APPEARANCE: Split a bomber at Poppy's Pizza in Estas Park, Colorado after a fantastic meal. I'm not generally a huge fan of Moylan's labels, but I really liked the brown label on the Old Blarney. It seemed to fit the style and the beer itself very well. More importantly, though, once it left the bottle, the Old Blarney poured a deep, copper-red with a thick, foamy and off-white head. Good looking.
SMELL: Dynamite smell with some strong chocolate flavors and a some sweet malty notes as well.
TASTE: Quite hoppy for a Barleywine with as much malt as I smelled in it, which is a good thing. Again, there was plenty of chocolate present along with some sweet notes, but it finished much more dry than most Barleywines I've had.
MOUTHFEEL: Silky and smooth on the way down, this had a nice, warming mouthcoating feel.
OVERALL: After debating between two Barleywines for dessert I am very happy we went this direction. It was an excellent choice to finish off a fantastic meal.

Old Blarney pours a reddish color with a small lacing head. There is a fruity, and dry like aroma. The taste is dry, with a dry fruity flavor, and a mellow malty sharpness. Very easy to drink good full body. Overall its a solid barleywine however a bit on the boring side.
