Poured from 22 oz. bottle into tulip glass

A - Warm ruby body with a foamy latte-colored head. As the head settled down, a nice lacing of foam lingered on the sides of the glass.

S - Very rich and tantalizing - caramel, vanilla, cherry and plum dominate. A whiff of alcohol astringency and a peat-like smokiness.

T - Warm toffee and caramel lead of the tasting. The come wave upon wave of vanilla, dark cherry, and dates. The malt has a caramel sweetness to it. The finish has a bit of whiskey and oak.

M - Thick but not overly sticky. Carbonation is pleasantly toward the low side.

O - A great barrel-aged beer. Whereas most of the barrel-aged beers tend to taste more like bourbon, the English-inspired malts in this barleywine lend a more Scotch whiskey flavor. Worth checking out, even thought it is expensive.
