Poured with a small but foamy head, which dissipated rather quickly but left a pleasing lacing. Pours a very very dark brown.
Very fruity (raisins, plums) with a lot of other dark malt characteristics. Pretty full on hops notes, I could tell this was going to be bitter before I noticed the IBU rating on the bottle. Very piney.
Bitter bitter bitter sweet. Bitterness hits first and lingers last. Really well balanced against the piney spicy fruitiness and caramel malty sweetness though. Theres not so much a roasty taste as the suggestion of one, probably down to that bitter sweet combination. Not as rich as the Mikkeller Big Worse, the only other barleywine I've tried up to now, but a lot better balanced.
Thick and fullbodied, carbonation is spot on (can't speak for the style, but the carbonation here is low yet noticeable). A little too sticky, I'm thinking this is a characteritic of the style I'm not used to yet.
It's drinkable. It's a sipper. I'm ok with this one.

Split a 500 ml bottle Nov.30th
A: looked pretty good Nice Brownish Deep Amber colour, Tan'Offwhite head
S: Subtle, faint notes of caramel and chocolate trying to make their presence known
T: Oxidized full on Cardboard bomb. Lingered over powered even the booze.
M: Slightly thinner than i hoped and the faint carbonation didnt help.
O: Not what i was expecting i checked the bottle best before stamp it had two numbers on it 2 years apart should of been in the clear. might need another look if a new shipment comes in
