Light brown with reddish hue. 1/2 inch head turns to slight covering. Yeasty smell with maybe some brett. Very little barley flavor in this wine, and I'd mistake this for a regular ale. Finishing bitter. Almost no sweetness considering the style. Thinner than expected with light carbonation.

Had this barleywine as a sampling at our store. Orange-gold color with very little head. Moderate cloudiness.
Smells of dark honey with a slight creaminess, and a background of European hops.
Tastes of dark honey and cream, soft hops and a slight booziness in the finish.
Overall this gave a great barleywine experience with a nice balance.

Served from a 375 ml, wax-finished bottle.

A - Medium copper color with some orange and red. Thick, off-white head that lasts. Slightly hazy.

S - Clean, fresh aroma of bready malt. Some bourbon-like notes, honey. Light oak. Hops are earthy and are very much in the background.

T - Lightly toasted bread, sweet and spicy gingerbread note. Light bourbon, honey. Hops bitterness, but flavors are not distinctive. Sweet alcohol.

M - Medium to heavy body. Moderate, silky carbonation. Strong alcohol presence.

O - This is a deep, rich barley wine that favors malt over hops. It appears to be aged in whiskey barrels, but the character it gained is restrained and subtle compared to many barrel-aged beers. This one is still drinkable without being cloying, and it is certainly delicious.
