look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - Poured into a brandy snifter. Barely a quarter finger head, but it remained constant for quite some time. Great dark color, almost a brown-red.

S - Whiffs of burned sugar, almost like caramel. Seems to be a bit overbearing on that front honestly, since the rest seems muted.

T - Full frontal assault of the caramel flavor hinted at in the scent, but quickly dissipating to a simple syrupy flavor with a dash of figs. Not as complex as I was hoping for, but enjoyable.

M - Warm, but not as warm as I have come to expect from a Barleywine. Smooth, however it was tainted with slight carbonation.

O - Okay beer. Most likely not one that I will pick up again.
