On tap @ Redbones.
Murky brown colour with a thin lace and decent head retention to boot. Aromas of ripe figs, caramel and husky grain.
Figgy sweet, layer of caramel, hints of husk and yeast, and struggling hop balance. Full bodied and very creamy on the tongue off of a moderate carbonation. Higher alcohols are merely in ester form and somewhat get lost in the malt in a very deceiving way. Sweet finish with a slow warming feeling.
Overly drinkable barleywines can be a dangerous thing, this beers name is dangerous. Goes down some smooth and creamy, with layers of sweetness that are no cloying at all caress the taste buds to bring them closer to heaven. Highly recommended especially on tap.
Serving type: on-tap

4.56/5 rDev +6.8%

Appearance - The beer poured a dark malty color with a very modest head, which is appropriate for the style.
Smell - The aroma is quite malty and perhaps borders on being syrupy.
Taste - My initial impression of the taste is the sweetness of this ale. There are notes of sweet malt, nuts, tobacco, and oak. The oak is remarkable as this is not a barrel aged variation. The beer is warming on the way down, but it is certainly not hot.
Mouthfeel - The ale is almost sticky, coating the tongue and mouth. It allows for this taste to linger.
Overall - To this point, this is my favorite edition of the style. I like it a lot.
