Thanks to queens1130 for sharing this one at AndrewK’s tasting.
Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, and a slight coffee aroma. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick on the finish. There is a medium bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but pretty strong.

On tap at Jackie O’s. Served in a sampler glass. Pours a moderately-dark brown color. Nose has sweet malt with a bit of caramel and a bit of darker malt. Flavor has a bit too much alcohol, but that’s balanced a good bit by the sweetness. Probably also tasted a bit boozy after just having had the ultra-smooth Dark Apparition on cask. Medium, full body. A slow sipper.

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!!!

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.

Review from a 4 oz. taster glass.
3.5 A: Medium brown color. Came without a head.
4.5 S: Big sweet neutral maltiness to start. Exceptionally fruity with raisin, currants, and plum. Caramel and toffee galore. Booze is very well hidden. This is negligibly better than the nitro-tap version. I was surprised how powerful the nose was on nitro.
4.0 T: Taste is for the most part like the nose except that there's also a light sugariness to accompany the other flavors. Again, quite similar to the nitro version, except some of the flavors were a bit sharper.
3.5 M: Heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Super smooth, but not nearly as creamy as the nitro version. Still, sufficient.
4.5 D: Good integration of flavors, easy to drink, great mouthfeel, and well balanced. I never thought I'd like a nitro version of anything so much better, but in this case I do.
Serving type: on-tap
