On draft at 7venth Sun. Pours a hazy caramel brown with an off-white head. Nose is big toffee, almost a nutty quality, caramel, and piney hops. Flavor is similar- malty toffee with hops all over it- toffee, nuts, and piney hops. A lot like a double IPA, but a big malt backbone. Enjoyable beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dark brown no head, aroma of caramel malt and hops. Taste follows, malty yet hoppy. smooth, not too heavy. The hops are very citrusy. This is pretty amazing, I'm not a big barley wine fan but this is on a whole other level from other barleywines.

on tap @ 7venth Sun. great balance between the bready malts and moderate hop character. Doesn’t kill you with the hops and alcohol heat. I bet the barrel treatments are going to be phenomenal.
