Poured into a pint glass.

A: Cloudy copper with one-finger, off-white, creamy head that lasted a few minutes. Leaves a nice foamy lacing.

S: Caramel malt, big notes of grapefruit and citrus.

T: Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Light butter flavor. Caramel malt. Nice hop bitterness. A bit of spice.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Smooth and silky. Very warm. Wow.

O: It's hard to find anything wrong with this beer. Well worth the price. The thick and creamy mouthfeel is perfect for the winter months and so warm.

On tap at PreFunk. Murky copper pour, small creamy beige head. Overall comes off as very malty, nice bitter hop finish compliments the overall brew. I saw a comment that said barleywine light., very appropriate.
