The beer offers lots of dark fruit flavor of dried dates, without being too deeply like caramelized dark fruit like a quad. This is surrounded by sweetness along with woody and earthy flavors.

The sweetness is almost too cloying as the beer tastes as if honey or a fruited syrup was added.

In general, good earthy and rich American barleywine flavors, but it is surrounded by too much sticky sweetness.
