Big thanks to jmu500 for the great extra.
22oz. Brown bottle poured into a Russian River tulip.
A: Pours a lightish brown with copper hues. Decent head on the pour with some retention and little lacing.
S: Sweet caramel and toffee with plenty of dark fruits. Much more of the fruit from the big yeasty esters. Some hop aroma to balance... Almost seems like American hops with the fruits going around.
T/M: Dark fruits are still big with plenty of the caramel and toffee with a touch of molasses. Some hop bitterness and flavor to balance a touch. Alcohol is pleasant and soothing, though I'd never guess 13.5. Carbonation is mild and body is medium full to full.
D: Pretty damn tasty beer. One of the few pretty things beers that I've had but another tasty one.

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.
