Pours a murky copper to amber body beneath the thick, off white head which leaves a sticky, dense lacing grabbing the glass throughout the beer.

Very diverse aromas featuring both intense hops and more moderate malts. Hops offer some combination of earthy, spicy, and a touch fruity while the malts are nutty or toffee, maybe even maple or molasses.

The flavor is even more pronounced and aggressive with biting earthy hops with sweet toffee or molasses malt similar to the aroma. Other hints of sweet nuts and dark fruit qualities as well.

Offers a thicker, chewy body and generous carbonation with an oily, yet semi fruity sweet finish.

Tons of flavor and character in this brew with a massive palate and generous hops oils to coat the palate.

2013 vintage poured into a snifter
A: brown with a ruby hint in the light with surprising lots of light brown/off white head and a sticky cloud lace
S: orange peel, currants, booze soaked berry
T: Sweet upfront dark fruit with boozy undertones but not too hot
M: creamy feel and very smooth
Overall one of the best barleywines around
