On-tap at Three Cellars in Franklin, WI:

Pours mahogany with a head that becomes a lasting ring, leaving some trailing lace.

The smell is very rich and malty - toffee, nougat, with dried fruits

The taste is of rich, sweet malt - toffee and nougat backed by dried fruits. A touch of vanilla comes through. Alcohol warmth well-integrated adding to the complexity and taste.

Smooth despite the abv.

This is a wonderful English Barleywine! Incredible! It's a great "sipping" beer to say the least. The long finish lingered in a pleasant for hours after my 8 oz. drink was done. It's somewhat like a softly carbonated liqueur for beer drinkers! Sweet, but not sticky. An amazingly rich, great example of an English-style Barleywine!
