This was an absolute standout at last night's beer share, and as a result I still vividly remember the flavour the next morning. It is full of toasted coconut and quite a bit of roastiness for a BW, and breaks to a big salted toffee back end. Smell was vanilla, coconut, and general sweetness. This was almost cloyingly sweet, but still delicious.

This English style barley-wine was served to me in a 12 oz snifter, without a head. The serving was the darkest brown you could imagine, it was impenetrable. Aside from the very few bubbles spotted when this beer was served, there was nothing there besides the darkest brown liquid.

The smell was of heavy malt syrup, soy sauce, and some vanilla. Super sweet smelling soy sauce :)

The taste = malt syrup, vanilla, soy sauce, faded rich dark fruit, and sweet bread.

The mouthfeel for The Mother of All Storms was decadent. How? It was smooth, no carb, syrupy, and rich feeling.

Overall, this is a decidedly, smooth, rich, balanced, well-crafted, English Barley-wine that is perched atop the barley-wine food chain. It is easy drinking and dangerous. I have not had a comparable barley-wine.
