Little to no head, but there's sone streaky lace. Dark brown where light shines through.

Darker malt aroma. Not really toasted or chocolate, but true to style.

The flavor is high in alcohol, dark malt (without toast or chocolate), and mild hop. Strong alcohol swallow.

10/18/2014. On draft at Chuck's 85th as part of a 4-Ballast Point beer sampler. Thick and dark, modest amount of off-white head, not much lace. Beer holds its own against the glass. Aroma is caramel, molasses, some herbal notes, a little musty (barrel?). Fairly sweet, with a hint of the bitter from the hops and some spiciness from the alcohol. Body is not as heavy as I would expect for a barleywine, oily, light carbonation, medium-long finish. Overall, very enjoyable for the last beer of the evening, fortunately just samplers or I would be in trouble.
