4.74/5 rDev +8.5%
A: A murky hazy ruby tinged brown body with a half finger white head that becomes a halo of lace after about five minutes.
S: It has deep caramel and toffee aromas. There is surprisingly not alcohol bite in the nose.
T: Incredibly rich and not overly complex. It starts with a rich caramel flavor then transitions to a deep toffee. There are earthy and almost bourbon flavors present throughout.
M: Nice heavy silk body with perfect carbonation.
O: Amazing Barleywine. Well worth actively seeking out.

4.24/5 rDev -3%
4oz pour at Stone Bistro poured into a stemmed glass.
A - Pours a coppery amber color with a small tan head. Creamy textured thick collar that leaves behind sparse lacing on the glass.
S - Caramel and toffee up front mixed with brown sugar...a bit nutty. Alcohol is noticeable but not overpowering. Smells super smoth.
T - Brown sugar...light molasses. Burnt sugar and lots of caramel. Mid level bitterness to balance things out. Mixed in is some mild orangey citrus.
M - Medium body with a tingly lower level carbonation. Really smooth...sweet but balanced well - the hops still hold up enough.
O - Overall holding up well. Very good...a 4oz pour is just about right - could be dangerous at higher volumes. Glad to have the opportunity to try this one - thought it wasn't possible.
