Brown and hazy with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet malts with brown sugar. Flavor is sweet rich malt that's nicely supported by a moderate bitterness. The malts definitely lead but the hops show its American influence. A creamy, silky feel with a nice low carbonation. I'm not a big barleywine fan but I enjoyed this one.

A - swampy brown colour, half finger of head retained at thin cover, left nice consistent lacing
S - citrus with touches of pine, earth, and nuts
T - starts with a citrus hop bite with a strong molasses malt compliment, undertones of earth and almonds with just hint of alcohol sweetness
M - medium body that is fairly sticky at first, drys out through the finish and warms the innards, very drinkable for a big brew
O - rich in flavours while striking a surprisingly nice balance between hop and malt flavours, and a nicely drinkable 10%, this one is a winner

Nogne got this one right!!!! An outstanding American Barleywine. Pours a dark mahogany brown with some light getting through on the outside of the glass. Requires a hard pour to get a small to medium size head. Good sticky lacing.

Strong aroma of caramel malts and a little chocolate. Taste is exceptional. A lice smooth caramel malty backbone, with some elements of chocolate. This is balanced but not overwhelmed by a good infusion of C3 hops. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel is rich and smooth with a good hops and alcohol bite at the finish. The alcohol is more warming than harsh. A very satisfying slow sipper.

This is an outstanding beer. A bit pricy at $8.99 for a 16 ouncer but still a very satisfying beer.
