3.55/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz bottle.

A- Pours a murky light brown with some red hues to it when held to the light. Half finger off white head shows light retention. Some light streaks of lace on the sides of the glass when I drink this one down.

S- Caramel and toffee malts dominate the front of the nose. Hints of sugared figs and plums as well linger into the ending with a light piney hop aroma. Alcohol is very apparent but it goes along with the aroma itself.

T- Caramel and toffee malts come out strong in the front with hints of piney hop that brings it down a notch. Sugared darker fruits in the middle make up most of the flavor there. Ending shows more of a caramel malt base with hints of brown sugar and molasses. Alcohol comes through pretty strong in the ending bringing out a medicinal taste.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Sweet malts, darker fruit, hint of piney hops are left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly medicinal alcohol, light brown sugar/molasses, and darker fruits. Flavors were balanced very well for the most part. No off flavors were present while drinking. Medium high alcohol drying on the palate.

O- This was a nice drinking barleywine. Nothing over the top but a nice sipping beer on long winter nights. The ABV is a little on the high side and it shows up a lot but adds a light secondary flavor. Overall would love to get my hands on some more of these bottles.
