5/5  rDev +26.6%

Serving: Tap/Bottle.

This beer is hands down my favorite barley wine as of yet.

A: Deep amber color with a thick white-tan head.
S: Caramel, Dark Fruits, Toffee
T: Follows the nose on the palette, but finishes with a biscuity, bready on the aftertaste, which I found to be quite pleasant.
M: Thick and Rich viscosity, low carbonation, very pleasant.
O: Fantastic Beer! If you can find it, pick it up!

Had on tap at chappys in dayton. Served in tulip glass. Nice dark color, could not see if it was black or dark brown. Nice smell for the style. Nice a malty tastes, little to no taste of hops. Had an awesome creamy feeling. As the beer warmed it got better. I would say it maybe was served too cold to begin with. Awesome beer from a awesome brewery, can't wait to see more of their stuff in cans, and hopefully some day in bottles too.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

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.

On draft at Jackie O's
12 oz snifter

A: Very dark brownish black appearance very dense creamy head

S: toffee, raisins, dates

T: very nice for the style lots of dark fruit tastes bread toffee maybe a little vanilla

M: Super creamy very low carbonation I had to ask if it was on nitro very beautiful

O: While not an amazing beer it's pretty fair and true to style where this beer shines is the mouthfeel, if you see it on tap treat yourself don't search for it though.
