2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at Hourglass. Pours a copper with a white head. Nose is caramel, pine, cough medicine, and hints of syrupy hope. Flavor is similar with pine and syrupy hops- caramel and toffee, but the hops get a bit abrasive and drag their nails down into the finish. Medium in body and not my favorite barleywine.

growler from the brewery. Pours a very dark red color with beige head. Aroma is somewhat toffee-like, with some wine like qualities. Slightly sour with some malty sweetness and minimal hoppiness. Some warming from the alcohol content is noticeable. Pretty good.
