Aroma: Can definately sense the malts when taking a nice smell of this brew. With 6 different types, this smells heavenly. Some brown sugar tones come through as well.
Appearance: A nice dark reddish brown color when held up to the light. Unless you hold to a light, you will not be able to see through it. Good tan head when I first poured it in my glass.
Flavor: Good malty taste in every sip. Some smokey and brown sugar tones are noted as you enjoy it.
Mouthfeel: Decent body, light and creamy feel as it goes down. A little dry but not much.
Enjoyability: I am very much enjoying this style of beer. I am usually an Imerial Stout drinker but the Barley Wine style does have some awesome beers. This is another brew that I know I will visit again.
