(Served in a snifter)
A- This beer pours a slightly hazy pretty dense dark garnet body with a racing microcarbonation and a thick sticky light tan head that soon turns rocky.

S- The mellow green juicy hops have a fruity ester supporting the rich malt sweetness.

T- The slightly sweet caramel malt is rich with some more raw grain notes coming through and also drying out as it opens. There is a green juicy hop nip that leads to a slightly pungent bitterness that lingers with a bit of dandelion greens.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a tight fizz that cuts the malt flavor with a faint alcohol warmth.

O- This beer is a nice American barleywine but the hops bitterness is too strong and overpowers the other flavors. It should be really nice in a few years of age on it.
