Deep amberin color with razor thin heqd and minor lacing. Smell is pungent hops, alcohol, black licorice, strawberry, and a minor cofffe note. Taste is hoppy up front, sweet fruit in the middle, and a lingering bittersweet oily finish. Mouthful is medium with medium carbonation. Overall a nice beer but not what i was expecting from a barleywine.

dark amber with light khaki head, touch of lace, Assertive hop aroma of eucalyptus with a touch of grapefruit. Flavor has hops upfront followed by burnt sugar/ caramel and orange marmalade finish. Tasty. strong. A beer with character.

Velvet hammer here. Appearance is a large, long lasting, tan to cream-colored, thick head, plenty of lace, and a clear, dark amber hue. Aroma is leather, dark ripe fruit, dark malt, yeast, hops, and lumber. Flavor’s similar to nose, with sweet being up front and bitter heavy in the finish and just right carbonic tang to balance. Body is good, but the heavy bitter yields some coarseness. Ditto for the finish, with some off flavors, though overall, I’d definitely have, just not right away. I'd be especially curious to try it with some aging.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle with a best by of 5/4/15.

Randomly came across a 4-pack of this and didn't have very high expectations, but I really like this one...may even be one of my favorite non-BA barleywines that I've tried to date. It's a bit nuttier than I expected, but it works well and is balanced by a lingering hop bitterness and some heat on the back-end. Even so, the alcohol is pretty well-masked and so it isn't too boozy at all. Overall, a real solid barleywine for a reasonable price.
