Pours a dark amber with a frothy off white head - good retention & very nice lacing.

Smells like a barley wine with that thick resinous pine scent. It also has some nice floral notes and toffee.

Taste is resinous pine eased by sweet toffee with bitter herb in the back rounding it out. The bitter and sweet swing around the beautiful malt backbone. This is a big delicious beer.
