22oz. poured into generic pint glass
Appearance: Clear orange/copper with a pretty two inch cloud-like head that has great retention and leaves great lacing on the glass.
Smell: Lots of caramel and citrus hops and alcohol aroma in the background. Somewhat muted.
Taste: The caramel from the smell is not as sweet as expected and mixes with a spiciness that is nice. The hops are apparent but balanced against the malt. The finish is decidedly earthy, dry, and alcoholic.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a creamy silkiness to it and alcoholic heat at the end.
Drinkability: Drinks pretty easy for a barley wine but high ABV means one bomber is enough.
Overall: I like pretty much every offering I've had from Moylan's and this one did not disappoint. A solid barley wine that has a little something different going on than most. Worth a shot.

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.
