3.99/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

n effervescent chestnut with a thumb+ of cream colored head. Decent head retention & slightly better lacing

S: Pears, breadyness, plums & booze

T: Rich breadyness, caramel, leafy & woody hops & plums up front, a touch of booze as well. Hints of toffee as this warms, earthy hops, & more plums & figs as well. Some pineapple in the finish along with sticky toffee, leafy hops & a kiss of booze & Christmas Pudding

MF: Rich body, firm carbonation, sticky, warming, decent balance, seems more like an English BW to me

Nice stab at the style, this is a sipper, the ABV is to be reckoned with, this will age nicely I'm sure

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4

22oz brown bomber with a no freshness date.

Glowing deep copper hue with a faint haze, I did my best to not decant the dregs into the glass. Lacing for a big beer is impressive and stays around until I'm finished. Wafts of brown bread, Christmas pudding, mild hop resin, papaya, doughy yeast, toffee, & alcohol. Sweet, very full bodied with a almost syrupy mouthfeel. Ample hop bitterness, mild dankness within. Figgy with other notes of tropical fruit and then a slow burn of estery alcohol. Sweet breadiness with a nutty finish.

A serious Barleywine that can take some age for the better, don't retire this one guys!!!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a standard pressure-cap bomber into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Walnut body, one-finger cream-colored head and little retention.

S- Boozy, warm aroma. Not much hop character.

T- Warm boozy flavor.

M- Very light bodied.

O- Not a superb example of a barleywine, but that is such a weird style I can't take points. Still enjoyed it.

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

A: A moderately hazy deep copper colored beer with a long lasting tan head. The head is made of cream, compact bubbles. There is a pill of easily disturbed sediment in the bootle so handle with care.

S: A rich malty aroma with medium dried dark fruit, a moderate hops aroma along with a little rye spice. The malt has a fair amount of caramel sweetness and a touch a cocoa in the background.

T: A lot of a malt bringing a medium caramel sweetness, some light spice along with a light cocoa. There is a medium-strong hops bitterness putting the balance slightly towards the sweet. There is a medium orange flavor with medium-light dried dark fruit flavors. the finish is medium with an aftertaste of moderate hops bitterness and a some spice.

M: A medium-full bodied beer with a medium level of carbonation. A medium alcohol warmth on the palate and in the throat.

O: A malt bomb without being overly sweet, having a firm hops bitterness and a complimentary rye spice.
