Deep, dark cherry red body with a respectable one-finger thick head. Soothing aroma of figs and dates, alcohol, caramel, tobacco. Toasty roasted malt flavor with an equally satisfying boozy warmth; raisins and plums; a cinnamon-like spiciness. Heavy bodied and thick sweetness with a dry element to the feel due to the ABV.

A well-done take on the barley wine style. Rich, deeply complex flavors, and great sensory experiences with aroma and mouthfeel. This beer was tried two years+ after it's release date and seemed to age well, still packing plenty of punch and delivering exceptional flavors.
