(Served in a snifter)

A- This beer pours a slightly dense deep red toffee brown body with a light tan head of thick cream that last a bit.

S- The vinous grainy aroma has some dry fruit hints when it warms a bit.

T- The toffee flavor has a nougat taste to it with some nice toasted malt notes coming through when it warms. There is a nice green hop hint in the finish. The finish is almost sweet but I think it is a dry finish with the malt character giving it more of a sweet perception.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with no real alcohol heat until the last few sips.

O- This is a very easy to drink barleywine that is a bit on the dry side with a good but subtle hop support in the finish adds some nice depth.

Served In: Pint Glass
