3.7/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Murky amber glass glows translucently and manages to hold a thin cover of light tan foam. Full halo leaves sticky lace.

Smell: Big nose, full of malty sweetness with a light black bread topped with jammy fruits. Rum raisin, plum, and dates make up the fruit elements. Little toffee and alcohol round out the picture.

Taste: The promise of the nose is slightly compromised by the heavy alcohol which thins everything out just a bit. Sugary base reminds me of a Sugar Daddy candy. Hops don't show up on the radar, the balance is heavy toward sweet, almost cloying.

Mouthfeel: Heavy body is slick and slow to fade. Carbonation is low, alcohol is numbing.

Overall: A big bold barley wine, a good celebration. Could use some cellaring to cool the alcohol a bit, but a nice slow sipper for a gloomy day.

Big Thanks to Illudium for the sample!
