This is a very unique brew. Pours to a deep mahogany brown body. Head is biscuity khaki in color. The nose is very odd but attractive. The first thought that comes to mind is a fresh opened box of cheese-it crackers. I know this sounds off putting but it is very inviting and really makes you anticipate the first sip. The flavor is big and bold with tons of cracker like toasted grain tones. The hops that are usually so prevalent in a Barley wine ale play only as a balancer here. Rich and spicy on the palate and it reminds me a bit of a old ale. I had this beer on my wants list for a long time. It was a real pleasure to enjoy this spectacular brew.

Poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter. Bottle dated 11/29/2013.

A: Deep mahogany brown with crimson undertones. Two finger dense tan head that settled to a thin ring leaving virtually no lacing.

S: Raisins, plum, caramel, cherries, brandy.

T: Raisins, dates, caramel and toffee. Nice combination of fruit and malt sweetness.

M: Medium body with mild carbonation. Sweet finish.

O: Very nice barleywine. Maybe one day I will get a chance to try MOAS, but this was a solid brew.
