3.71/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

On tap @ the ABC in Harrisburg, served in an 8oz Wine Glass
I was a little disappointed in the serving size.

A - Dark ruby color with a rich creamy white head

S - Roasted malty, caramel scent, with lingering alcohol/fig smell

M - Starts out sweet, with a mellow oak/dry finish

T- Def. taste the roasted/burnt flavor from the oak, bitter dry finish, with the warming alcohol flavor. Pretty malty in the taste also

D - The 12.8% is def. not hidden. I would think the oak aging would mellow this out a little better but it didn't. As i drank it, it did get a little better, but i couldn't see having more than one. Overall not a terrible barely wine, i like to see when brew pubs take a stab at bigger beers instead of the usually 5 light offerings

P- ABC brewery...from notes.

A- served in a 8 ounce snifter glass. Its the only way you can actually acquire the beer. They dont bottle it. You are allowed only one per person as well. a deep red in color with hints of purple. A light dark brown head as well.

S- a roasted toffee type of smell along with malts.

T- a sweet oak roasted toffee flavor wiht hints of chocolate and molasses.

M- thick and full bodied. Tastes so good once it hit the lips and in the mouth. Creamy and juicy. felt like i bit into a gusher candy.

D- this bad boy will knock you on your ass if you have a bottle of it. at 12.80% its one of the highest i have had and i enjoy it. I have it every time i go there. i would love to get a case of it if they would bottle it. a sipping beer.

I had a serving of this at the Harrisburg brewery in a snifter.
A - A deep brown w/ garnet highlights and a thin tan head. The Brown is the color of Hershey's chocolate and the head leaves a decent amount of lace behind.

S - A deeply roasted scent w/ a whiff of alcohol and light stonefruit aroma.

M - A full on rich ale w/ a sweet syrup texture. Woody feel w/ a dry finish.

T - Full roasted flavor of barley malt w/ a cherry sweet taste and warming alcohol flavor. The roastiness and wood come out early in the flavor but all the malt begins to mask the taste of oak a bit. A bruiser of a barleywine w/ an earthy pine hop bitterness that stands up to the malt. A bit of spice and a full candy-like finish.

D - A bit on the roasty side and raw this is full of flavor, but could probably have more oak in the flavor for my taste. The alcohol is not masked and the 12.8% is apparent. The boozy warmth keeps it just above average drinkability. At times it is slightly overpowering like cherry cough syrup. I would probably stop w/ one.
