Smells like a Barleywine should with nice dark fruits, chocolate, toffee and caramel but the maple and molasses I catch are strong on the nose.

This starts with a smooth light sweetness, maple, toffee, caramel and a honey dipped candy flavor. It ends with stronger toffee and caramel sweetness. FW does nothing but impress and this is right along with their best.

Bottle from Bert's
Pours a touch hazy reddish amber color with a decent sized tightly bubbled tan head that shows moderate retention. Aromas of caramel, brown and caramelized sugar with lots of juicy pitted fruit. Vanilla with a hint of woodiness. The flavor is sweet sugary malt with hints of oak and vanilla and a somewhat overly present alcohol heat. Hints of pitted fruits and a light smoked toffee round the flavor out. Thick body light carbonation, sticky syrupy with an alcohol burn. Very flavorful but shows all of the12% abv. could use a bit of time to mellow but I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another given half a chance.
