I poured this bottle out into two servings, and neither one produced much of a head other than some very fine bubbles that dissipated very quickly. Great color, lots of haziness from sediment.

Tons of malts and fruitiness in the nose. It's also got a very strong alcohol presence. There's some dark fruit flavors hiding that comes through a bit, also.

Lovely taste. It's not exactly a barleywine, but it's that's probably the closest style it hits. Lots of malt sweetness and alcohol, but it's not difficult to drink at all. There's some residual bitterness in the finish, but also flavors of bright fruits and caramel.

Really great mouthfeel. It is perfectly carbonated and velvety smooth. The taste lingers and stickiness coats the tongue.'

One of my favorite beers, for obvious reasons. I like to keep a couple of these around for my birthday and such, but this was my last one. Time to trade with someone in the PacNW again.
