Pours ruby hued brown with a small off-white head leaving a small ring on the edge.
Aroma features caramel, cinnamon and a lot of raisin/fig/plum character. Smells boozy.
Very interesting flavor profile. All of the aroma comes through and also a very distinct nuttiness. Almost like a cross between and English bw and a quad or something similar. Very fruity with some spice and a big brown sugar backbone. Alcohol warms the palate the whole way through.
Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. Alcohol is present throughout, but doesn't detract from the flavors.
Well I can't say this one isn't complex. I'm not sure I've ever really had a beer quite like this one before which is something I can't say often. I'm not entirely sure I love the entire flavor profile, but the overall was more enjoyable than the sum of its parts. Had a few too much Belgian character for my taste buds, but glad I got to try it nonetheless.

Served in a snifter glass.
Appearance: Purely transparent dark brown, medium head that comes off slightly light meaning that it dissolves just after one sip that an original rise of about a finger's length. Oh by the way it's off-white.
Smell: Has a sweet scent, almost like a toffee scent.
Taste: Sweet light coffee feel, not bitter really more bean type of taste with a twist of toffee that feels a bit sweet. Cafe con leche anyone?
Mouth: Medium bodied brew, it is sticky but not overwhelming like I would prefer it to be. I have been spoiled with other English barleywines and this one just comes up a notch or two above average.
Overall: Worth trying at least once but not something I would go hunting for. There's a lot better out there but you would need to really hunt. If this one comes along before hand grab it. It won't disappoint but I am not going to over-hype something to just let you down.
