WOW! Beer pours a hazy murky brown with thin lazed tan head that leaves beautiful lacing. Smells of dark fruits, cherries and raisins, and plums. Sweet malt and hops interplay with a boozy 10.5 percent ale. NICE. Taste is grown sugar like malts up front with cherries and raisins on the back with a nice slow alcoholic warmth. Hops, though strong on the nose are nicely in the background hidden against all the malt. A good dose of alcoholic grain is in the aftertaste. Almost herbal in quality, but one of the most pleasant beers I have tried this year.

Ever since Thomas Hardy's bit the dust I have been looking for the next favorite barley wine, and while this is very close to a few aged ones I have had it deserves to be laid down for a few years to mature. An A PLUS!

Very dark barleywine I've never seen one this dark it's almost black barely looks burnt mahogany brown maybe a touch of ruby highlights with light khaki tan head going on, fine speckled lacing.

Aroma has cocoa notes, dark fruits, toasted nuts very English malt profile going on with herbal notes of herbal hops going on.

Flavor dark cocoa, caramel malt sugars come through...herbal hops just barely balancing it out. Darker roasted malts than most barleywines I've been through. Dark fruit raisin lingering with each sip the malts are in full force.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied even slow bubbled carbonation, rolls off the palate pretty smooth with each sip.

Overall, I'm happy with this complex ale going on here. A really nice barleywine in the heart of Ohio's Appalachia!!!

Grabbed a bottle for $6. Pours a very dark ruby brown with very little head. Smell is world class. Caramel, brown sugar, toffee, bread. Just fantastic. The taste doesn't quite hold up to the aroma. The alcohol overpowers the flavor just a bit. It is still outstanding though. It has a real barrel quality though there is no mention of. I think this beer is just a hair away from being a world class barleywine. Very true to the English style, so if you enjoy that, it is worth the price of admission. I would love to have a bourbon barrel version of this.

375 ml bottle, 2014 vintage. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown with a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like caramel, brown sugar, raisins/dark fruit, dark bread and a bit of chocolate. It tastes like caramel, toffee, brown sugar, dark fruit (raisins, cherries), bready malt, and some nuttiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and syrupy with moderate carbonation. I think it's a good English Style barleywine, I should have bought some more. Definitely worth trying if you're never had it before. $5.99 a bottle.

A: Really dark, almost like a stout; opaque dark brown/black, with a finger of foamy tan head. Head sticks around for a while, nice lacing.

S: Very pleasant smell; loads of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar, with dark fruits adding depth. A hint of earthy hops.

T: Really similar to the aroma, with a light toasted flavor being the biggest addition. Nicely balanced and never approaches being cloying despite consisting of mostly sweet flavors. Finish lingers for a long time, bringing in a light bitterness and a great burnt sugar flavor. In contrast to earlier reviews, I can't taste the alcohol, and the bottle I just bought says the beer is 10.5%, vs. the 9.4% it's listed at.

M: Thick body, light carbonation, smooth and sticky. Stickiness really helps the finish hang around, which benefits the beer quite a bit.

O: Nice barleywine from Jackie O's. The bottle may seem a bit pricy, but if it comes down to about the price of a pint of craft beer at the bar and it's this good, well worth the purchase.
