some hints of scotch. Hops may have faded a bit over the past two months but this is still pretty good. Makes for a nice balance.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy and somewhat chewy. Pretty smooth for the abv.
Overall: A pretty solid ale. Good balance of malts and hops. The dark fruit adds a nice touch.
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.
