Pours deep, syrupy Amber, thick with quickly dissipating head, likely from alcohol content. Nose is fairly sweet, with restrained hop character and light phenols. Perfect for a barley wine. Taste is incredible- rich and complex, and far too easy to drink for a beer conservatively rated 12.5% abv. Of course the only complaints are from my liver- my mouth is in love with this beer. Initial caramel malt sweetness gives way to a solid backbone of earthy hops and grain body, finishing with a dry, well attenuated tail end. Carbonation is medium-low, as expected, leaving a decidedly smooth mouthfeel that lets the flavors shine through. Incredible.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

look: Dark orange-amber. Pretty full light tan head.Messy lacing that recedes pretty quick.
smell: Some dark citrusy fruit on a bed of malt. Some booze in the nose.
taste: much more mellow than expected. Little hint of the high abv. Some light caramel up front and some hoppy bitterness asserts itself in the finish. Damn civilized for a 13+%. As it drops to room temp the bourbon and oaky vanilla crank up the taste fest.

2015 vintage

L - Pours a dark rusty copper body with a light tan one finger head. Good retention on the head, although no noticeable lacing.

S - Sweet malts and caramel with a citrus tone midway through and a bourbon, vanilla and light oak on ending.

T - Rich caramel and malts abound. Bourbon and vanilla backs it up. The oak and bourbon flavors really come out as the beer warms. It also gets a little more bitter on the ending. Not an in your face beer, but all the flavors come together as very tasty.

F - Full bodied and low carbonation. Really rich mouthfeel, so smooth and velvety.

O - This is a great example of a well done BA Barleywine.

A: Caramel Brown.

S: Breadiness, hops, some sweetness.

T: Hops, but not overly bitter. Breadiness. Some slight sweetness in the way back. A fairly basic flavor profile.

F: very average

O: Had the same night as FFF Behrmoth. This tasted like Behemoth Lite.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Deep tea amber, tan head, good lacing.

Aroma/Flavor: Nose has malt forward notes of honey, caramel, and some citrus fruitiness which may be the American hops. Pencil shavings and vanilla from the oak are also prominent. On the palate it is more of the same with a light hop bitterness jab and a touch of booze.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, thick, light lingering hop bitterness and a kiss of warming, drying booze.

Overall: A fantastic example of the American Barleywine. More intense than any others made in GA. Good to go fresh, or with time.
