Poured from the 22 oz bottle into a Scotch Ale glass at cellar temperature. $3.99 at Grapevine Liquor in Denver.
Attractive amber color, head is adequate. Pleasantly carbonated. Label notes Centennial and Crystal hops. Seems very bitter to me. Definitely not the malty and rich style of Barleywine. Sharp in general profile with hardly a note of sweetness. Thin in body. Long fragrant and bitter aftertaste. Nose is just beery with a touch of pine.
Well, it's a bargain for a big ale, but it's kind of hot and prissy. Not rich enough for sipping. More on the medicinal side.
