(Served in a snifter)
Limited release #4 Spring 2011
A- This beer pours a dense hazy glowing brown body with a mass of yellowish-white bubbles that last a bit before fading to a thin film.

S- The nice caramel malt has a hint of sweetness and a faint buttery diacetyl to it with some British yeast ester qualities in the finish.

T- The dark toffee notes are slightly sweet with some coffee malt flavors underneath and a pungent woody green hop flavor in the finish. The bitterness grows a bit in the aftertaste.

M- The medium mouthfeel has no real alcohol heat and a scrubbing fizz that hits in the back of the throat.

O- This beer has a nice malt flavor but it is not really luscious like a typical barleywine and the sweetness is soft compared to the bigger pungent bitterness.

Served In: Pint Glass
