Served in a snifter at the brewpub.

You know your society is a bit off when it creates something known as a "disheveler". I mean, why would you actively want to dishevel something/someone? Anyway, this stuff pours a cloudy sunset amber-garnet topped by a finger of sandy ecru foam. The nose comprises walnut, barley, light booze, and sweet caramel. The taste brings in more of the same, with a hint of vanilla bean and a bit more of that light booze character. (The one main knock I have against Atlas is their seeming inability at present to mask the alcohol in their beers.) The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a mostly solid barleywine, but one that just didn't do it for me (as admittedly unhelpful though that statement may be).
