Type: 22oz. Bomber
Pours a light mahoghany brown in color w/ a 1/2 finger off-white head that produces, medium lacing. Aromas of brandy soaked fruits(both dark and light), fruitcake, and booze. The taste started off w/ a blast of oak up front, followed by dark fruits(raisin, plum, fig) and even some apple/pear, finishes w/ light caramel/toffee and subtle hop bite. Medium bodied and lush. Pretty easy to drink as the 13% ABV is well masked.
Overall, not in my top 5 EBW, but just shy. Definately deserving of it's top 25 ranking in the style. Would gladly drink again.

3.96/5 rDev -2.5%

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.
