This brew pours with the deepest ruby and a thin head the colour of a latte. Even before your nose gets close, you can pick out citrus hops, caramel/toffee and alcohol. It was very sweet on the toffee, fruit and caramel side, which is expected for a barley wine. The unexpected side was the huge hop bitterness and tartness at the end.
After all the surprises were over, the palate was left with a full mouth creamy pine and grapefruit hop resin. This combined with the heavy visceral sweetness makes one unique brew.

Nothing is better than a night of L4D with Shifty from the Shire. We let him go first and hold the propane tank.
Good brew, enough said. If you like'm strong, sweet and tart this is the one.
