12oz bottle from the 4Elf party into a snifter.
A: Pours a blackish body, looks like a stout. Light tan head.
S: Figgy, mild dark chocolate, dates and raisins, some mild dark fruit-like oxidation character. Rich and pleasant.
T: Intense raisiny sweetness, sherry-like, vanilla, light roasted malt and dark chocolate, cinnamon.
M: Thick-bodied, light carbonation, a bit syrupy.
O: I liked this beer after sitting down with it for a few hours. The "13 malts and 10 fermentable sugars" make it a bit too sweet, but this is miles ahead of many other barleywines in the same ABV range in terms of complexity and body, and the alcohol is very well-hidden. I'm curious as to how it compares to the barrel-aged version.
