Pours with a minimal head as a barleywine should. No real aroma to speak of but that may be due to the low tempature of the pour. The first taste is surprisingly complex with a sweet oak primary flavor that sticks around for as long as you drink the beer. Honestly I've never been a fan of the early Social brews so I've ignored them recently despite living a few blocks away, but if this barleywine is any sign that was a mistake. A great beer in a style you love is always something to take notice of. Well done Social, I'll be back for more.
