12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Ruby red with a 1/2 finger of off-white head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity with light carbonation.

Nose
Caramel, grape, and toffee with woodsy / earthy hop aromas.

Taste
Woodsy / earthy / weedy hop flavors (think CTZ hops). Caramel cubes, light toffee, butterscotch, and slight molasses. Touches of overripe pear, white grape, and fig. Pine resin and a cinnamon booziness lingers on the finish.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, oily, semi-silky, and warming with a moderate bitterness.

Overall
Well, it's certainly American in style. There's a good amount of hop flavor and bitterness in there. Nice and warming.

Murky mahogany,with a French vanilla cream,melted whipped cream type head that sticks to the rim like its holding on for dear life.I'm smelling flat cherry cola,dr.pepper type flavor,some herbalness from the hops almost like green tea.Im tasting prunes,raisins,caramel,cherry,flat soda,touch of brown sugar,still get a green tea like herbal dry finish.mouthfeel is extremely thick,sticky,carbonation is moderately low.the way I'm describing this beer may sound weird but I'm telling you it's worth a shot.im typically a barley wine guy but it took me a few tries to finally settle in to the complexity.this beer should be enjoyed by a person who has a strong palate and doesn't mind some heat present.its 10.4 but tastes 11,11.5....never understood why it has a best before date usually barley wines are meant to be cellared why can't this one?

Pours a brownish copper with honey edges and over a finger of head. The nose is mildly hoppy. The body is a touch thin for the style. The flavor follows the nose with a dry hop finish but not much malt assertiveness.
