The beer poured into the glass clear deep amber with a tannish head which rose tall and fell slowly to lace the glass.
The aroma was floral and piney with a earthy and only lightly citrus hop presence. Some orange esters were present as was a backbone of caramel. The alcohol in the aroma tingled the nasal passaged but was not overdone.
The flavor was piney and lightly resinous with a citrus accent of orange. The flavor was mostly filled with caramel and resinous citrus which was well balanced and never obtrusive. The caramel also housed a very slight tartness that may not be welcomed as this one ages.
The finish was heading toward dry with a lasting orange citric flavor and piney resinous hops into the aftertaste. The body was full with a creamy mouthfeel. The citric bite and tartness might be an indicator of things to come. Currently the beer drinks pretty easy but has a muted flavor of malt and hops as if it it couldn't decide which way to fall off the fence. A nice barleywine for sure, but the citric punch could be eliminated for my tastes.
12 ounce bottle.
